About AP&IS

Ashton-under-Lyne Photographic & Imaging Society is a long-established - but forward-thinking - group dedicated to serving the needs of photographers in the immediate area; all new members are welcome whether from across Tameside or the neighbouring boroughs.


Various opportunities are provided during our weekly meetings, including the opportunity to learn from fellow members and listen to a variety of outside speakers, drawn from the ranks of both professional photographers and leading amateurs; topics covered encompass a wide range of disciplines within both photography and image editing, and are designed to appeal to members regardless of their experience or ability.


Members are also provided the opportunity to showcase their own work, with competitions held most months of the year and appraised by an independent judge; since October 2020, there has been a New Members section running alongside the Open section to help encourage participation.
