We pride ourselves on being a friendly club that welcomes members, regardless of their photographic skills, from Tameside and neighbouring areas.


The club is open to novices and experienced photographers alike, with regular monthly competitions where independent judges give constructive feedback aimed to improve both photography and post-production skills - this includes a separate section for new members to showcase their work.


Throughout the year we have talks and practical workshops on a variety of subjects - alongside trips out to places of interest in the summer months, which provide a chance to put our photography skills to use.


Alongside our regular meetings, the club also provides a monthly opportunity for members to revive, (or learn), darkroom skills of developing film and producing prints.


Whilst photography is the main aim of the club, our goal is to consolidate the social aspect of it by planning days and evenings out - and even weekends away.


Above all, we want people to enjoy their photography and make it what it should be - FUN!


We meet every Thursday from 7:30pm to 10:00pm at;

St John's Church

155 Kings Road

Hurst Cross

Ashton-under-Lyne
