Introduction

Winchester Photographic Society (WPS) was founded in 1923. It is now one of the largest clubs in the southern region with a thriving membership of around 180 and with weekly attendance averaging 80. Our members' photographic interests are broad and we try to reflect this in our programme of events. In terms of photographic skills, our membership covers all levels, from absolute beginners who have yet to purchase a camera, to those who travel the world producing sensational images of people and places, flora and fauna.

We meet on Tuesday evenings 7:30-10:00pm from September to May at the Performance Hall in the Winchester Discovery Centre. See the Contact tab for map and directions.

Extensive information about membership can be found under the Membership tab.

The President's Welcome

A warm welcome to our society website. I sincerely hope you will find the information useful and feel motivated to join us whether as a member, potential member or visitor.

We are one of the largest Photography Clubs in the South with a current membership of around 200 and have many interesting events for all levels of photographer.

Our main programme, like most photographic societies, is made up of speakers and competitions. What makes WPS so special is the quality of the speakers we invite and the number of extra events that we run over and above our Tuesday meetings.

Our programme of speakers this year is one that will provide something of interest to everyone. Our headline events are the Autumn and the Spring Lectures; these feature: Joe McNally, a world-famous photographer mixing photo-journalism with fantastic lighting and Tim Flach, an internationally renowned wildlife photographer with a difference.

As stated above we run many other special groups including outings and events. Our aim is to provide something for everyone, whether you are starting out on your photographic journey or are already an advanced worker. A look under our “What’s On” tab will show the diversity that Winchester Photographic Society offers, from an ARPS advisory group to one for Beginners.

Non-members are very welcome to any of our Tuesday meetings (sub-groups and workshops are restricted to members only) for £5 per visit (max 4 visits per year) – simply turn up, sign-in and take a visitor badge. Those who subsequently join the Society will have these fees deducted from their joining fee. Full details about membership can be found under the Membership tab.

If you are new to photography or already an experienced camera user, come to Winchester Photographic Society and share your passion and knowledge with other like-minded folk. Whether your interest is sport, travel, people, landscapes or nature, in a society of our size there are always plenty of other enthusiasts to compare experiences with.

Our Membership pages offer much more detail about what our society has to offer. Take a look, and then come to one of our meetings. Please be aware that due to the success of the society we usually need to run a waiting list for new members.

More information on what we do can be found here. Glyn Paton LRPS President 2018-2019
