Lancaster Photographic Society is for anyone with an interest in photography. Everyone is welcome! We are people who make pictures purely for the joy of making pictures. Our members use all kinds of photographic equipment, from film cameras to the latest DSLRs to mobile phones. The photographic equipment that you have isn't important, so come along and learn how to develop your photography skills.
We meet on Monday evenings, 7.30 til about 10 (and then on to the pub next door), with formal meetings from September to April, and workshops and trips over the summer months.
Please note that the Society has moved to a new venue. Meetings from 15/1/18 onwards will be at:
White Cross Industrial Estate
LANCASTER LA1 4XF
A mobile Loop System is available at Cameron House. It is located next to the First Aid box on the wall rack adjacent to the Pool table.
