Welcome to Bury St Edmunds Photographic Society

The Society was founded 1958 as the St Margaret's Camera Club and is open to all those who are interested in photography whether they are novices, amateurs or professionals.

Through practical demonstrations, competitions, lectures or just by talking to others about photography, the Society's aim is to help its members learn more about the art, to encourage the development of photographic skills and the appreciation of photography. Advice is always on hand, no matter how experienced or inexperienced you are.

With its membership of the East Anglian Federation, it is affiliated to the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain and as a result it has access to some of the best judges and lecturers on photography throughout the country. But above all, the Society is composed of, run by, and run for the benefit of its members.

Annual membership is £50.00 per person (£20 for full time students 16-21, free for under-16s with accompanying adult member). For anyone wishing to come to an occasional meeting there is a charge of £3.00 per person however entry to club competitions is only allowed to full members.

The current season runs from 3rd September 2015 to 19th May 2016 (see the progamme page for details). Meetings commence at 7.30pm and there is normally time before and after, and during the coffee-break, to talk to any of the committee or members of the Society about any photographic problems or questions you may have. In addition to the main programme of events, summer meetings are also organised and details posted nearer the time.
