The Society always welcomes new members, especially keen photographers and we are sure you will enjoy sharing your interest in photography with others in our Society. Our membership includes a wide range of people from beginners to photographers well known nationally. We meet every Wednesday evening for a couple of hours, starting at 7.30.

Unit 13, Montpelier Central, Station Rd, Montpelier, Bristol, BS6 5EE

You are welcome to attend for a few evenings to find out about Bristol Photographic Society (there is a small charge of £3 per visit for a maximum of 3 visits, refundable on joining). Please introduce yourself to our Membership Secretary, Carol,  who will be delighted to welcome you and please feel free to chat to members especially during the coffee break.
The main activities are lectures, many of which are by nationally known photographers, and competitions for members to participate in. We also have monthly meetings of special interest groups such as studio work and digital imaging which are open to all members. We have good studio facillities including backgrounds and studio flash equipment for use by members. The Society organises a photography course every year starting in September with First Principles, which has proved to be very popular in recent years. We also have a well stocked library of photographic books on a variety of subjects if you wish to explore an aspect in greater depth.
