Bishop’s Waltham Photographic Society is a relatively new society that is still growing steadily. We meet on the first Thursday of each calendar month in the Church Hall in Free Street Bishop’s Waltham at 19:30.
In addition to the regular monthly meetings, we organise around six workshops a year, a number of field trips to a wide range of venues and an annual exhibition. Included in the programme are a number of visiting speakers who share their individual passions with us on a variety of topics such as sports photography, painting with light and much more.
The members of the Society have a wide range of experience from absolute beginners, with their first newly acquired camera, to experienced members who have been taking photographs for some time. We all share a passion for photography of all genres from landscapes to portraits, wildlife and still life. In fact there are no limitations (other than legal ones) on the type of images produced.
Our main aim is to improve and develop the skill levels of all our members. We achieve this through workshops and by the more experienced members helping those with less experience. This is on any topic from just using a camera to post processing and printing. There’s a ‘print table’ at the interval during each meeting where anyone can raise any issue with which they may need assistance.
The Society promotes a friendly and informal atmosphere in which we can all enjoy our shared experiences and share our combined skills.
Prospective members are very welcome to come along to a meeting to see how it all works. Those who simply want to join may download an application form.
