Guildford Photographic Society is holding an open house event on Thursday 20th September, for local photographers to get a feel for whether they would be interested in joining the society. It is over 100 years old and one of the leading photographic clubs in the south. Organisers stress that there is no commitment to join and interested photographers can come to a second free meeting before they need to decide.

The event will include chances to mingle with potential and current members to talk photography as well as being shown a slideshow of current members’ summer work, which represents a wide variety of subjects and skills.

The society enjoys a very mixed membership, priding itself on being ‘an eclectic group of photographers’. Male and female, old and young, the club averages about 80 members a season. It offers a varied programe for these members including external speakers presenting their work, club competitions, photography trips and workshops. Members even get a chance to have their talents showcased in a public exhibition in May.

For those who wanted to join, the club meets every Monday evening at Burpham Village hall from 8-10pm. The website gives information about what is on, competition details and includes a gallery where members can share their work, which can be found here:

    The new members evening is on Thursday 20th September at Burpham Village Hall from 8 to 10pm. It will take place in the back room, via a door from the car park. Questions, problems, ideas, and an opportunity to engage in general social discussion with like-minded photographers.
