The Society

The Society meets most Thursdays from Sept to May at the Priory Centre, Church Road, Stretton, DE13 0HE starting at 7.30pm and anyone is welcome to come along to the evenings.  We are a group of mainly amateur photographers who enjoy looking at other peoples work and discussing all aspects of photography.  We have a mixed range of abilities from the beginners to the more advanced workers, to those who generate an income from photography.

The aim of the Society shall be the encouragement and advancement of photography amongst its members.
