Calling all beginner, amateur and professional photographers at the University of Southampton! Our regular meetings cover a wide variety of topics, from theory through to hands-on experience. We run weekly lectures and workshops and we try to get out and about to photograph all manner of things too! For people more experienced in photography, our events team may be for you. We offer photographic services at a range of events, such as balls, society meals and sports events. We have a fully equipped studio and darkroom with facilities to develop and scan black and white film. If you're new to photography, do not fear, we'll help you to take the photos that you're aspiring to shoot. We also have a selection of cameras, lenses and other equipment that as a club member you are welcome to borrow. Best of all you get all this for just £20 a year!
