Photographic Society

Calling all beginner, amateur and professional photographers at the University of Southampton! Our regular Tuesday 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 £25 a year!

They cover topics from the basics of using cameras to advanced camera techniques and post-processing (in Lightroom and Photoshop). Membership also gives you access to our flash studio, darkroom and access to our collection of photography gear for your own projects! This membership also makes you eligible for all of our photography-oriented trips, letting you practice with the help of our experienced committee members out there in the field rather than just in a lecture hall! We usually meet every Tuesday for photography lectures and hands-on workshops, with occasional weekend activities! There is no previous experience or knowledge needed to join SUPS; all you need is an interest in anything photography-related!
