Established in 1900

Southend Photographic Society

Thank you for visiting our website, I hope you enjoy viewing our images.

We meet on Friday evenings from September to May, when we will be delighted to welcome you to our Society, where you can make new friends with a common interest.

Our meetings range from competitions, instruction evenings to illustrated talks on a wide range of subjects, by visiting photographers.

Whether you have a simple compact or a more advanced camera, we will be very pleased to see you. We welcome new members of differing skills and offer tuition when required and, most importantly, all in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.

Come and join us and have fun with your photography.

We would like to say thank you to Lisa Heath and all the staff at the Forum who helped us with our Society’s 99th Annual Exhibition, which was a great success. We had many visitors who showed great interest in our display, asked question about us and made comments in our visitors book. Thank you all.

Our 2014-2015 season is now underway and we would like to offer a formal welcome our new members, who have joined us this year. Some of you have already made your mark in our first digital competition. Well done. We hope that you will enjoy a season with us.

If you are visiting this site for the first time and have an interest in photography, why not come along for an evening to see what it is all about. You may decide to join and share your passion with us.
