What We Do

Welcome to the University of Bath Photography Society!

Our membership consists of amateurs, hobbyists, professionals and even those just interested in learning a little more. Nor do we mind if you are a part of the Nikon, Canon, Sony master-races. Whether you have a DSLR, compact or are more of an iPhone photographer, we would love to welcome you to our society!

We have themed competitions so everyone can show off their talent and receive advice on how to improve, as well as regular photowalks in Bath and beyond. This year we plan to bring in more social events so if you're more of a social photographer than a serious shooter, have no fear. We are still for you!

The benefits of being a member also includes free equipment hire and also the chance to do some event photography. People often come to us when they want events photographed, and our members are our first port of call! It is a fantastic experience.

It doesn't matter what equipment you have, or whether you shoot digital or film, we run a range of events you'll find fun and helpful and you'll be surrounded by other photographers in the process.
