Meetings cost on £3 per session, with the first meeting free for non-members. Annual member is just £6.
We meet at the Newport Parish Centre in Town Lane, Newport on the 1st and 3rd Wed-nesdays of each month from 7.30pm to 9.30pm.
A central aspect of the club is to help members improve their photography skills, both technical and artistic. You'll also find us a very friendly group with skills ranging to beginning to advanced.
Within the club we don't hold competitions but do have monthly 'Members' Challenges where we show and critique images on a chosen theme.
We compete against other Island clubs in for competitions, In 2018 We won the print panel of five competition hosted by Sandown and Shanklin Camera Club and also the IPC Trophy which was hosted by the Isle of Wight Photographic Society.
