About The Club

Paignton Photographic Club is a long established photographic club with members of all ages and every walk of life. From 31st Jan 2022, regular Monday night meetings return to the Methodist Hall in Paignton where a wide range of guest speakers will talk about their photography and provide us all with hints and tips to help us improve our skill sets. Members are also encouraged to enter competitions which cater for every level within the club. For the 2021/22 season, our membership fee has returned to £40 for the year, pro-rata for members joining later in the season. Come join us today, new members always welcome.
