PLEASE NOTE: Due to the continuing impact of Covid-19, the committee have agreed that rather than close down operations completely, that we should instead operate the club vitually using Zoom as a means to maintain contact, enjoy presentations and of course, review the results of competitions. You can find the new program of events elsewhere on this site.

Once normallity resumes, we will revert to our normal Monday night meetings (September - May), these commencing at 7:30pm in the Methodist Church Hall, Palace Avenue, Paignton, TQ3 3EQ. Meetings generally last 2 hours or so with a break for tea/coffee. During the season we cover a wide range of subjects with visiting speakers and judges, competitions and some practical sessions. We aim to promote photography by encouraging members to show work (purely optional) to review groups and to enter club competitions, which are assessed by guest judges. 

Our normal programme includes:
  • visiting photographers showing their work
  • Illustrated talks on particular topics, often travel related
  • audio visual shows of excellent images from International Exhibitions
  • the opportunity to enter club competitions and receive helpful comments from experienced judges
  • the chance to develop your digital image manipulation skills with expert help

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.
