About Us

Welcome! Stockport Photographic Society is composed of (mostly amateur) photographers with different interests and levels of experience. Although the club was founded in 1890, we're most definitely grounded in the 21st century!

Our meetings programme includes an eclectic mix of presentations, as well as workshops, image surgeries, photoshoots and competitions (between members, and against other clubs). There's also time to socialise over a cuppa (and later, in the pub).

We meet on Tuesdays at 7.30pm — apart from our summer recess in July and August.

When we're not on a photoshoot, we meet at:

Meeting Rooms opposite St George's Church
(off the A6 Buxton Road) Heaviley, Stockport SK2 6NX

New members are welcome, however (in-)experienced in photography. A fancy camera is not a requirement; we use anything that takes photos. Anyone interested in joining us is welcome to just come along to see what happens, or contact us if you prefer.

Here are some maps to help you find us. The Meeting Rooms are on a private road, off the A6 Buxton Road, to the south of Stockport town centre. Just look for the huge church with a spire (which looks a bit like Thunderbird 3).
