Welcome to Keswick Photographic Society.

Keswick Photographic society is an active, successful and vibrant club that enables photographers from around the region to come together in a friendly atmosphere to share knowledge and ideas, to socialise, and to make new friends with a common interest.

We cater for photographers of all abilities and aim to offer something for everyone in our programme of events. We have regular competitions, practical evenings and sessions run by our members.  Our speaker programme offers a wide and diverse range of subjects. We encourage our members to give a talk about their work. 

If you are new to the site, have a look around and if you live locally and have an interest in photography.  So why not come along for the evening and see what we have to offer. There is no obligation to join and there is a nominal fee for guests.

We meet on Wednesdays, from September until April. The evenings start at 7:30pm and finish at around 9.30pm.
