Alba Photographic Society hosts a varied syllabus which includes external and internal competitions, guest speakers, practical tuition nights and social evenings.


Interested in joining?

No problem. Come along on any of our club evenings and see what we can offer you. Our friendly members are only too willing to help with any queries you may have. Why not even bring a friend along for the evening. Your first two visits are free, though you would be expected to join thereafter.
