Ashford Photographic Society is a well established and friendly club that caters for photographers of all abilities and interests, embracing all forms of photography, including smartphones.

Club nights

One of the major appeals of photography is that we never stop learning; be it from listening to other photographers talk about their work and how they approach it, or by having others comment on our photography. Our programme is arranged with this in mind and we invite both speakers and external judges to keep things fresh and fair.

You also get the opportunity to network with like-minded people and there is always another member only to willing to help you out with any questions that you have.
