We are a long established club and our members have a very wide range of photographic interests. Our programme includes a large number of talks, demos and presentations by external presenters covering a full range of photographic genres and 'how to' topics. We also have a good number of more social evenings, members' presentations, competitions, appraisals and quizzes. Altogether we learn, experience, share and enjoy all aspects of photography from the art, technical and social perspectives. We also have a lot of fun!

We meet face-to-face at the WI Hall in Backwell on most Thursday evenings. However, do please check our programme before coming as some meetings are held over Zoom.

Special Interest Groups & Community Photography

We have a number of special interest groups that meet on a monthly basis throughout the year. These are a great way of advancing you photographic knowledge and skills. We are also active in the local communities by taking photos of events, sports fixtures and performances - and providing the resultant photos to the organisers on a royalty free basis. You can find more information on the Groups Page.

Do please contact us if you have an event, sports fixture or performance you would like photographed by using the Contact Info further down this page.


We currently maintain small exhibitions of our work in the Backwell and Brockway (Nailsea) Medical Centres, the New Chestnuts Dental Surgery in Long Ashton and the committee room of Backwell Parish Hall.
