About the Club
The Club meets every Thursday at 7.30pm in the Trinity Parish Church (formerly the Rankin Church) in Strathaven and our season runs from September until May each year.
We have a range of events at our weekly meetings including print and digital competitions and inter-club competitions. We also have a number of speakers visiting to cover various Photography topics such as portraiture, lighting , PC and Photoshop use and lots of other aspects of photography. There are also plenty of opportunities to learn and share photography tips with our members in a casual and social setting.
The Club has members of all abilities and new members are always welcome. Please take a look around our website and if you think you might be interested in coming along then contact any of the members on our Contacts page or through the contact form.
