The photographic society was originally based in the Daimler Radford factory social club and the darkroom was inside the factory in some buildings in the scrap yard. Around 1970 it moved into the social club where we had a purpose built darkroom with equipment for 35mm and 6x6cm printing. The club competed successfully against various clubs in the Midlands, some of the social events included an annual dinner dance in the social club, coach visits to London, Kew Gardens, Slimbridge and Grimsby docks.
The club has now moved on to digital photography with members using a range of compact and SLR cameras. We have a varied program with competitions both internal and external against other clubs, demonstrations, practical evenings and visits to try different types of photography in the local area.
We are members of the Mercia group (a group of Coventry Photographic Clubs) and combine once a month at the Copswood sports club for lectures on a range of photographic topics.
The club is continuing to grow and is a great way for photographers young and old to come and hone their skills. If you're interested in learning more about the way your camera works and improving your photography come along on Wednesday evenings. We look forward to seeing you there!
