Our Annual Exhibition 2020 is now available in an online gallery

Annual Exhibition 2020


Amersham Photographic Society is in Buckinghamshire, UK.  We meet weekly for much of the year for talks, competitions & other photographic subjects. Embracing both traditional and digital techniques, we have achieved outstanding success in regional and national events. We welcome newcomers to this very friendly society where members are keen to share their skills and knowledge. Come and try us! See the join or visit page for membership information, and the programme page for details of our events, all on Zoom until 2021, when we hope to be able to resume face-to-face meetings.

Meetings & Membership

Regrettably, all face-to-face meetings have been halted.  We had hoped to introduce hybrid (both physical and virtual) meetings in January 2021 but, clearly, we have to wait until it is allowed and desirable.  Until the end of March all our programmes, including Special Interest Groups, will be shown as hosted on Zoom.  The Committee will continue to investigate the feasibility of holding hybrid meetings.

Amersham Photographic Society (APS) is one of the top clubs in the UK; well-known for the breadth and quality of photographic and social activities undertaken, and also for the level of expertise within the club.  New members are always welcome, whatever their level of skill  –  there’s plenty of help & encouragement for those who want it.  If you would like to join us or are just wondering whether to join, then email the Membership Secretary (see the ‘Contact Us’ page).
See the ‘Join or Visit Us’ page for full information on membership.

When physical meetings resume, guests will again be welcome to visit us, free of charge, for a maximum of two visits.  Please introduce yourself to a Committee Member and sign our visitors book.  Annual membership rates are: Individual £55; Family £94.
Meetings are held at 8pm on a Monday at The Drake Hall, Amersham Community Centre, Chiltern Avenue, Amersham HP6 5AH.
