Amersham Photographic Society is in Buckinghamshire in the UK. Under normal circumstances we meet weekly for much of the year for talks, tutorials and competitions. We embrace both traditional and digital techniques and have achieved outstanding success in regional and national events. Newcomers are always welcome 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 for programme details which will reappear post-Covid-19.

Meetings & Membership

Regrettably, all face-to-face meetings have been halted until January 2021.  Until then, our programmes, including Special Interest Groups, will continue to be hosted on Zoom.  Meanwhile, the Committee is investigating the feasibility of holding hybrid meetings (both physical and virtual) from the new year.

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 in 2021, 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 will be held at 8pm on a Monday at The Drake Hall, Amersham Community Centre, Chiltern Avenue, Amersham HP6 5AH.
