Welcome to Whitstable Photographic Group

Having fun with photography.
We have an exciting programme of talks and competitions for the 20 / 21 season. At present all meetings are online, please see the "contact" page for information about joining the club.
 
Our members are of all ages and abilities and we welcome new and experienced photographers to the club; most members use digital cameras, including camera-phones, and others shoot film. Our meetings feature talks from leading photographers, practical evenings and friendly competitions judged by supportive experts. In the summer we visit different locations to take pictures together. We hold an annual exhibition and through our affiliation to the Kent County Photographic Association our members can take part in county and national events.
 
Membership costs £35 a year (only £20 if you are a student) and we also charge members £2 per physical meeting to cover the cost of a hot drink and biscuits. Guests are welcome for £3.  We usually meet weekly on Monday evenings from September to May, at 7:45pm for an 8pm start in the Parish Social Centre, 15a Castle Road, Whitstable, Kent, CT5 2DY. Like many organisations we have moved our activities online and expect things to stay that way for the rest of this season. We sometimes allow guests to buy tickets for online talks, check the "Coming Up" page for for the latest information. 
 
We hope you enjoy looking at our members' work in the Gallery and if you are interested in joining us we look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to our group.
Practical evenings are always popular at Whitstable Photographic Group. Members help each other to improve their skills and try different types of photography. As well as table-top and macro photography we have held portrait nights, tried light painting and Cyanotype printing.

"Red Patch Somewhere"

 

Our online events continued with a DPI competition judged by Paul Parkinson LRPS CPAGB. The theme was a pun, "RPS (Red Patch Somewhere)" and many imaginative images were entered. Some clearly showed a sense of fun whilst others were of a more serious nature. The winning photo was "What's In The Bag" by Peter Banks, whilst Rupert Brun came first overall.

DPI Creative

 

On 23rd November we held our annual "Creative" competition, judged by Janine Ball DPAGB ARPS BPE3*. Congratulations to Kirsty Ralfs for her winning image "Moving Day" and for first place overall, with Lesley Amos second and Jerry Stone third over all.
