Welcome to Whitstable Photographic Group

Whitstable Photographic Group's aim is to encourage photography and to help our members produce better photographs. We are photographers of all abilities from in and around Whitstable.


Most members are now using digital technology, but we do have some who still use traditional film. Whether you use traditional or digital equipment, or a mixture of both, you will find beginners and experienced members here.


Details of the meeting place and time are on the contact page and the programme of events can be found here.


We hope our website will give you an outline of what we do and that you will consider joining us. We look forward to meeting and welcoming you at our group.

The Latest Club News

Seascape Competition, 6th January

Another visit from Alex Hare was extremely popular, with a large number of "Seascape" prints and DPI images submitted for his critique. Because he wasn't judging, he asked the photographers what their intention was when taking the picture, which proved interesting in itself. Alex said Claire Gilbert is "one of the finest landscape photographers in Kent", and he would know! Graham Miles, Kirsty Ralfs and Rupert Brun discussed the images after the meeting and agreed the standard of landscape photography in the club has improved enormously over the last couple of years and the images shown last night were superb. Congratulations to everyone who received a commendation from Alex.

On 19th November,  Paul Adams ARPS DPAGB FDPS judged our work in a battle with Herne Bay Photographic club. We won, with 360 points against their 344 points. Congratulations to Kirsty Ralfs and Rupert Brun who both scored 20, and double congratulations to Mike Gould for two 20s! Results here.
