Buxton Photographic Club was formed in September 1990 after some chance remarks in the local village shop. Since then it has celebrated it’s 20th Anniversary.
At the inaugural meeting nearly 60 people packed into the very small classroom in the local primary school. The club now has approximately 40 members.
In those early days everything was on film and even one or two members had their own darkroom, the rest had their work processed and printed commercially. There was a dip in the membership at the start of the last decade, but since the advent of digital photography it has increased and the club has picked up and more members who are producing and exhibiting their work.
Our members represent a broad spectrum of abilities from beginners to seasoned photographers. Our aim is to enable all members to achieve their best and therefore we are a friendly club and help each other when necessary.
We meet on the 1st and 3rd Monday of the month in Buxton village hall. Our programme is varied, with presentations, competitions and club outings. If you are interested in joining please feel free to contact us by clicking on the contacts button and contacting our club secretary.
Who are we?
