About us

Welcome to Overton Photographic Club. Established in 1977, we celebrate our 40th anniversary this year.

Our meetings take place in Overton Recreation Centre, Bridge Street, from 7:30pm on Friday evenings during September through to May. On these evenings we enjoy a range of activities from subject-focused speakers to workshops and product presentations. They provide inspiration and help us grow as photographers – as well as being entertaining.

We run as a membership club, but visitors are always very welcome on any evening for £2 on the door – just turn up. Find out what is happening each evening in our programme and come along!

All members qualify to take part in our many competitions in print and digital formats, choosing to enter as general or advanced. Each competition is judged by a professional photographer who gives constructive criticism on each anonymously presented photo. This invaluable advice helps us all take better photos – and try to understand what judges want. We also take part in regional and national competitions as a club and occasionally hold exhibitions.

Here is a sample of our recent work:
