Welcome to Hoylake Photographic Society

Hoylake Photographic Society, based in Wirral, was started back in 1950 by a few enthusiastic photographers as part of the Civic Society, which is long defunct. It was meant to highlight the connections between science and art and we have an archive of mounted black and white pictures from their first exhibition.

Today we have moved away from dealing with chemicals in darkrooms to processing digital files on computers. We also have members who regularly use their phones rather than their cameras. It is true that the best camera is the one you have with you at all times.

We arrange a wide variety of speakers, competitions, demonstrations and members’ nights, meeting on Friday evenings at Newton Village Hall, West Kirby. We also have a fortnightly, informal group when we run critique nights to help newcomers, opportunities for members to tell us about their interests and competitions designed to stretch the imagination. This group sets their own programme for the following year. More information may be found on the Club Page.

Come along and meet us.
