Wigan Photographic Society was founded in 1937 to promote the Art and Science of Photography in Wigan, a mission it continues to this day with much enthusiasm.
Membership is open to everyone interested in photography in the local Wigan Borough and surrounding region be they amateur or professional, artist or scientist, young or old, we welcome all enthusiasts.
The club meets every week and has comprehensive programme of photography based activities including monthly internal competitions against fellow members, plus external competitions with other clubs. We hold a local annual exhibition, host visiting lecturers, provide external workshops and organise regular field trips to UK and global locations.
In addition, we provide computer and camera workshops such as Photoshop and camera techniques and skills, plus advice and guidance via a solid network of experienced photographers and mentors.
