Attention - Calling All Freshers!

New to Portsmouth University? Great, you're going to love it!

One of the best parts of University, is joining a society. No matter which one(s) you choose, you'll meet some great people, and share some awesome experiences.

There is a society to suit everyone, and here's why you should choose to join us...

A Society For Students - By Students.

The Portsmouth University Photography Society is put simply, a group of students with a passion for photography. Members benefit from photography tutorials, trips and social activities; and once you become a paid member, unlimited equipment hire too.

Everyone is welcome, and each week we offer members something new. So whether you want to start taking great photos, perfect your skills, or simply show off your talents, why not give us a visit?

We have loads of events coming up, including photo walks, city visits and cool creative photoshoots. Come find us at freshers fayre, or simply come along to a meeting. Don't have anyone to come with? Neither did our president, and he turned out ok...

Frequently Asked Questions

What Does The Society Do?

We form a large group of friendly photographers, that get together to learn new skills, and put them to the test. We have Tuesday sessions each week, as well as bi-monthly trips at weekends.

Is It Just Taking Photos?

No. We alternate meetings around everyone's interests. Some week's we learn new skills, others we go ice skating. It's up to you what you do in-between, though we do have competitions if you are a happy snapper!

How Often Do You Meet?

Every week. You can find out what's happening on our Facebook page, and the full schedule will soon be available to view on this website.

Where Do You Meet?

While it changes depending on the event we are running, we meet in room 1.08 - Eldon building, more or less every week. Check your emails and our Facebook page for the latest information.
