Established in 1937, Hampstead Photographic Society is northwest London's foremost photographic club. The Society welcomes anyone with an interest in photography, from beginners to professionals. We are part of Surrey Photographic Association (which is itself part of Photographic Alliance of Great Britain).

The core of our comprehensive programme is a series of talks covering topics ranging from photojournalism, the art of photography, history of photography, urban/street photography and travel photography to specialised subjects.

Our monthly competitions, which are judged by external specialists, give members a chance to show their work, and have it assessed.

Several Society members are highly expert in digital photography, and offer one-to-one tuition in addition to delivering talks on digital techniques.

On informal Members’ evenings everyone can exchange ideas and obtain advice.

The Society organizes photographic outings in London, the UK and further afield in Europe. It also participates in competitions and exhibitions organised by Surrey Photographic Association and Photographic Alliance of Great Britain.
