Club history We are one of the West Countrys leading photographic groups, having been formed in 1948 by a handful of keen photographers. From these humble beginnings, we have grown to a group of almost 60 members.
We meet in a modern Hall with plenty of car parking, and our meetings are held in a friendly and convivial atmosphere. Warmley is on the edge of Bristol and within easy reach of Bath and the M4, whilst being in South Gloucestershire and very close to Wiltshire. We are glad to say that we draw members from all of these areas.
Over the years, Kingswood Photographic Society has become renowned for the quality of its annual programme, with an emphasis on well-known outside speakers from around the UK. In addition, members run other evenings, with the aim of sharing their knowledge with others. Practical and competition evenings make up the balance of the programme, with AV being one of the latest innovations.
Most of our members work digitally, and we hold a number of Digital Workshops as part of our main programme. These are some of the reasons Kingswood Photographic Society attracts an enthusiastic, talented and friendly membership. Above all, the programme is designed to suit photographers of all ages and abilities.
We were very fortunate in being awarded a Lottery Grant in 2008 which enabled us to upgrade a number of essential items and in addition to purchase a laptop computer and a digital projector.
An online newsletter is published regularly, with news of meetings, Competition and Exhibition results, articles of interest and photographic tips. You can see the latest edition by looking at the 'OnLine Newsletter' page.
The Society archive of photographs, newspaper cuttings etc, are contained within four albums. The President maintains these albums and members may borrow them upon request.
