U1B Opportunities

Eastbourne Photographic Society

EASTBOURNE PIER by Adrian Manktelow
We are a member of the Kent County Photographic Association (KCPA), the Sussex Federation of Photographic Societies (SxPS) and are affiliated to the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain (PAGB). Meetings are held at the Eastbourne Blind Society, Longstone Road, Eastbourne, BN22 8DA, UK (map link), from September through to May of the following year.

Aims and Objectives

The aim of the society is to help those interested in photography in all its forms, to increase their knowledge and enjoyment of this absorbing and creative hobby. All members are encouraged to take part in the activities of the society which, as well as talks by well-known photographic experts, include competitions for members work and outings.

New Members

Beginners are especially welcome, no matter how limited their knowledge or equipment, and there are Tips & Techniques Forums to give guidance on the basics of taking and making good photographs. In addition to this, the ready help and advice of the more experienced members is always available; plus there is a photographic library of books and magazines.

Regular print, slide and digital projection competitions are held. These are divided into classes to give members of all standards the opportunity to compete at their own level, and to receive constructive comments on their work. Shop or trade processed prints are accepted in all classes; digital or computer prints and slides are welcome providing the original image/images are taken by photographic means.

To those of you joining EPS this year, welcome! Many of the club activities and competitions may seem a little confusing, so if you are unclear about anything, please don't hesitate to ask. EPS members aim to be friendly and approachable, so if you feel unsure about anything, find it difficult to get involved, or perhaps feel left out please let the Chairman, or any other Committee Member know. We want you to enjoy your membership, and if you aren't happy, we want to know!

If you are interested in joining EPS please contact us through the ‘Contact Us’ page or turn up at one of our Friday meetings.

Visitors / Guests

Visitors / Guests are always welcome to attend any meetings. Please arrive at about 7.15 so we can welcome you before the meeting starts.
