Potteries Photography Club is a friendly club a couple of miles from the City Centre, Stoke on Trent. We have members of all ages with varying skills in photography, from beginners to professional. We have a varied program (please see our diary page for more information), with visiting quality speakers, organised photoshoots and presentations by members on photography and digital editing. We are also members of the MCPF.

Each month we hold ‘Photo of the Month’ where all members can submit four photos, the whole club votes and the winner earns much kudos. Please see the slideshow above for the latest winners and check out our gallery to see previous winners. The gallery also contains members’ pages where they have an opportunity to showcase six of their best photos.

We meet every Thursday night from 7pm until 9pm at Marychurch Centre, St Marys Hall, 153 Werrington Rd, Stoke-on-Trent, ST2 9AQ. Membership is £20 per year plus £2.50 for the club nights that you attend only. The first night is FREE! (It’s usually in Room 3, use the bottom door by the carpark).

Potteries Photography Club currently has spaces for new members. The first night is free, just so that you can come and get to know us. Membership costs just £20 per year, and then £2.50 for each club night that you attend (you don’t need to pay for the nights you are unable to join us). If we are on location then we pay this fee on the next on site meeting.

If any member is absent for more than 3 months without notifying anyone, then we will assume they will no longer wish to be a member and the place will be available to others wishing to join.

Please fill in the form to the left to contact our Membership Secretary regarding joining.
