Atherton & District Amateur Photographic Society


Atherton & District Amateur Photographic Society (ADAPS) is a progressive photography society and one of the largest camera clubs in the Wigan, Leigh and surrounding area. We are part of the Lancashire and Cheshire Photographic Union.

We are a group of enthusiastic amateur photographers involved in all aspects of photography – digital, film, black and white, colour, landscapes, wildlife, portraits, creative, you name it…

We’re a very friendly photography club and we actively welcome visitors and new members. ADAPS is fully inclusive, run by the members for the members. We hold events all year round for photographers of all skill levels, from complete beginners to competition winners.

If you like taking photographs, want to learn and improve your skills, and have a lot of fun doing it, come and join us. We meet every Thursday evening from 8.00pm and we hope to see you soon.
