Please some along to any of our Thursday nights to see how ADAPS can help you improve your photography and network with like minded people.

We hold a variety of photography-related events on Thursday nights all year round, including practical photography sessions, workshops, guest speakers and competitions.

Members also often take part in other events such as studio photography sessions, digital imaging workshops, photography trips, etc on other days.


Our Thursday events begin at 8.00pm.

If you are visiting for the first time please aim to arrive for between 7.15pm – 7.45pm
to have a chat before the main event begins at 8.00pm.


Happy New Year to all our members. We wish you health and good fortune and great photo opportunities in 2023.

We start the new year with a strong line up of speakers. On January 5th we welcome the new year with a talk from our archivist, Len Hudson who will be describing the history of our club.

On 12th January we welcome Martyn Jones who will be talking about astrophotography, and on 19th January, Vicky Outen will be explaing how to use social media in our photography.
