Hey there, welcome to Photoclub!

This small article is going to be a small introduction to the society and the new committee. Photoclub is an award-winning society that was created in 2012. We have been teaching photography, doing workshops, bringing in guest speakers, going on trips, and doing many more fun activities since then! Our mission is to give students a safe place to make friends enjoy their time at university while doing something they love. We aim to make our society a home away from home and to help with anything that we can. We know that starting university is an exciting time and that you have many questions. We are here to answer any of them to the best of our abilities on any of our social media or email!
Whether you're just beginning with photography or if you're very experienced, Photoclub will be the perfect place to make friends and have fun with photography! If you enjoy photography, videography, editing, and other aspects of the media world, this is the society for you and we'd love to have you! One of our photo club family traditions is our yearly exhibitions: 'Between these walls'. Due to COVID, last year's exhibition was online, you can check out our member's work in the following link: http://photoclubexhibition.myportfolio.com/
