Our History

Durham Photographic Society was founded in 1892, originally as Durham City Camera Club, and has run continuously in its present form since the club was re-formed in 1947 after a break in WW2. We are a community of photography enthusiasts who share a passion for capturing the world around us.


Our society is affiliated with the PAGB through the NCPF and we are a registered charity (Charity Number 1100156).

The societies weekly meetings comprise of lectures, presentations, competitions and members evenings.

Other activities include practical digital image processing evenings, on the first Wednesday of most months. Our “Assignments” are frequently organised photography outings, mostly to local venues. As well, there are formal and informal trips organised with fellow members to popular destinations and events, such as the Lake District, Edinburgh Fringe, Whitby Goth and Steam Punk gatherings.

The Society puts on exhibitions whenever invited  and our previous venues have been Durham Cathedral and the Durham University Botanic Gardens.
