You'll find a very warm welcome at the Lowestoft Photographic Club, which meets at the Trinity Church Hall, in Lowestoft, Suffolk. The church hall is accessed by turning into Park Road from Yarmouth Road, then turning left into the car park. It is at the rear of the church, opposite to Harleston House Care Home. See location page.
We meet each Wednesday evening from September to May, starting at approx. 7:30 pm and generally finish before 10:00 p.m.
When the season has ended we have some summer trips that are kindly supported by Pam Greystone with plenty of opportunities to take photographs that will be used in the next season's competitions.
Our programme is a mix of competitions, practical activities, talks by members and visiting lecturers. Our aims are to assist in developing photographic skills through the regular and friendly exchange of ideas. Membership is open to anyone interested in or practising photography, either conventional film or digital.
The Lowestoft Photographic Club is affiliated to the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain, through the East Anglian Federation. This means that members can gain recognised photographic qualifications for their work. For more details, click the links above for the official sites.

Digital is now the biggest type of photography used by members, alongside conventional film and slides. We provide an extensive series of events. In addition, the club offers a variety of outdoor and social meetings during the summer months.
Interest Groups - To cater for the special interests of some members, small groups often come into being and meet informally to share and develop expertise in a particular photographic skill. Examples might include: Portraiture, Landscape and Natural History.
Special Equipment Loan - The Club owns some items of equipment, including full studio lighting sets, which are available for home loan to members for personal use only. Further information from, and requests to the Equipment Officer, Colin Snowling.
