Eastbourne Photographic Society
Welcome to EPS


If you're interested in photography Eastbourne Photographic Society is the place for you. We are a thriving camera club with around 100 members of all ages and we support all aspects of photography whether you're using digital, film or your phone.

Whatever your passion - Nature, People, Landscapes, Travel, Digital Art, Abstract, Mono - we have members with that interest, experience and expertise, willing to share and help you develop your photography.

We are very proud of EPS's success over the years and are enjoying a tremendous surge in the quality of work produced by our members - much of this from newer joiners encouraged by the digital age and mobile technology - not bad for a camera club formed over 115 years ago!

Come to one of our Friday night meetings which start at 19:30 and are held at Eastbourne Blind Society, Longstone Road, Eastbourne, BN22 8DA (map). See our exciting PROGRAMME. More information on the Joining EPS page.


Next  Friday Night Meeting

Friday night meetings are now closed until our first meeting on 29 August - so make a note to come to the Welcome Evening at the end of August. Also have a look at our exciting Programme for the 2014-15 season it promises to be a very good one. The club's Summer Walks are also listed so why not meet members in a relaxed social stroll.
