About us

Welcome to Southgate Photographic Society - have a look at our programme, our competitions and our work. We meet on Tuesdays for 10 months each year in the Howley Hall at St Pauls Church, Winchmore Hill between 8pm and 10pm. Feel free to drop in to a meeting and have a cup of tea - see if a Photography club is for you. We have about 50 Full members and a number of Associate and Country members, and more are always welcome. Annual membership is £50, starting from April each year.

For more information email: info@southgatephoto.org.uk


We hold 10 intra-club competitions each year divided between Prints and Projected Images, with external judges. These are a great way to get discerning feedback on your work. The programme also features a variety of illustrated talks from visiting lecturers, workshops and discussion evenings. We compete in interclub competitions and submit entries to the annual exhibition of our parent association, the East Anglian Federation of the PAGB. Founded in 1938 to "promote knowledge of the Art and Science of Photography" and to "encourage the fellowship and recreation of its members", we also like to socialise, and the programme has a number of social outings, usually in the summer or before Christmas. 

The high point of the year is an annual exhibition  in early August at the Bourne Methodist Church Hall near Southgate Underground Station.  Our best prints are on display and each evening there is a programme of projected images and audiovisual work. 

Keep an eye on our News page for updates, and see you at a club night soon !
