Welcome to the Guildford u3a Photography Group

Welcome to our Website

The Guildford u3a Photography Group is always pleased to welcome new members. Any U3A member interested in improving their photography no matter what level is very welcome to join us, just use the contact link to get in touch with us. Our members use a wide range of equipment from smartphones and compact cameras through to our enthusiasts with  ‘Bridge’ and DSLR’s and you will always find members willing to share their expertise.

We meet on the 2nd Wednesday of each month, 14:00 – 16:00hrs at Burpham Village Hall, Burpham Lane, Guildford GU4 7LN, which has good projection facilities and nearby parking.

We are part of Guildford u3a, an educational self-help organisation for the retired or semi-retired that draws on the wealth of knowledge and experience of its members to set up study, common interest groups and recreational activities.

As well as our regular monthly meetings we run a variety of photoshoots throughout the year. There is also an annual ‘photo exchange’ with the u3a Rotorua photo-group in New Zealand, see the Rotorua pages for further information.

Our members reflect a wide range of photographic skills from beginners all the way to expert amateur photographers who are always pleased to provide guidance, coaching and technical expertise in a friendly and relaxed setting. The monthly meetings are designed to offer tuition and practical hints, as well as a chance for members to share their ‘work’ and some of our members are willing to offer 1-2-1 sessions. Our monthly photoshoots enable members to ‘head out’, and with support practice their skills and learn from each other.

By reviewing our photographs, we discuss and consider technical, composition and the aesthetic qualities of our work.

Whatever your camera, we will aim to help you take better photographs by exploring the creative thinking process, practical techniques and reviewing the photographs we take.
