Kendal Photography Club was formed in 1910 as Kendal Photographic Society. By 1927 the Club was a member of the Lancashire and Cheshire Photographic Union (L&CPU) and remains so today. It is also affiliated to the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain (PAGB).

We are a relaxed Club of amateur photography enthusiasts with members of various ages, experience and photographic styles. Our weekly meetings contain a mixture of visiting speakers giving presentations on different aspects of photography, talks by our own members, software demonstrations, tutorials and monthly ‘Members Evening’ competitions. The competitions aren’t compulsory, but give members the opportunity to measure their work against others and, most importantly, receive valuable constructive critique which they can hopefully use to improve their images. Further information on competitions can be found in the Members Only section of our website.

The club also participates in ‘battles’ with other photo clubs in the South Lakes region which are fun evenings giving us the opportunity to meet up with other amateur photographers in our area. These battles culminate each season with the ‘South Lakes Knock Out’ competition involving several different clubs from throughout the region.

We’re a friendly Club and welcome new members. It can be daunting to join a group where you don’t know anyone but we were all new once too, so come along and give us a try! We look forward to seeing you.
