About Us

Welcome to TPS!

TPS  is a friendly and informal club with around 70 members, based in the quiet village of Godstone in Surrey. We aim to help members expand and improve their photographic skills by sharing skills, ideas and inspiration.

We host weekly meetings in Godstone on Thursdays at 8pm during our September to June season.

The TPS programme of events includes inspiring talks by distinguished photographers, expert tutorials and hands-on demo sessions, and free-to-enter internal competitions for Prints and PDIs (Projected Digital Images).  We also host trips called ‘Out and Abouts’ to give our members access to interesting places to take photos and develop new skills.

TPS is a member of  Surrey Photographic Association and is affiliated to the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain. As part of this, we help showcase member’s photos in friendly, external competitions with other local clubs and in the Surrey Photographic Association’s Inter-Club Competitions.

COVID-19 Adjustments: We continue to operate while COVID constraints remain in place, but have had to make some changes to our normal arrangements to help keep our members safe.  Many of our events are, for the time being, taking place online using Zoom.  We continue to organise small group photography trips and visits while observing social distancing requirements.

We are always delighted to welcome new members who have an interest in photography, whether they are complete beginners or experienced snappers. No specialist equipment is needed, just something that can take a photo, whether that’s a camera or a smartphone.

Our membership number is capped at 75 to help maintain a friendly, welcoming environment for all. We operate a waiting list for new member enquiries when no spaces are available.
