Welcome to Eastbourne Photographic Society

Join Eastbourne camera club – we guarantee you a warm welcome!

Due to Covid-19 EPS had to make major changes to how we ran our meetings, in order to survive and thrive. We were one of the first camera clubs to react to the situation early in 2020 and to decide on a definite strategy. This enabled us to communicate quickly and clearly with our members and hold 6 Zoom meetings, even before our 2020/21 season began. After this great start with the new technology, we have been able to enjoy two full seasons of the best Speakers and Judges available, from throughout the UK.

For the 2022-2023 season, we are delighted to be returning fully to our comfortable venue at Eastbourne & District Indoor Bowls Club. We have an exciting programme of competitions, judges and speakers booked – with the vast majority planning to attend ‘in person’. There are just a few (more distant) speakers connecting via Zoom –  onto the big screen – so do come along and enjoy getting together with like-minded camera enthusiasts!

We do plan to continue with a limited Zoom offering – to enable those not physically able to join us to stay connected with the club.

Our Programme of Workshops will continue – details to follow – including Print Preparation, Resizing PDIs, Camera Controls, using Lightroom and Photoshop and much else.
There will, once again, be Special Interest Groups this season – details to follow.

Club Nights

Our season runs between 6th September 2022 and 2nd May 2023 with the main weekly club nights held at 7:30pm – 10.00pm on Tuesday evenings.

In addition to the Main Meetings there are also frequent Workshops and Special Interest Groups, covering a host of photographic topics, held at 7:30pm – 10.00pm on Thursday evenings.

All ‘physical’ meetings are held at:
The Eastbourne & District Indoor Bowls Club, 5 Hampden Park Drive, Eastbourne BN22 9QR

The EPS committee are keen to ensure that the ‘centre of gravity’ for our meetings will return to the EDIBA club house for the 2022-2023 season – however, there will continue to be a limited Zoom offering for those not physically able to attend. All our meetings should provide an enjoyable, informative opportunity to see wonderful images described and explained by experts in their field…
