Thank you for visiting our website.

Torbay Photographic Society was established in 1903 to stimulate interest in all aspects of photography.

To that end, the club has evolved a wide-ranging programme of activities that appeals to photographers of all levels of ability. We run a range of tutorial sessions, covering all aspects of photography and that is supported by lectures and illustrated talks by acknowledged experts.

The Society also organise and take part in competitions, both within the club, between clubs and extending into the wider photographic community and these run throughout our season. Selected results from these competitions are published by year under the Competitions menu and the winning images from our latest competition are displayed above (click on the slideshow to go to the results section they come from).
