Beckenham Photographic Society (BPS) encourages the enjoyment of photography and better image making through talks, demonstrations and competitions, as it has done since its beginnings in 1921. We are forward looking, embracing developments in photographic styles and technology, while maintaining respect for and appreciation of traditional techniques.

The society is a friendly place where new members can develop their photographic interests through a variety of weekly activities described in our programme. We encourage new members to participate in all aspects of the club’s activities, including competitions and events throughout the year.

The Nature Group organises field trips throughout the year and meet on a regular basis to discuss images and photographic techniques.

We also organise Summer outings in various settings and mini photographic trips according to members’ interest and demand. These are great opportunities for members to share know-how and to develop their photographic eye, whilst getting to know each other in varied surroundings.
