PhotoSoc is lucky enough to have a darkroom on Campus that is free to use for all PhotoSoc members. It’s located on the second floor of the SUHQ. All the equipment and chemicals you need are there already and available for you to use. If you have any queries, don’t hesitate to message the Facebook page.
Every week we offer training sessions for all our members. We hope the topics we cover in these training sessions will suit everyone, from beginners to experienced photographers. As well as training, we also have some practical sessions which allow you to put what has been taught in the training sessions into practice. In the past we’ve had training sessions on night photography, followed by a practical session which involved painting with light. If you have any requests for training sessions, please message the Facebook page.
Tours, trips and socials
PhotoSoc offers a variety of opportunities to take some pictures further afield! In the past we have made trips to Copenhagen, Stratford-Upon-Avon and Oxford, and We are looking to do a trip to London soon. As far as socials go we hope to be as inclusive as possible, organising pub crawls, meals on and off campus, and much much more, so there’s something for everyone!
Another useful aspect of PhotoSoc is the large range of equipment we have available to hire. The society owns several DSLRs (Both Canon and Nikon) as well as lenses, tripods, flashguns, filters and a studio kit. This is all available to our members free of charge. In order to borrow just message the Facebook page. Our Equipment Manager Ruhi is willing to answer any questions you have on how to use the equipment, or give advice on what equipment you need to take the type of photo you want, so just email him or ask when you’re collecting the equipment.
If you have any questions or suggestions, please don’t hesitate to email our President, Georgy, or our secretary, Serena.
