The St Ives Photographic Club is an active and friendly club with indoor meetings held at the St Ives Free Church on Tuesday evenings, meeting at 7:30pm for an 8pm start, from September to April together with an active summer programme of outdoor events.

The club’s objective is to provide an interesting and active programme of photographic based events throughout the year for the benefit of its members and to welcome new members of all levels.

The St Ives Photographic Club is a membership based club organisation operated entirely by volunteers. Management of the club is carried out by a combination of its committee members and volunteers. We aim to run the Club as efficiently as possible and welcome suggestions on improvements from our members.


Membership normally costs just £38 per year and a reduced rate of £10 for students. Due to the current situation the club is offering a discounted price for full membership of only £20 for the 2020-2021 season. The club also has the option of E-membership at a reduced rate of £10 per year for members who cannot attend the club on a regular basis. E-membership allows members access to the newsletter; member’s area of the Website and Facebook; free entry to the first winter meeting of the year and entrance to the James Bunn lecture. Additional meetings are at a reduced guest fee of £2 per meeting. E-members are welcome to club social events at guest rates but are NOT allowed to enter club competitions.

If you are ready to sign up, you can become a member any of the following ways:
