Shirley Photographic Society

Whether you are an experienced photographer or an enthusiastic beginner you are welcome to visit this friendly club to try a few sessions before joining.

The Shirley Photographic society was founded on 12th April 1937. It was then known as the Photographic Section of the Shirley Social and Library Circle. Following the outbreak of the Second World War, in 1939, the society continued to function albeit within the restriction of wartime measures. After 1945, when the situation began to normalise, the society ceased being a section of the Shirley Circle on 21st April 1947 and became a separate entity devoted solely to photography. It was then necessary to change its title and so became the Shirley Photographic Society.
