Welcome to Royal Holloway's Photography Society! We aim to teach everyone from absolute beginner to experienced photographers on how to take photos to be proud of whilst having fun.

We are an award winning society, having won two awards at last years Socs Ball, and a runner up award for Most Improved Society nationally! We take great pride in these achievements and are determined to provide even more for the society this year as a result. 

Weekly practical sessions are held in Windsor 1-03 every Tuesday between 7PM and 9PM which allows you to get creative with your camera and try out different techniques/styles of photography. We also have a selection of theory sessions on a Wednesday, also in Windsor 1-03, so that you can learn more behind the technical side of photograph and different editing processes.

You can also contact us with a portfolio to join the Events Team where you can get paid work across campus for your photography!
