WebA,D & D Photographic Society
The Society was formed in July 2006 by a group of people who were seeking a new kind of camera club, where the main focus was not on photographic competition. The ethos of the Society is to provide a forum for like-minded photographers to meet in a non-competitive environment, regardless of their technical ability or equipment, where experience and knowledge may be shared and developed through the activities of the Society. The Society’s activities include photographic presentations by outside speakers, workshops by its own members, photographic visits to outside locations, an annual photographic exhibition and our own social events. Please visit the Gallery to see some of our members’ photographs. We are a relatively small society, whose members live in the local area around Adderbury and Deddington.  If you are interested in joining us, then please call the Secretary or just come to one of our meetings. Everyone is welcome.
