Who we are

Photosoc is the photographic society of the University of Edinburgh.  We are currently the oldest university photographic society in the UK. Photosoc welcomes students and non-students, digital and film lovers, complete beginners and keen amateurs.

Our activities

At Photosoc we try our best to cater for members of all skill levels. Our meetings range from beginner tutorials, to more advanced workshops on topics such as lighting and Photoshop. Throughout our events, we try to cover as many different styles of photography over the year, ranging from portraiture to light-painting. If you have any suggestions for topics you would like to see covered at Photosoc, let us know!

At Photosoc, we realise the importance of putting the skills learnt in our weekly meetings into practice, and so, as well as talks and tutorials, there are plenty of opportunities to take photos – such as on our studio workshops, long exposure workshops or just casual walks around Edinbrugh.

Competitions and Exhibitions

Twice a year, Photosoc runs a competition for its members. The winners are decided by Photosoc members; the winning photographs from each theme win prizes, and these photographs, along with the best of the rest will be exhibited in a chosen venue in Edinburgh. More information on the competition will be released during each semester via the Newsletter and on our Social media.
