Welcome to Leicester Forest Photographic Society (LFPS)
Whether you are new to photography, or want to extend your skills, you will find plenty to interest and stimulate you at Leicestershire's premier photographic club. We pride ourselves in having members of all abilities who benefit greatly from the wide range of activities we organise. We have a comprehensive programme of lectures and competitions together with a well-equipped studio group. We also organise members support evenings to help members improve their photographic techniques. Modern smartphones, tablets and compact cameras can now take high quality photos, so you do not need to have a camera with interchangeable lenses to join in and participate. Our programme of main club activities runs from September to May.

Annual Exhibition in August
From Monday 12th to Sunday 18th August 2024, we are holding an exhibition at Bishop Street Methodist Church. Come to see our members' images and meet some of our members. Entry is free and there is a cafe in the church.
