Our History

Spratton Photography Group (SPG) was formed in March 2011 by Peter Hunt and it now has some 15 or so members.

The main aim of the group is to help people better understand digital photography.

Meetings are held on the first Monday of each month.  Currently meetings are held via Zoom conference.

Meetings usually start with a competition of members’ images and the programme of events gives a mix of practical, educational and inspirational evenings.
