The Society was founded in 1955, “to encourage and advance all aspects of still photography”.
In 1960, Woking Photographic Society was one of the prime movers in the formation of the Surrey Photographic Federation, now the Surrey Photographic Association (SPA). The Society is affiliated to the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain (PAGB) through its membership of the SPA.
Since its formation, the Society has seen many changes of photographic styles and techniques, most recently the rapid rise of digital capture and manipulation of images.
In 2008, the Society received a grant from the National Lottery under the Awards for All programme. This allowed us to purchase equipment for high quality digital projection of images.
Over the years, we have built up a substantial archive of prints, which illustrate changing approaches to photography. We plan to make digital copies of a selection from this archive and will display them on the website in the future.
