OK it might not look that different but underneath its a lot different. We have loads of new things coming soon and if their s anything you would like to see just email me.

Hastings and Ore Photographic Club provides a friendly, inclusive environment for those who wish to talk, see, learn and practice photography.

We meet at St Leonards Methodist Church, Upper Park Road, St. Leonards-on-Sea, TN37 6SJ at 7:30pm for a 7:45pm start every other Tuesday from September to May. Check the Programme for the current agenda where you will also find information about the workshops, tutorials and summer outings that have been organised for this season.

As well as workshops and tutorials, to encourage full engagement with photography, the club holds several print and digital image competitions each season with external judges whose commentary can be instrumental in improving skills for beginners and the more experienced alike. The dates of all competitions are in the Programme and the conditions of entry are in the Competition Rules.

Despite the necessity for Club Rules, our aims and objectives are to provide facilities for members to exchange views and ideas in black and white, colour and digital photography in an informal atmosphere and to provide members with facilities for the advancement of the art of photography in a practical, theoretical and competitive manner.

For a sneak peak at what we have been up  to recently, check out the News page which members are encouraged to contribute to with articles such as information about a successful image they made, an event preview/review, accounts of club activities….

Please feel free to enjoy a variety of club images, some of which achieved varied success in the Kent and Sussex County Competitions this year:

After Committee meetings on zoom it seems that the only way for the club to continue until restrictions are lifted.

With this in mind, we ask for an initial subscription payment of £20 per person if you are able to join the Zoom meetings, [you are welcome to contribute more!!]
If you are non-zoomers, a £5 subscription payment will cover the cost of posting newsletters, which will keep you up to date with club events, including outings etc and invites to occasional zoom meetings.
Details will have been sent to members from the year 2019/2020.
Details of meetings will be posted on the website and on our facebook page Here.

My video/camera isn't working.


There is echo in my meeting.


Zoom video tutorials


Hope this helps and we hope to see you Tuesday evenings at 7:30pm in the next few weeks if you are a member.

A full schedule will be posted soon...

Following the advice of the Government’s Chief Medical Advisor, and given that the enforced lock-down will be in place for possibly, the next 6 months, I have made the sad decision that HOPC will not be meeting again in the foreseeable future – thus cancelling the Print/DPI of the Year competitions.

This means , regrettably, that the 2019/2020 season will be declared null and void, and there will be no AGM until further notice.

Although three DPI competitions have been held, only two Print competitions have taken place. Therefore, it would be unfair to announce possible category winners and, as such, NO awards will be made this year in EITHER media.

In the unlikely possibility of our annual exhibition being held in Priory Meadow, with the author’s permission, I will hold on to the entries handed in for the third Print competition, to be used as exhibits.

If any authors do not wish for their images to be shown, please let me know.

If you were awarded a trophy in any media category last year, please hold on to them until further notice, when we can arrange their safe return to the Club. (Unnecessary journeys etc).

Whilst I understand that this may be an unsatisfactory ending to the season, it is not a decision I have taken lightly, but the safety and well-being of our members is, without doubt, the most important factor.

Thank you for your understanding.

Stay well, stay safe , stay indoors.

Kind regards
