History of the Club
MMPS History Melton Mowbray Photographic Society has been in existence since 1946. In 2021 we celebrated 75 years as a photography club.
Starting out the club has always embraced the current photography trends of the day which continues to this day. Moving through different types of film photography the club eventually transitioned to Digital photography. In more recent years we have continued to keep up with new technologies and have even hosted speakers and practical evenings about Smart Phone photography.
Since early days and the introduction of “Digital” Photography has changed photography almost beyond recognition and has changed the boundaries and possibilities. We also believe it has changed the behaviour and habits of many clubs. However we must not forget that the same basic rules still apply to good photography and many of the past basic principles are still used at the club today.
Since its time in existence the club has been fortunate enough to have had a number of very good photographers through the years which continues to
We hope that as photography changes the MMPS will continue to change and modernise for many more years to come.
