CREWE PS – Born 1947

12 November 2017 marked the 70th anniversary of Crewe Photographic society. A short history of the society by Tom Seaton (Secretary 1992-2016) can be read here. A photobook of the work of present members is in preparation. We wish we could say that we have an exhibition, but Crewe lacks a central exhibition space. If you have, or know of, an exhibition area in Crewe (for, perhaps 70 framed prints) please email us.

If you enjoy good imaging, talking photography, or looking for inspiration for your work – why not come along to the Lifestyle Centre on any Thursday evening. 

You will get an idea of the range of work by looking at our rolling gallery


There are more galleries available by clicking the tab above, but they feature winning images predominately. Try looking at our Flickr site or Forum for a more general view.

Mark Luscombe-Whyte – Collodion process prints –  See also our Forum entry
Niall McDiarmid

Niall’s engaging street portraits of people he meets on his travels round Britain are not just a social record. He brings great skill into composing these shots; colour harmony especially is astonishing. His personable approach to his subjects, who he does not know, is part of his secret, not just in getting their cooperation but in achieving just that right look. His work is bound for classic status. Website


 Here is a selection of photographs from our 2016 Season
