Established in 1955, Paisley Colour Photographic Club is one of the leading photography clubs in Scotland. The club has an active, friendly and inclusive membership which caters for all levels of experience, from those just beginning to explore the world of photography to established photographers looking to develop their craft. The club is affiliated to the Scottish Photographic Federation (SPF)


We meet weekly on a Thursday between September and April, usually at Renfrew Bowling Club but occasionally online using Zoom. One of the very few silver linings to the last couple of years has been the emergence of online meetings and the access to speakers from far and wide. In the off season the Club also organises a variety of informal and programmed events.


The ‘Programme’ page outlines the current programme of events and locations. The in-season syllabus comprises a number of competitions, internal and external speakers as well as workshops and teach-ins. Each of the events are intended to spark new ideas or provide feedback and guidance to our photographers.


New members and visitors are always welcome, and enquiries can be made on the ‘Contact’ page. Feel free to have a look at the galleries, competition results and information on the website and please get in contact if you’d like to learn more.
