Welcome to Ryde Imaging Group

Focus is an established club of amateur photographers who meet twice a month in the winter and several times during the summer for outdoor photo walks and studio shoots. Over the winter months we hold monthly inter-club competitions and feature digital photography talks or demonstrations on alternate club evenings. We exhibit a gallery of our favourite images locally each year. Focus competes with other Isle of Wight camera clubs in local club competitions during the year, sometimes acting as hosts.

Our History

Back in the 1980’s, when film was the only popular recording media, the Ryde Photographic Club was formed. A group of three or four would meet at the local photographic shop when the idea was born to start a photographic club.

For want of another premises the first meeting was held at the Partlands Avenue orthopaedic centre, one of the founder members was the manager of the clinic there and meetings were held with members sitting on the various benches and equipment bits that were used to treat patients.
