The Society

Newark & District Photographic Society has existed to promote and provide support for Amateur Photography in and around Newark-on-Trent, Nottinghamshire, England since 1938.

A keen group of photographers, we meet weekly between September and April to hear guest speakers talk on their photographic techniques & experiences, and to receive constructive criticism of our own work.

This website was created to allow parties interested in photography both locally and further afield to see what we do. You will find contact details along with our current programme, upcoming competitions, and several galleries of members' work.

Latest News

Open Day • Newark Market • Saturday the 12th October 2013


The Society Open Day is looking to promote greater public awareness of the activities the Society undertakes. Anyone interested in Photography is welcome to bring their cameras along and chat to N&DPS Members. We offer a cheaper first year subscription to those wishing to join or smaller visitor rates for those who want to test the water first.

Details of events can be found on the Society website. In addition we have extra Focus Group activities which concentrate on Studio Lighting, Natural History and Monochrome.

The Society is involved with the Newark Civil War Museum project which involves taking photographs of local villages and comparing with old historic photographs and all members of N&DPS are encouraged to take part.

The Stall will also have copies for sale of the Newark Hospital League of Friends Calendar for 2014. The calendar contains wonderful photographs of Newark taken by N&DPS members, with all proceeds going to the NHLOF charity.

The event will be held at the Millennium Suite, Richard Herrod Centre, Foxhill Road, Carlton, Nottingham, NG4 1RL.

Photoshop Photography Program UK Pricing


Photoshop Photography Program pricing confirmed: $9.99 + TAX per month in the US, £7.14 +VAT (£8.57) in the UK.

Photoshop Photography Program and Existing Photoshop CC users


Some blogs are stating that "Photoshop CC single-app members will be automatically transitioned" to the new Photoshop Photography Program but this isn't quite true.

To get to the bottom of this you have to look at the US version of the CC Program FAQ as the UK version hasn't been updated yet, where it states:

"Existing Creative Cloud members who wish to transition to this offer must own a previous version of Photoshop or Photoshop Extended, version CS3 or later (CS3.x, CS4, CS5.x, or CS6).

"If you meet this qualification, how you transition will depend on the type of membership you have:

"Photoshop CC single-app members will be automatically transitioned to this new program, with its additional benefits and lower ongoing price.

"Creative Cloud complete members should contact Adobe Customer Service to discuss transitioning to this new offer."

Photoshop Photography Program


Special pricing announced for existing Photoshop owners (CS3 and later) moving to Photoshop CC and Lightroom (currently Lightroom 5) provided they make the switch this year (http://blogs.adobe.com/creativelayer/introducing-the-photoshop-photography-program/).

US pricing is $9.99/month with no indication yet of UK pricing but given how their other UK prices stack up against their UK counterparts it wouldn't be unreasonable to expect around £9.00–10.00/month.

This isn't an introductory price, to quote Adobe: "This is the ongoing price for anyone who signs up by December 31, 2013. So if you sign up in October 2013, then when you renew in October 2014, the price will still be $9.99 per month. We do not currently have any intention of raising this price."
