Imperial College Photographic Society

Buy membership


We have a fully stocked darkroom with paper, chemicals and all the necessary equipment to develop and print. We also run tutorials for those who want to learn how to develop film and print. More information is available on the darkroom section of the website. There is also a dedicated Facebook group, where you can discuss anything darkroom related.


We are a well-equipped society, and we allow all our members to borrow our many cameras, lenses, flashes, lighting, tripods and other equipment. We also have access to a studio next to the darkroom, along with backdrops and strobe studio lighting.

Visit the equipment page to browse the list, and fill in the borrowing request form if you want to borrow anything. We will get back to you with availability and arrange a time to pick up the equipment

Event photography

For other clubs and societies, we offer a range of services depending on what you want. Please see the events page for a gallery of some of our event photography work. If you want photos taken of an event, or of your club, or of anything for that matter, just fill in the request form on the events page and we will get back to you to discuss details.


You can join PhotoSoc by going to the Union website and buying membership, which costs £6. You can also buy a darkroom card for £10 which will allow you access to our darkroom and all its equipment.


Photosoc runs several exhibitions each year, including the Annual Photosoc Exhibition and ARTSFEST collaborative exhibitions.

For information in the latest exhibitions, take a look at the Exhibitions section. There is also an online gallery that showcases some of the photographs taken by members past and present.

Thanks to large-format print supplier Display Wizard for providing free banner stands for our exhibitions and freshers’ fair stall.
