About Satellite Groups

Small, informal groups meet around once a month. The structure, content, times, dates and frequency of meetings are all determined independently by each group for itself. Meetings may include guest presenters, reviews, exhibition planning, anything of interest to the group, but the core is supportive critique.

Topic Groups

To better accommodate the interests of members, LIP encourages the formation of satellite groups based on specific photographic genres, approaches or areas of concern. To set up a topic-focused group, please contact our satellite group co-ordinator to discuss your ideas and find out how to start a new group. At present there is just one such group but we would welcome more.

Local Groups

Local groups are broadly generalist in outlook but vary in character and emphasis. LIP members may well attend several groups or cross London to attend the one that best suits them.

When joining LIP there is no need to choose the satellite group nearest home or work; the groups vary widely in character so we advise trying more than one to see which best suits you. Before attending for the first time we advise making contact with the group leader. Links to each group are given on this page.

New Satellite Groups

We hope to increase the number of satellite groups both to accommodate growing membership and to cater for a wide range of interests and approaches. Any member wanting to start a new group whether generalist or topic-based (see Active Satellite Groups opposite) should first discuss with a current group leader and then contact either:the membership secretary membership@londonphotography.org.uk or the satellite co-ordinator Jan Cylwik
