About Axminster Photography Group

Founded in 1987 with just six members, the Axminster Photography Group began life as ‘The Thomas Whitty Camera Club’, so named after the man who began the manufacture of carpets in Axminster and also the name of the building in which the members first held their meetings.

Around the beginning of the millennium, the club moved to new premises that offered better facilities and coincided with a new chairman, John Marriage who took the club in a new direction. At this time almost all competitions were abandoned and the emphasis changed to the ethos the club adheres to today – that of cooperation, collaboration and a greater emphasis on creative photography, the results of which the club began to exhibit at local venues. The membership increased as interest and motivation improved whilst the name changed to Axminster Photography Group emphasising the image rather than the camera.
