The Southern Photographic Society was set up in the 1970's by Mike Goldie and friends to cater for Photographers in the South of the Isle of Man, in 2005 a Digital branch was also formed along with this web site.

Although we are based in the South of the Island, anyone from any part of the Island (or else where) is most welcome to join the society.
