The club is one of the oldest groups of its kind in the country and last year marked its 150th anniversary.

To mark the occasion society president Mike Smith presented an engraved silver teaspoon to Lord Mayor of Sheffield Coun Peter Rippon at the opening day of the exhibition.

The society’s members include a few professionals and semi-professionals and many enthusiastic and talented amateurs.

They range in age from photographers in their 20s up to those in their 80s, all with diverse styles.

As well as its weekly meetings at St Peter’s Church Hall in Greenhill, the group has outings and regular exhibitions.

Mike said: “We are a large but friendly club and welcome guests as well as new members.

“Our programme includes evenings of guest lectures, presentations by members and members’ print and digital competitions.

“We have a monthly online competition via our forum and we have recently started a series of critique group evenings to share ideas and experience.

“We like to try new ideas to ensure we can share experience among all our membership.”

The exhibition will run until this Sunday, April 26.

Members will be on hand during lunchtime each day, from midday to 2pm, and all day on Saturday and Sunday, to answer queries and speak to visitors. Admission is free.
