About Beacon PC:​

We’re a friendly club that has grown in strength & numbers. We have regular events, meeting every 2 weeks. If we’re not at the Wardens Social Club in Skelmersdale, we’re out & about at different locations taking pictures.

We’ve had events that cover portraits, long exposure, wirewool, landscapes, product & Photoshop to name but a few. We’re open to new ideas & are always willing to learn & teach members.

If this sounds like a club you want to belong to, get in touch today.
