North Berwick Photographic Society meets in the Abbey Church Hall in Church Road, North Berwick, East Lothian. Meetings are every second Thursday from September to April. We also have a varied range of club outings from May to September.

"Rail Adventure in the Balkans", a talk by club member Ian Goodall, told the story, through over 400 photos, of Ian and his wife Sheila's adventure last summer by rail through the Balkans. With their 30-day interrail ticket and the help of Booking.com to reserve accommodation in advance they visited every Balkan country apart from Kosovo and Albania. Highlights included the new (relaunched) sleeper train to Istanbul (destination of the original Orient Express the route of which they followed), the railway journey through Montenegro and the rebuilt bridge in Mostar. Only 'low' moment was Ian being robbed on the metro in Athens.

For our fourth meeting we invited Midlothian Camera Club to a match-an-image. Judge Stephen Lipton gave North Berwick the result we deserved, making amends for our narrow defeat last year. Away for our annual Haddington Camera Club meeting, we had a 20-images-each competition on the subject of "Water", judged by Charles Summers. For the second time in a week we enjoyed a victory against an external club.

Recently we visited Beeslack Penicuik Camera Club for a Match-an-Image competition which North Berwick won by 1 point.
