Lens is Loughborough’s official student photography group, providing an outlet for amateur photographers here at Loughborough. Our range of training courses, engaging shoots and diverse events, along with our professional equipment and facilities, will help you create stunning images whether you’re an expert or an absolute beginner!

We offer a chance to gain real-life photography experience through events, sport, nights, and creative photography and also offer chances to get involved in design, illustration, and photo-marketing alongside Label. To get involved, come and visit us in our office upstairs in the Students' Union, or join our volunteers group!

Training with Lens Photography

To get involved with Lens, and use our equipment, we need to make sure that our volunteers can tell their Aperture from their ISO! This is where our training sessions come in! Each week, we'll be hosting a series of training sessions across a variety of skills and settings, to help you become a more proficient photographer!
