Welcome

In light of the exceptionally difficult circumstances we are all currently facing, and with great sadness, we have decided to end our Society’s season early. We normally end our season in May. However, for the safety of our membership we have ended the season with immediate effect (20th March) and will reconvene with our new season in September as usual. If you wish to contact us please use the email address: enquiries@southbirminghamphotographicsociety.co.uk

We welcome anyone with an interest in photography whatever their area of interest and expertise. A simple compact camera or the latest DSLR, it doesn’t matter what your level is. We don’t ask you to pay a membership fee for your first couple of visits to us.

We are a small friendly club that meet at 7.30 pm on Friday evenings from September to April at The Friends Meeting House on the corner of Hamlet Road/Stratford Road in Hall Green, Birmingham B28 9BG. At these meetings we have external speakers on a variety of photographic topics, internal competitions and inter-club competitions, critique evenings, practical sessions and presentations from members. We are also affiliated to the PAGB and MCPF.  Additionally, we are an active member of the British Photographic Exhibitions (BPE) organisation and run an annual exhibition that attracts entries from all over the UK. Further details of our exhibition can be found on the Image 20 Exhibition page.

Once a month (on the first Wednesday) we meet for an informal practical evening. The topics for discussion can include the use of photographic software, mounting of prints, understanding your camera, how to make an audio visual show, and other topics requested by members. There is a small nominal charge for these evenings.
