At Wolverhampton Photographic Society we are passionate about
photography, in all its forms. Stunning colour landscapes, moody and atmospheric black and whites,
perfectly captured nature, or out and out creativity, we love it all.
And we love people who love their photography. Whether you’re a
novice or a dab-hand, taking photos of flowers or fog, or just enjoying photography as a hobby,
you’ll be warmly welcomed.
Our weekly meetings are warm and sociable affairs with a friendly
membership and a range of interesting activities such as guest speakers with high quality
presentations of stunning images and our annual Points Series competition (for digital and printed
images) where we compete against each other.
Tutorial evenings cover a range of subjects across the skills and
experience spectrum. There’s always something new to learn and the beauty is that it all
helps us produce better photographs.
Our state of the art digital projector delivers stunning images for
our presentations and our increasingly popular audio visual productions.
We also have club photographic outings. Recent trips included
photoshoots at Himley Dragon Boat Day, Chasewater, Monkey World, Trentham Gardens, Weston Park and
1940s weekends on the Severn Valley railway.
Competition is one of the best ways of measuring our own skills and
abilities, which is why we battle with local clubs and societies in inter-club competitions and
also compete both regionally and nationally.
We’re affiliated to the PAGB (Photo Alliance of Great Britain) and
the MCPF (Midland Counties Photographic Federation) and have very good relationships with several
local radio stations, the Wolverhampton Magazine and Wolverhampton Art Gallery, which is
hosting our 125th Anniversary Exhibition in November 2013 – a mix of the best historical images and
stunning new work.
There’s also help, advice, and encouragement to any member wishing to
obtain a distinction with the Royal Photographic Society.
