About Wolverhampton Photographic Society
Founded in 1888 WPS is a lively society with over 80 members. All areas of photography are covered
from archival photography through to digital imaging. In 2013 we will be celebrating our 125th
anniversary - culminating with a major exhibition at
Wolverhampton Art Gallery.
We like to think of ourselves as a friendly
place to learn about photography and its various techniques as well as a place to enjoy it as
a hobby. All photographic abilities are catered for ranging from novice to expert.
We have frequent photographic outings, competitions and have recently
been holding an annual “spectacular" where we host a famous photographer at a local theatre.
Andy Rouse, Charlie Waite, Chris Packham and Tom
Mackie are some of our recent celebrity lecturers.
Our competitions cover print, projected digital images and AVs, so
whatever your taste or abilities, you can take part! We participate in a number of competitions
with other local photographic clubs and also national competitions - and during the past two years
have racked up many successes, thereby becoming one of the top clubs in the Midlands
We are affiliated to the PAGB and the MCPF. Furthermore, we also offer
help, advice, support and encouragement to any member wishing to obtain a distinction with the
Royal Photographic Society.
WPS take pride in being able to offer something for everyone
interested in photography. Whether you are the casual photographer, who may just want to take
better holiday snaps, through to the more serious amateur who wants to create some really
spectacular images, we can help you achieve your goals.
