Welcome to Smethwick Photographic Society.

We are one of the UK’s largest camera clubs based in Smethwick, Birmingham and our membership ranges from retired pros and keen amateurs to enthusiasts and novices. Based at the Old Schoolhouse in Oldbury, we offer a welcoming base across a diverse mix of people with the shared passion for photography. Thursday is our weekly club night, and we run several special interest groups. In addition, we run and host various national and international competitions.

We are looking forward to meeting you.
