SPS NOW CLOSED DUE TO COVID-19
In line with the latest government advice, the club HOUSE will remain closed for the foreseeable future. We must all consider the health and well being of our members and friends.
Please make sure you check for further messages on this subject.
WE HAVE DESIGNED AN ALTERNATIVE ONLINE PROGRAMME THAT WILL HELP US TO KEEP IN TOUCH WITH, AND SERVE, OUR MEMBERS DURING THIS DIFFICULT TIME. MORE INFORMATION REGARDING THIS HAS BEEN NOTIFIED TO MEMBERS VIA THE SPS EMAIL SERVICE.
We have set up a FUNDRAISER to cover building expenses which cannot be stopped and appeal to all members and friends to contribute.
To COVER the cost of maintainING the building during CLOSURE, members are invited to pay their weekly attendance charge via the PAYPAL BUTTON below. Other donations, WHICH WILL BE GRATEFULLY RECEIVED, to help maintain the building can also be paid using this BUTTON.

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.
Although our club room is now closed for normal club events we WILL be having the Monthly Competitions and these will be judged remotely. The results will be posted on this website in the usual way. I addition we will also look to create a page which will show ALL the entered images. Print competitions are likely to be judged on the basis of the submitted PDI images but this is yet to be confirmed
Gallery now showing: Awarded images in 3rd Monthly PDI Competition. The images’ order is randomised.
