About BPS

We are Birmingham Photographic Society (also known as BPS).  We are a very friendly, diverse group of people who share a love of photography.  New members, regardless of their level of knowledge, are always welcome to join our ever growing society.

Club nights are held every Wednesday evening between 7:00-9:30PM in Longbridge,  see the Contact Us page for full address and contact details.  Club nights run throughout the year, with a short break in August.  We also organise several day trips throughout the year and a weekend photography break towards the end of summer.

Although we are not a formal teaching group, almost all our club nights are practical in some way with various stations set up for you to photograph – providing hands on experience to learn and progress your photography.  Our members are very friendly and helpful, we also have a core group of very knowledgeable Team Leaders who are always on hand to help.

Have a look over at our Image Showcase page for examples of photos taken by members at various club nights and events.  We cover a vast range of photography topics, whether your interests lie in portrait, landscape, sport, macro, black and white, colour, digital or film we hope you would find something of interest to you at BPS.

Over the past few years we have also been raising money for the Birmingham Children’s Hospital and on Wednesday 3rd three of our members dropped a cheque off for over £1,000.  Huge well done and thank you to all our members, especially Nathan and Martin, for making this happen.
