From the Chairman                                                                            

No matter how you have arrived here, I wish you a warm welcome to our website.

Bromsgrove Photographic Society is a friendly group of enthusiastic amateur photographers. Don’t be put off thinking that everybody is an expert, far from it. We have a wide range of experience and expertise within the club. Members enjoy most forms of photography, nature, portrait and studio work, landscape and still life. Most members use digital cameras of one type or another, compacts, compact system cameras and DSLRs. Use of camera phones is growing and there is still a hard core of mostly black and white specialists that still use film.

It is a fact of modern life that photography has become an integral part of our lives. Whether you take pictures for your own interest or to share with your family or friends on a social web site, we all like to produce the best we can and as a result derive a lot of pleasure from our pictures.

I would like to extend an invitation to you to come along to one of our meetings on a Tuesday evening. You will find the remaining current Winter 2014/15 programme on one of the pages on this site. The lectures, competition nights and practical studio sessions are interesting, enjoyable and we are informal and friendly. We have a program of instructional sessions planned and you should find tips on how to improve your own photography from all sessions.

If it’s the outdoors you are interested in, then we will have a Summer 2015 programme where members get out and about as a group, mainly at weekends or the lighter evenings. You are also welcome to join in these. We will publish our Summer programme on this site as soon as possible.

If all this sounds like what you were looking for then why not come along and visit us one evening and sample what we have to offer. I look forward to meeting you.
