SERIOUS ABOUT PHOTOGRAPHY. PASSIONATE ABOUT PICTURES
Welcome to our 2019 – 20 season.
Since 1950 the Society has always striven to keep up-to-date and relevant, making it a home for those with an interest in – or passion for – creating or recording imagery through photography. Regardless of equipment, knowledge or experience, whether a total beginner or master of the art, all are welcome to share the enjoyment of our art and pastime.
Bromsgrove Photographic Society (BPS) is recognised as one of the top clubs in the region. Our members come from a wide range of backgrounds – and just as wide a range of photographic interests and abilities. We welcome members who look upon our Society as a social experience to be shared with people of like interests, just as much as members who compete in competitions on a regular basis. We have many members (including many of our newer members) achieving recognition through achieving photographic awards and distinctions, or competing in national and international competitions.
Our season concentrates on three core activities:
- Some of the best photographers around share their work and explain their techniques and back stories to inspire us all.
- Our regular monthly competitions allow us to show our images and get critique from experienced judges which helps us to improve our photography whatever our level of experience.
- Practical and studio evenings allow members to learn and experiment with photographic and editing techniques, as well as the opportunity to work with models
and professional studio lighting for better portraiture and still life images.
We have a good blend of experience within our club with many of the more experienced members ready to offer guidance and advice. There is also a strong social aspect with friendliness, good humour and respect for all.
Finally, I would like to thank the committee for their commitment and the time that they devote to our society. Welcome to our new season.
