Benefits of Membership:

  • Friendly club atmosphere.

  • Open all year round.

  • Great facilities.

  • Help with your photo hobby.

  • Lots of events and activities.


Members Discount Shop: Lots of the items in our shop, photo paper, Sigma® Lenses etc, are only available to our members. In fact the cost of membership for many members is outweighed by the savings they can make. See Members Benefits below.


New Members: You should use the form below to apply for membership of Smethwick Photographic Society. On receipt of your application, and payment of the relevant membership fee, you will be notified by email when it is available to collect at the club room. You will receive a discount if applying part way through the year and your full annual subscription will then become due on 1st January each year. Please see the discount codes in the left hand side bar next to the application form. You can add the code at the payment checkout where your discount will be applied.

We hope to see you to our club soon and can assure you of a warm and friendly welcome. If you require any further information before making your decision please Contact Us
