Smethwick Photographic Society is one of the UK's largest and most successful photographic clubs situated in the heart of the West Midlands.

We have our own premises at The Old School House, where, in our air-conditioned theatre, where over 200 members currently enjoy our facilities and new members are always welcome at what is credited to be one of the friendliest photo clubs in the country.

The Old School House is the chosen venue for many Local, Regional, National and International exhibitions throughout each year and is now the UK exhibition centre for FIAP

There are events throughout each week but Thursday evening is our main meeting time. We would be happy to give you a tour of our facilities and inform you about our various activities that would add to your enjoyment of our fantastic hobby. The doors open at 7pm and the regular two hour meeting starts at 8pm. More About Us.
