Welcome to North Birmingham Photographic Society.

If you’re looking for a friendly photo club in north Birmingham then you’ve found one!

The Society has evolved from Handsworth Photographic Society, one of the oldest in the UK. HPS held its very first meeting at Soho House, Birmingham, on 7th February 1894. The occasion was a lantern slide lecture given by artist, photographer and traveller, Frederick W.W. Howell, F.R.G.S. who specialised in images of Iceland and the Faroe Islands.



Today, NBPS, which is affiliated to the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain (P.A.G.B) through the Midland Counties Photographic Federation (M.C.P.F.), welcomes photographers of all abilities and caters for all tastes and levels in photography both film and digital.


The Society meets most Wednesday evenings at 7:45 pm for 7:55pm from September to June. The varied programme includes visiting speakers, members' evenings and regular club and inter-club competitions.
