Welcome to Whitchurch Photographic Society's – WPS website. WPS was founded in 1962 by local photographic enthusiasts to share photographic knowledge, which still continues today in a diverse and changing format with likeminded members from North Shropshire and South Cheshire.

We are a friendly group of people with many interests who range from  beginners to experienced photographers.

In normal times, we would meet at the Senior Citizens Club, Pearl Yard, Whitchurch SY13 1AQ every Tuesday evening from September to May and on a monthly basis during the summer however, during COVID 19 restrictions our meetings are ZOOM based.

When things get back to normal, we would open Pearl Yard at 7pm for a 7.30pm start, and are usually finished for 9.30pm, although on odd occasions, enthusiasm has caused us to finish a little later!

ZOOM meetings however, start at 7.15pm, usually finishing at a similar time.

We have a full calendar of interesting events that includes:

  • both internal competitions and external ones with other clubs.
  • lectures by both guest speakers and club members.
  • practical photographic sessions, at Pearl Yard and in other places of interest.

Members are welcome to upload their own images to the site.

The membership subscription is £ 25 per annum with a door fee for meetings of £ 2 for members and £ 3 for non members / visitors .

WPS is affiliated to the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain – PAGB - through the Midland Counties Photographic Federation – MCPF.
