Welcome to the leading photography club in the area. We hold weekly meetings (Sept – May) with guest speakers, competitions, exhibitions, workshops, and photo walks.

Entries for our 41st Open Exhibition are now open. Click here for more information.

20th November at 7.30pm – Photography with a single light
We welcome professional photographer Brian Worley, who will deliver a short presentation of his portrait work with a single light, and then will provide a live shoot demonstration of single light portrait photography. He will have the camera connected to the computer so that members will be able to see each picture as it is taken, and gain an insight into working with a single light for portraits. This session will provide valuable information ahead of our “studio” evening on the 11th December.
Brian spent fifteen years working for Canon’s European organisation, where he was tasked with introducing digital cameras to the European market. He is highly regarded as one of the most knowledgeable Canon EOS system experts.
We meet at the WI Hall on Warwick Road, Solihull. Visitors are always made welcome. £3 at the door please.

Monday 26th November – Workshop on Creative Image Making
This workshop is an opportunity to see how one of our members, Phil Moorhouse, creates some of his imaginative composite images. A great opportunity to whet your creative appetite so make sure to bring your laptop. More details can be found in the Members’ Area.
Workshops are not held in our usual venue and are for members and guests by invitation only. If you would like to attend, please contact Bob Breach via Email: Breaches@btinternet.com

27th November at 7.30pm – 3Ss Inter-Club Contest
Independent Judge Steve Clifford will allocate scores to all the images in this final leg of the annual Inter-Club Contest between Solihull, Sheffield, and Shillington. The contest comprises 20 projected images from each of the three clubs, shown anonymously and in a random order. Historically, Solihull has done well in this battle, but came third last year. We are hoping for a better result this time.
