How to Become a Member of WPS
Joining Wolverhampton Photographic Society is easy and we invite you to be part of our group Simply come along to any of our Tuesday evening club nights at Windmill Community Hub on Henwood Road, Compton where you can complete an application form and pay your membership fee. You can also use the link on this page to download and complete the form in advance to bring with you. Payment may be by cheque or preferably bank transfer because we no longer accept cash payments. How much does it cost to join? There is an annual membership fee and a small payment, or ‘Door Fee’, each time you attend a meeting. The door fee mostly stays the same throughout the season but special events may require a higher door fee or a ticket to be purchased, perhaps where the event costs are much higher than normal or there are a fixed number of places. Do I need to have a fancy camera to become a member? If you intend to take photographs you will of course need a camera, but the most important thing is simply that you have an interest in photography and a desire to learn and share ideas and experiences with those who have a similar interest to you. Our members own a wide range of equipment and some of it is by no means the top-end of the scale. There are a wide range of interests too, including landscape photography, portraiture, nature/wildlife, travel, urban photography, abstract/creative and more. There is also a group within the club who create audio-visual (AV) presentations where you set a sequence of photographs to music. Several members are keen on landscape astrophotography. I know nothing about the controls on the camera. Is there something for me? Yes, definitely! There are regular monthly photography workshops throughout the season which look at a wide range of photography-related topics from techniques and skills to how to process your digital images. There are practical workshops too and you will find fellow members a rich source of help and advice. It is worth noting Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop are the most widely used software titles by WPS members. What facilities are there at the club? There is a small car park so you may find it easier to park next to Sainsbury’s near Compton island and complimentary tea & coffee are available at the break, but please bring your own mug to save the washing up. Do I have to be a member to attend? You can come along and attend as a visitor by paying a higher Door Fee but we encourage regular visitors to join WPS and therefore gain the benefit that full membership brings. What are the benefits of being a member? An interesting programme of events and presentations from established photographers Exchanging ideas and learning new skills with a group who have similar interests as yours Viewing, or taking part in, our informal competitions and formal national competitions Access to regular workshops which focus on specific techniques or types of photography Being able to participate in organised club visits Improving your enjoyment of photography in an encouraging, friendly and social environment As a member, can I bring a someone else as a guest? Yes of course. Guests simply pay the higher door fee on the night but if attending regularly we would of course recommend becoming a member.
