Fentham P.S. is a small, friendly camera club which meets on Friday evenings at 8.00pm at Sutton Coldfield Methodist Church Centre in South Parade. We have an excellent programme of visting speakers, competitions, practical nights and social events during our club year, which runs from September to May. Check the programme page for details of our current schedule.
We have members at all levels of ability, so you should fit in no matter what your experience. By far the best way to find out more is to visit us on a Friday evening and meet everyone.
Our members have a wide range of interests including black & white and colour prints, projected digital images and audio visuals. Most people have now changed over to taking and showing their pictures digitally and we have lively group discussions on improving skills in the use of both hardware, and software such as Photoshop and Photoshop Elements. Thanks to the National Lottery 'Awards for All' initiative, we own a laptop computer and digital projector, which are used for club presentations and competitions.
Our fees for 2013-14 are £20 annual members subscription, plus a £2.50 door fee per evening for members and visitors.
In Spring 2011 we launched a new audio visual group for the West Midlands: FADE.
Meeting on the second Wednesday of the month, anyone interested in making and watching AV presentations is welcome to attend. More details on the Audio Visual Group page.
We have a reputation among our visting speakers, judges and many other friends, as being one of the friendliest and most informal clubs in the Midlands. One example of this is our keenly anticipated Celebration Supper, held every January as a thank-you for all of our guests during the year.
So, if you want to improve your photography, why not come and visit us on a Friday evening? You will be assured of a warm welcome.
Why Fentham? People sometimes ask "why is the club called Fentham?"
Well, when the society was founded in 1967, the meetings were held at the then Fentham Road Girls School in Erdington. Although we have moved our clubroom three times since then, the name has stayed the same.
Fentham P.S. is affiliated to the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain through the Midland Counties Photographic Federation and is a member of Made in Sutton.
