About BPS

Founded in 1888, BRECHIN PHOTOGRAPHIC SOCIETY is one of Scotland's oldest amateur photography clubs and meets weekly between September & March and monthly between April & August.  BPS is a local photographic society with an ever-expanding membership, sharing tips & techniques and working together to help each other become better photographers. So bring along your camera, pull up a chair, and explore all things photographic. See our PROGRAMME for in-depth details of where and when we meet. Our site contains galleries of competition entries by our members who use their artistic and technical skills to tackle the challenges of these various photographic subjects. You can also follow us on Facebook here: BPS BRECHIN.

 

YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE AN EXPERT, NEW MEMBERS OF ALL GRADES ARE ALWAYS WELCOME!

Due to ongoing Covid-19 restrictions, Brechin Photographic Society is still running via online methods many of which held on the Zoom app. Due to the lack of meetings in our usual venue etc this year, we are charging just £20 for 2020-21 season although our usual membership fee of £45 is welcomed from anyone who wishes to support the continuity of the club for the following season. If you are interested in joining do message us via this website and we'll send you the details of how to join and once you have joined up we will deliver you a copy of our premium annual magazine also as part of your membership! 

We'd love for you to join us even if it is virtually in these difficult times!
