Welcome

A very warm welcome to Jaguar Photographic Society. One of the oldest and most active clubs in Coventry, we have been in existence for over 40 years. We have long since become independent from Jaguar Land Rover, but still welcome photography enthusiasts at all levels from our spiritual home, as well as from Coventry, Warwickshire and the surrounding areas.

Demonstrations, practical outings, competitions, studio shoots and presentations are organised to suit all interests and abilities. Additionally there is a monthly meeting where several local photographic clubs combine, to form the Mercia group, where a big name lecturer is booked to give a talk or presentation on a range of photographic subjects.

Feel free to drop in on one of our club nights, to see what we get up to, and meet with our members. But do check the programme first to make sure where we are on that particular evening.

If you would like to receive more information about the club, you could subscribe to our Weekly Newsletter. It contains information about club activities, and other related events in the area. The link below will take you to our subscription page.
