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.

If you wish to join in one of our meetings, to see what we get up to, and meet with our members, then you will need to register to receive meeting login details.
