York Photographic Society

New Season Starts 6th September. Full 2017-2018 programme published

This is the website of York Photographic Society, York's longest established photography club and indeed one of Britain's earliest photographic societies. New members are always welcome to this thriving, friendly and energetic camera club.

On the 11th February 2015, York Photographic Society members Jo and Russell Watkins will be giving a talk about their photographic trip to Uganda. They travelled there in January 2014 as part of a small group and were fortunate to be able to track and photograph habituated chimpanzees and mountain gorillas along with other primates, mammals and birds.

Jo is a late convert to photography but since it added to her enjoyment of wildlife, decided that it was a useful skill to master. Jo enjoys the chase as well as the catch and is a strong advocate of ethical wildlife photography. She is also developing a love of street photography and candid portraiture.

Russell has always been keen on photography and with the advent of digital photography was at last able to satisfy both sides of his brain - the creative and the geek.

Russell's wildlife shots started out as "just something to shoot" but this has grown into something of a passion and many of his wildlife images are sold through stock libraries. Like Jo, he believes in ethical wildlife photography and conservation. He also enjoys street photography, portraits, well anything really, as long as he can use a camera.
