York Photographic Society

13th December Annual Auction with mince pies and sausage rolls

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.

This is a gallery with a difference. This is Anthony Emmott's panel for which he was awarded the prestigious Licentiate of the Royal Photographic Society (LRPS). Here are Anthony's comments on his experience:

The Royal Photographic Society aims to promote the best in photography in the UK and internationally and awards distinctions to photographers as decided by a panel of senior members of the Society.  I was delighted to be awarded the Licentiateship (LRPS) recently and I am pleased to show my panel of 10 photographs which I submitted as prints.  I have tried to include many images which are among my favourites and as is required by the Society’s brief they demonstrate a range of techniques and subject types. 

It was great fun assembling this group of images, trying to get a balance within the panel so that they look pleasing when hung together.  I can recommend the RPS Distinctions; it is very gratifying to be awarded something by one’s peers and I hope more people will have a go.  I want to thank Leigh Preston, Paul Foley, Pat and John Reed and of course [my wife] Carol for their encouragement and advice. I have now set my sights on the Associateship (ARPS).

The images are in the order that they were presented for scrutiny. Click on an image to enlarge and view as a slideshow. All images are © Anthony Emmott.
