York Photographic Society

21st February "Pocklington CC Exchange Visit"

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 Week at YPS - 14th January 2015

Following a cracking start to this session last week when John Illingworth inspired us with his Diverse Photography, we continue with a talk this week by local professional photographer, Jim Poyner, entitled "12 Years a Pro and Still Winging It".

You can read about Jim here.

I've also put up a new Members Gallery Page with images by Geoff Holland. A reminder that any YPS Member can send me images if they want a Gallery page on the YPS Website. The requirements (which are different to YPS requirements) are:

  • 9 images
  • Between 1500 & 2048 pixels longest edge (whether portrait or landscape format)
  • JPEG format; sRGB colour space
  • Any subject
  • Must be the member's own work
  • Any time you want to update your images, just send me another email, letting me know which images to replace (if any)

You can also send me a potted bio if you'd like to have a few words about yourself and/or your photography to accompany your images. Whilst I do my best to remind visitors to the site about copyright and to refrain from downloading without permission, I don't put any © watermarks on the images. You may do so if you wish (easily done with Lightroom, Aperture, Photo Mechanic or any image editor that handles layers).

Finally, a reminder that Allan Highet will be expecting your entries for the Monochrome Print Competition this Wednesday. Remember too that Allan requires digital images in the usual YPS format The Competition itself is on the 4th February and will be judged by John Reed. You can see last year's winner, places & commendations on this page.

York Photographic Society - York's longest established camera club -  meet at the Poppleton Centre on Wednesday evenings from September to May. The Poppleton Centre is easily accessible and there is ample free parking. Tea & coffee is served during or after the meeting and there is a bar at the centre where we put the World to rights after the meeting closes.
