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.

Here's a selection of nine images from former YPS President and current YPS Vice-President and Programme Secretary, Peter Bayliss.

Peter got his first camera, a Box Brownie at the age of 11 but took very few images at that time. At the age of 16, Peter got his first 35mm camera but again took very few images (but more than he did with the Box Brownie). Later, in the 1980s, Peter had a couple of Pentax cameras with which he shot monochrome primarily graduating to taking family snaps and shooting home video. His first DSLR was in 2008.

Nowadays, Peter shoots cityscapes and landscapes and dabbles in portraiture. A particular interest for Peter is the self-portrait and he shot 366 self-portraits during 2012. Peter has also used Photoshop for creative effects in the past but this is on hold for now.

Peter has also worked on projects, making images of various groups and concerts and is embarking on a few new projects that are under wraps until he has more to say.

A lot of Peter's images are posted on Flickr where he goes by the handle Piman300.
