A big thank you to Yorkshire Decorative Glass for their sponsorship for the 2015/16 Season.

We're into our Summer Break at the moment, but there's the Summer Project to get stuck into. Our Mentoring System has now launched so if you have any questions, technical issues or just want some help with a particular image, get in touch with your mentor.

The 2015/16 Syllabus promises to be our best ever for content. We have a revised competition structure, our new Mentoring system, our Photoshop classes, critique and practical nights and our guest speakers. Yet again we have arranged a real array of photographic talent to come along and talk to us. In no particular order: Steve Race, KT Allen, Christine Widdall, Neil Chapman, Jane Lines, George Franks, Adrian Almond, Richard Spurdens & Lee Metcalfe. That's wildlife, sport, landscape, music, portraits and composites all covered. Our most expensive line up ever.

The 2015/16 Season will see our 65th Anniversary in April (2016) which will be marked with an Exhibition of our work. We have already booked exhibit space at Bingley Arts Centre for a 6 weeks run early in 2016.

Our Open Evening is Monday 28 September 2015 - put it in your diaries.

New Members are always welcome and we are actively looking to increase numbers as this gives us more opportunities to provide support for everyone.

For those who haven't been to any meetings yet or perhaps haven't been for a few years, please come along and see how things are done or how we might have changed. One thing that is the same - we're still very friendly. We are just a group of keen amateur photographers trying to enhance their enjoyment of photography with a programme of presentations, competitions and practical evenings. It's about helping each other develop and learn.

We meet every Monday evening throughout the autumn, winter and into spring. Our members come from all around the Aire and Worth Valleys including: Bingley, Shipley, Saltaire, Baildon, Keighley, Sutton, Oakworth, Haworth, Cullingworth, Wilsden to name but a few.

Our membership ranges from the very experienced to the beginner; the odd one or two are still using film and refuse to be dragged into the digital age! Whatever your level of expertise, you'll hopefully find something of interest. You'll certainly find a very warm welcome.

We've joined the 21st Century now by having a real web presence. Check out our Flickr site and also our Facebook site for more images and information. We also now have a Twitter account if anyone wants to follow us .......or even tweet us?
