Our friendly and informative meetings run from September to June, and are normally held at the Upper Bolton Social Club (Idle Road, Bradford, BD2 4JN) on Thursday evenings from 7.30pm until approximately 9.30pm.
You can find our syllabus for the year under the BPS Events section. Prospective members are welcome to attend a meeting free of charge before (hopefully) deciding to join us.
Our members have a wide range of photographic interests, experience, and equipment. You can see examples of our photography in the Gallery section.
Do you want to get to grips with your camera, learn photographic technique, get advice?
Join us on Thursdays (Sep–June), and get more from photography. Try a few meetings free.
We look forward to meeting you! Contact Us for more information

Judge - led Critique
- Written by TomH
Our 12 November meeting was a new type of critique for our club at several levels. Lee Sutton BPE5*, DPAGB, EPSA, EFIAP, LRPS, ADPS, GPU Cr3, GPU Zeus officiated and gave us his opinion on the images as a competition judge. Using Zoom, and with a select number of members submitting images, a very useful two-way conversation developed on each image. He also took the amazing step of doing a rough edit on each image to illustrate his comments!!
Lee's standard opening question was "Why did you take that shot?" which gave several of us pause for thought. Not before time!
A Learning Curve
- Written by TomH
Justin Minns, who made his name with his landscapes of East Anglia, gave us a fascinating insight into the development of his photography on Bonfire Night. He distilled his findings into ten tips which he illustrated very well with his images, giving us the not-quite-good-enough versions before the final finished product.
