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

Architecture - Exposure to Edit
- Written by TomH
The Corn Exchange, Leeds
Our first Zoom meeting of 2021 took place on 7 January when Richard O'Brien presented a great tutorial on photographing architecture.
His basic premise was that you don't need expensive special equipment or privileged access to get superb architectural images. He proved that in spades and showed us his entire process, as he said, from exposure to edit.
His equipment comprises a Pansonic G9 (modern Micro Fourthirds) with a 7-14mm f/4 zoom lens and a 12-60mm F/3.5-5.6 zoom lens. Plus a tripod, an L-bracket and one secret weapon.

Our last meeting before Christmas, on the 17th December, was our traditional battle with Bingley Camera Club. We were lucky enough to have Ray Brammall ARPS EFIAP/s DPAGB APAGB BPE3* as our judge for the evening.
Each club had submitted 30 digital images which were randomly mixed and judged on the night.
