Our friendly and informative meetings run from September to June, and are normally held at the Upper Bolton Conservative 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. We look forward to meeting you!

June Project Results
- Written by TomH
'Plug Hole' by Graeme Mitchell
On 22nd June, we saw the results of our June Project. Of the five teams who started out on this project, four produced final results with imaginative sets of images for some very difficult topics. Each team explained their approach and the background to each image. After careful consideration by the members present, a vote gave a clear victory to Team 2 - Zulfi Ali and Graeme Mitchell for their set on the topic of 'Aperture'.
