This is a group for anyone who enjoys taking photos in the towns, cities and countryside of northern England. The area covered includes the whole of the Peak District National Park and surrounding counties, including Derbyshire, Staffordshire, Cheshire, Merseyside, Lancashire, South Yorkshire and West Yorkshire. It is a region of great contrasts, providing an endless variety of photographic opportunities.
The group is open to everyone who is keen to get out and take some photos- all are welcome whether using the camera on your phone or equipment costing thousands. The idea is to exchange ideas, maybe learn new skills from the more experienced, while meeting people and enjoying a good day out.
Any member is welcome to post an event on the site- a walk in the countryside, or a day out in a city or town. The more expert members might be willing to put on a workshop or similar, or if you have recently got some new equipment you might wish to get together with some other people to get some tips/learn together how to get the best out of it.
PLEASE NOTE: Like all other Meetup groups, this group provides an informal way to meet people with a common interest. Everyone taking part in the group events is responsible for their own safety and well-being, and no responsibility is assumed, or liability accepted, by the group organisers or the organisers or hosts of any event.
Welcome photographers! Suggestions are welcome for this year's Meetups
