What we're about

** Coronavirus Update **

Due to the coronavirus we will be holding our events online and will not be holding any meetups in the studio for the foreseeable future, although we hope to run a few outdoor events from time to time. Please see individual events for details.

A warm welcome to The York Photography Network!

Our vision is to create a community with an interest in any aspect of photography, with the emphasis on meeting people through practical activities in a collaborative and supportive environment based around regular meeting nights.

We welcome photographers, smartphone users, videographers, models and make-up artists, or anyone else who's interested, with any level of experience from absolute beginner through to professional.

We're calling it a "network" to emphasise the collaborative and informal nature, just come along and join in as and when you like.

We meet weekly, normally on a Wednesday evening at the York Photo Studio on Acomb Road. There is no fee, only a suggested donation of £3 per person on the door, and includes teas and coffees.

We also have a Facebook group at https://www.facebook.com/groups/YorkPhotographyNetworkGroup (https://www.facebook.com/groups/YorkPhotographyNetworkGroup,), or follow us on Instagram.

The activities are really just an excuse to get together, make some new friends and above all get shooting!

If you'd like any more information then please get in touch at info@yorkphotographynetwork.co.uk

See you soon,

Landscape Photography and Favourite Photos

Online event

Another 2 part session this week. Part 1 Landscape Photography. We'll watch and discuss a number of videos on landscape photography. This is a format that has worked well in the past. Part 2 Favourite Photos. Bring along a favourite photo or one that's made a lasting impression on you and tell us why. You can bring one of your own or someone else's, or both! ************* It is recommended that you install the Zoom Client for Meetings in good time in case there are any last minute hitches or updates to install. It is available for many devices and can be downloaded either from the link when you join your first meeting, or directly from the website https://zoom.us/test If possible, please also use a webcam and microphone as these are more friendly towards the presenter and it also helps to maintain our community if we can see each other. You do not have to have attended a previous meeting in order to attend, everyone is welcome. Because we meet regularly, many members of the group just attend without signing up, so there are normally many more people attending than it may appear. Don't worry if there are only a couple of people signed up, there is always a crowd! We welcome photographers, smartphone users, videographers, models and make-up artists, or anyone else who's interested, with any level of experience from absolute beginner through to professional.

Photography Treasure Hunt in York City Centre

The Cross Keys

For our first Wednesday night get-together since the lockdown, why not join your friends for a lighthearted photography-based treasure hunt and complete as many of the various tasks as you can! We'll meet up for a drink first, then divide into teams of 2 or 3 for the treasure hunt and reconvene afterwards. Social distancing will apply at all times. I'm suggesting the Cross Keys as our meeting point as this has outside space and doesn't get too busy, but this may change depending on whether it's actually open! You will need: A camera or smartphone A tripod may be useful Because we meet regularly, many members of the group just attend without signing up, so there are normally many more people attending than it may appear. Don't worry if there are only a couple of people signed up, there is always a crowd!
