Our friendly and informative meetings run from September to May, and are normally held at the Upper Bolton Conservative Club (Idle Road, Bradford, BD2 4JP) 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!
Farne Island Trip

Due to a variety of reasons, the number of members and spouses who went on the trip reduced to only seven. Then because of the weather, the two island trip was amended to be only land on one (Health and Safety - slippy causeway).
Still that did not deter us from getting some fantastic shots of the birds and a few seals from a distance. Paul and Graeme have already posted some images on our Facebook page.
By gum those Terns are vicious little birds protecting their nest.

The club ended its 2015-6 session on 26 May as usual with the President's Evening. Rais Hasan, our new President, stamped his personality on the meeting immediately by appearing in a very smart suit complete with collar and tie.
As part of the initial announcements, Rais revealed that the YPU has asked BPS to host the YPU Assembly in 2019 or 20. This set off much discussion and it was agreed to take a vote at the end of the evening. He also stated his targets for his two year tenure of the presidency to be:
· Improving the diversity of the Club
· 3 Members achieving LRPS
· Improving the members' health
together with greater sponsorship and grant support.
Next was the tea break enhanced, for the occasion, by an impressive variety of self-catered food and drinks.
The trophy presentation ceremony followed with sixteen trophies presented.
