Welcome to Wakefield Camera Club. We are a long-established, thriving and friendly club, meeting most weeks. Meetings are always open to non-members so if you’re interested in photography why not come along. Details of the next meeting are below the images.
YPU Assembly and Exhibition
This is the premier photographic exhibition in the county each year, representing the best work in all the photographic clubs in Yorkshire in both print and digital projected images. This year the event is being hosted by Wakefield Camera Club and a vast amount of work has gone into creating an event to be proud of.

Our next meeting will be on Monday 9th May at 19:30 – From Hanoi to Shangri La – Colin New
Colin’s professional training was at Bretton Hall but, although all the clichés about childhood box brownies are true in his case, it wasn’t until he chanced upon the work of John Blakemore that it dawned on him that photography might be something important. Prior to these events he had dabbled in the darkroom, but from the time he saw their work he decided he too must try and use photography to try and show thoughts, feelings and emotions about life.
Colin joined a photographic society, entered club and national competitions before moving on to the world of salons and internationals. He spent many hours in the darkroom before cautiously emerging into the light to tip toe into the world of digital photography. He is a regular lecturer on the photo club circuit and visits all parts of the country. He has lectured for the RPS and the National Museum of Photography. He’s had solo exhibitions in London, Harrogate, Bradford, Buxton, Sheffield and Barnsley as well as contributing to countless group exhibitions. He’s a member of the London Salon of Photography and past chairman of GAMMA. Colin doesn’t specialise as he’s “having too much fun moving from people photography to landscape to flowers to documentary to travel photography and back again.” It promises to be a fascinating evening.
