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.
Maurice Biglin Flora Trophy
The results of the annual Maurice Biglin Flora Trophy. Congratulations to the winners.
Our next meeting is on Monday 19th October – Steve Race – “Life on the Ledge” – Wildlife Photography
Steve Race is an award-winning wildlife photographer based in Scarborough so it’s no surprise that seabirds figure prominently in his work. He has been a keen naturalist for over 30 years and believes there is no better place for variety of habitats and amazing wildlife. Steve’s work has been published through the RSPB, Yorkshire Wildlife Trust and the National Trust, and his work has received “Commended” in the “Wildlife Photographer of the Year Awards” and “British Wildlife Photographer of the Year Awards”. He is also a Director of a new exciting Nature Tourism company called “Yorkshire Coast Nature” in which delivers nature tours, photography workshops and talks across the Yorkshire Coast. His talk tonight focuses on Bempton Cliffs on the Yorkshire Coast which from March to September is home to 200,000 breeding seabirds. This talk is about the life and death struggle of these amazing birds and how they bring up their young on the tight cliff ledges on the 400ft white chalk cliffs. Bempton Cliffs is easily reached from here in Wakefield and this talk will probably inspire many members to go there and try their hand. With this in mind Steve will also include an insight into the basics of Wildlife Photography. Certainly an evening not to miss.

We meet almost every Monday evening from 7.30pm (except Bank Holidays).
