Hi Guys and Girls,

Can anyone recommend any photography clubs in the South Yorkshire area that have a welcoming and diverse membership base?

I have tried a club in the north side of sheffield that shall remain nameless, but I wasn't impressed as they did not make me feel welcome. Especially when I offered some of my work for a competition to the reply of, "no thanks we need something that can win"

That attitude kills clubs.I joined Barton -on Humber club last October, made to feel welcome, 6 months on i feel like a life member,thats the way it should work. the club has a very diverse range of members,people have joined since myself and the club has benefitted from new ideas.Dont be put off by one bad experience you will find a club that helps you along, but also will benefit from having you as a member.P.S my club membership takes me a 20 mile journey each way plus a Humber bridge toll each way but i would poorer without the input from other members.Dont Localize too much.

Dead easy one mate - anyone anywhere near to Barnsley, you need to come along to the Shafton Camera Club. We have members from Elsecar if that's near you?

Am I allowed to include their site here? Anyway, sorry if not, it's shaftoncameraclub.co.uk I'm sure you can figure out where to put the www! It's a great site with some cracking shots on giving you an idea of what we get up to

I'm the club sec and will be away for the next 2 weeks, but you'd be most welcome after that for me to meet & greet. Feel free to email us through the club site, and Chris will reply (assuming he's not on hols too!). I look forward to hearing from you on my return from jollies

I've been a member of Sheffield Photographic Society for a few years and and am quite happy with it. There's a good mix of talks, competitions and outings available. Have a look at the web site to get an idea of what's on offer.
