Members of the Gallery Photogroup have a common interest in photography. We thoroughly enjoy sharing our interests with each other in a friendly way whilst at the same time being determined to improve our work.
Most of our members use digital cameras and computer technology to print their pictures. Some use film for colour slides or to make pictures in a darkroom. In short, we cater for people with a wide range of photographic interests. We all strive to make our best photograph our next one without losing sight of the friendships and fun we gain from it all.
Our programme includes a wide range of presentations by talented visitors and group members, competitions, visits and practical evenings where we share our skills to help everyone benefit from members’ expertise.
We are pleased to have Joe Cornish as our Honorary President. Joe is one of the country’s foremost landscape photographers with a world-wide reputation. We have all benefited greatly from his contribution to the Group and count him very much as a friend.
The Gallery Photogroup is a member of the Northern Counties Photographic Federation and is affiliated to The Photographic Alliance of Great Britain, and The North Yorkshire and South Durham Photographic Association.
We meet on Tuesday evenings from September to June at 7:30pm at Trinity Centre, James Street, North Ormesby, Middlesbrough, TS3 6LD
Our membership is open to people of all ages. It includes those who make a living from photography, experienced amateurs and beginners who want to learn more about their hobby.
We are happy for prospective new members to attend a couple of meetings before deciding wether to join the group or not as this will give them the opportunity to see what happens at our meetings as well as being able to talk to members about the group.
Subscriptions are £45 per full year and there is a reduced fee for those who start midway through a season. Subscriptions contribute towards the running costs of the group.
