Welcome to the FoBP Photography Group.

Friends of Beaumont Park - 2016 Calendar

The Beaumont Park Calendar 2016 will be on sale on Yorkshire Day (1st August in the Park). This year we are looking back at what the Park looked like a 100 years ago…some things you might recognise, some things aren’t there anymore! We’ve held the price at £5.00. If you would like a calendar but can’t make Yorkshire Day then they will be on sale in the Visitor Centre or email us photogroup@fobp.co.uk  with contact details. All proceeds go to helping the Park



     March 2015 - Photography Group

We meet on the second Saturday of each month in the Visitor Centre from 10:30 am until lunchtime.

At each meeting we discuss a chosen theme and members' volunteer to lead sessions or discuss various aspects of photography; take a look at our events timetable -  to see what we are doing in the coming months.

In addition, a "photo of the month" competition is held, where members exhibit photos and vote for "best" photo. the winning 3 photos are framed and put on exhibition in the Visitors Centre until the following month.

At some of our meetings we hold a coaching / mentoring clinic to help the less experienced members.
