The Region covers a wide and diverse area, stretching from the high Pennine Moors in the west through to the varied and attractive coastal landscapes in the east and from the West and South Yorkshire urban conurbations in the south to the rolling landscapes of the North Yorkshire plains and North York Moors in the north.
Of course, the rugged east coastline also offers plenty of picture opportunities and for bird lovers, we are fortunate in having the RSPB reserve at Bempton for seabird enthusiasts.
As well as including the cities of Sheffield, Bradford, Leeds, York and Hull, the region includes areas of the Peak District, Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors National Parks.
At the moment the region has circa 450 members and it is fair to say that between them they cover just about every aspect of the photographic spectrum.
We have a new Regional Organiser in Mark Slater who will keep things on the move with the help of an active and hard-working committee.
