Getting your photos published

The latest news from the Bradford Camera Club. By Tony Caunt LRPS

The publicity people at Kodak once said “pictures are everywhere”, and that has been so true this last summer. We have experienced the hottest and sunniest period for many years, with temperatures up to around 40°C, and photographers have inundated Paul Hudson at BBC Look North with hundreds of images. I sent this photo of the sunrise taken on 20th June at 4.36am. It didn’t get shown on TV but I thought it was quite magical, and the fact that I was up at that unearthly hour should have given the picture credit! You can’t win them all but at least I tried, and that’s what photography is all about.

Look for pictures everywhere and enter them into competitions or get them published. I do get quite a few of my pictures into the Telegraph & Argus, usually news items such as the picture I took of Philip Davies MP with three little children in our local library. This got into the T&A, Keighley News and the Aire Valley Advertiser.

If you have pictures you would like to show off and perhaps enter into the competitions at the Bradford Camera Club, why don’t you come along to our weekly meetings at Carlton House, 46 Little Horton Lane, BD5 OBA? You can call Allan Ogilvie on 01274 884187 or Debbie Alstead on 01274 824758 for more information, or go online at sites.google.com/site/bradfordcameraclub

The programme for October is as follows: on the 3rd, a combined meeting with the Oddfellows. On the 10th, the Robert Bland Trophy competition for creative/manipulated images. On the 17th, a practical and tutorial evening (ideal for beginners), and then on the 24th and 31st it is the annual competitions (ideal to see what the members can produce). We look forward to meeting you!
