From our modest beginnings, we have established Derby City as a club that out of the 50- plus members of N&EMPF(North & East Midlands Photographic Federation), has long been in the top six at the annual N&EMP Exhibition and, for even longer, has an enviable reputation for the quality of its lectures. We also encourage the spirit of competition through monthly themed contests in both digital and print.

Over 40 years, Derby City has also built up a reputation as a friendly club where prospective members are given a warm welcome. They also come into a healthy fold of eager-to-learn beginners right through to experienced practitioners who both inspire and help others.

We have always had the advantage over other clubs in meeting all year round, and no other club in the region has such a flourishing photo library – over 150 books - or a more professional, up-to-date website.

Since retiring a few years ago, David - a member of Nottingham & Notts PS - has travelled across the world capturing many fine, award-winning images which show a great talent for landscape, nature and architectural photography.
David will show us dramatic vistas from the Faroe Islands to New Zealand, misty sunrises in the Val D’Orcia in Italy, wild wolves in Yosemite and bears in Finland, the awe-inspiring interiors of the Duomo in Siena, and we will see fascinating comparisons between the landscapes of Tuscany and the Palouse area of Washington State.
