From Editor’s Desk

IMGP8627 Satish and BaronetOhh! Exhausted. The month of July was full of activities and activities. It shows members were thirsty for the programmes for the past 3 years. All our YPS shows are fully booked and doing very well than … KABALIDA !! Friends, it is all for you and we can do anything for the upliftment of our society. The month started with PPT presentations, Macro outings, Basic courses and new learning in Photojournalism. I am trying hard to get experts from different fields of photography to guide our members, with their talks and presentations. I want to see our members showcase their work in YPS gallery,  Please make use of it.


I request you all to make World Photography Day Exhibition a grand success. Give your best 4 images on either landscape or cityscape (max 12×18 inches prints) before 15th August. Let us celebrate by honouring the precious Gems of our society. Please attend without fail.

For any photography club, a photographic salon is a big event. After a lapse of 4 years, we will be organizing the 34th All India Photography Salon during October 2016. Log on to our website for details.

Friend we hope you will guide us and encourage us in the coming months. Without you YPS cannot function. Now it is time to celebrate SHRAVANA masa in a grand way !!

YPS Corporate Membership has been renewed with FIP.
