    The PWD is a newly formed group set up to encourage disabled people to take up the hobby of photography and to support and encourage those already involved in the hobby.

    PWD has an active website http://www.photographerswithdisabilities.comwith a gallery of members work, much of which has been taken during recent studio sessions. It provides a forum where photographers can discuss any issue related to photography and also seek support from other members.

    A permanent display of members work can be seen at the Vassal Centre in Bristol, this also acts as a shop window as work can also be sold here.

    The group runs regular studio days at a variety of locations within the Bristol area, here members are encouraged to develop their skills taking portraits and still life photographs, where appropriate supported by the non-disabled members of the group. Weekly Photoshop sessions are another regular feature of the group, again run within an accessible environment.

    The group intends to raise funds to open an accessible studio initially in Bristol and, as the membership grows to open further studios and facilities around the country.

    Although based within the Bristol area the group is open to members nationally, anyone wanting further details can email us through our website.
