Photographers with Disabilities – 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. The group is open to all, not only disabled people.
PWD has an active website here can be found an active gallery where members can display their work, it provides a forum where photographers can discuss any issue related to photography and also seek support from other members.
Our members regularly exhibit work within the permanent display of work by disabled artists at the Vassal Centre in Bristol England, this also acts as a shop window as work can also be sold here.
PWD runs regular studio days at a variety of locations within the Bristol area, 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 feature of the group, again run within an accessible environment.
The group intends to raise funds to open an accessible studio and base initially in Bristol and, as the membership grows to open further studios and facilities around the country.
The group is open to members nationally and internationally, anyone wanting further details should contact the PWD by emailing us at info@photographerswithdis abilities.com
