PhotoBath was conceived in 2014 with the coming together of a group of like-minded photographers in the Bear Flat area of Bath looking to establish opportunities to promote their own work and explore the potential to develop and plan major photographic events which were not available locally.

From 2014 to 2020 Photobath has put on four member base exhibitions:

Formal membership has been discontinued and participation in ongoing projects will be by invitation, involving photographers producing interesting and stimulating work, who are committed to contributing to our aims, objectives and ethos.
