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.Their circle of friends and network contacts soon made them aware that there was significant possibilities and potential that could be tapped to make the realisation of these type of projects a strong possibility.PhotoBath has now grown to well over 60 local photographers & artists with several exhibitions and printed publications under our belt. We hold monthly meetings and have a very active members  Facebook group where we share photography and discuss related topics.

Members to PhotoBath receive discounts when joining in with exhibitions and initiatives, and a discounts with local businesses like the Bath Framer. Photobath is a non profit and all the money we raise is ploughed back into running the group, exhibitions, publishing and related projects.
