Welcome to the 'I Just Wanna Tek Gud Photos' Blog

At least once a month we get out as a group on an organised outing of some description, and being a group of people who enjoy taking photos we usually come home with a very interesting and generally appealing selection of photos.  This blog is a record of where we have been and the photos we took at the time.

The Charity

About our chosen charity: 

The Children's Hospital Charity

The Children's Hospital, Sheffield is one of only 4 stand-alone children’s hospitals in the UK. The charity’s role is to provide over and above the standard NHS provision, enhancing the hospital and matching world class equipment with existing world class expertise.

Our hospital is a Centre of Excellence in many areas. Over 245,000 patient journeys are made to our hospital a year, helping children from our region, the UK and worldwide to receive the best care possible.

Our current Make it Better appeal, is to transform the children’s hospital as we know it. We aim to raise £10 million regionally by 2016 so we can create an environment which helps our children get better more quickly, with privacy to recover from painful surgeries. We want to provide world-class facilities with the world-class expertise already provided.

More Details

The walk (route here) will take roughly 2 hours to get around and since it will be entirely within Sheffield city centre it will be pushchair/wheelchair friendly and very easy going.  We have planned regular stops at interesting locations with insights into Sheffield's history provided along the way.

Everyone is welcome to take part; all skill levels and the more the better. Remember this is for a good cause and as with all of our outings you will have the opportunity to get to know and learn from other photographers whilst you tek you photos.

For those wanting to contribute their photos for the exhibition you will have until 19th October (2 weeks after the walk) to email your full sized photo files to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..  There is no limit to the number of photos you submit.  You will receive a reply to your photo email with details of where to send your payment of the £1.50 per print, preferably by bank transfer but cash can be arranged if you prefer.  The printing itself will be taken care of by the team, we are hoping that by doing all our printing in one order we can negotiate a better rate, any money left over will be put towards the donations target.

We will work with the cafe to try to make sure that you are informed about any sales of your photos, if any of your prints are unsold at the close of the exhibition they will be yours to collect and keep.

Any questions, comments or suggestions please post in the comments below or the forum/facebook group.
