Northern Focus

“Northern Focus” is the news bulletin of the NCPF, which we published twice a year in the Spring and Autumn. Whilst the newsletter was originally designed as a printed document circulated to clubs, it is now published ‘on-line’.

“Northern Focus” is intended primarily for members of the NCPF.  However, it is hoped that some items will interest photographers outside the Federation area.


To view copies of the magazine on-line, ‘click’ on the relevant link below to open a PDF file.  To make the magazine more reader friendly it has been fully “Book Marked”. For example, when you open a copy in Adobe Acobat, ‘click’ on the little icon with the blue ribbon, located down the left hand side of the window, to show the “book marks”.

Over the years “Northern Focus” has over the years won numerous awards from the PSA.   This level of achievement is not attained without the help of the bulletin’s many contributors.  It is too easily to become complacent with something that we are all familiar with and it is perhaps salutary to recognise that others from outside our own circle rate it so highly.  We would like to keep it that way.

Articles or letters for inclusion in “Northern Focus” are always required. Technical articles, giving hints and tips or explaining a technique are especially welcome. Also items about clubs or individuals are useful.

If you have anything that you would like to submit to the magazine you can send hard copy or email the article (preferably as a Microsoft Word file, though not essential).
