  2. It is with deepest regret that we announce the passing of one of our long-standing members, Gary Coyle.
    Many visitors will recognise both his work as a sports photographer, and his name as a prominent community member. He registered with Talk Photography back in 2006, not long after the start of the site and has been a regular contributor since.

    It goes without saying that Gary will be sorely missed by many members, and his passing is a huge loss to the photography community.

    Our thoughts are with his family at this time.

    Funeral details :
    Dewsbury Crematorium
    Tuesday 13th September 2016 at 2pm.
    Afterwards at Batley IDLC (Batley Nash).
    All welcome.


    There is also a discussion thread here if anyone wishes to add their own thoughts.

    Very nice that Elvis, as said the b/g works really well (y)

    I've been to a local site that used to have them but having been several times I can't find any though I guess it's relatively early days yet.

    Lovely shot!

    Spotted 7 on my walk last night, back with the camera this afternoon...not playing ball.

    Might have to pop up first thing in the morning to feed them
