An exhibition is to showcase city images taken by a group of snap-happy photographers during a charity walk.

James Morgan, aged 33, from Woodseats, organised the walk through Sheffield city centre for members of his photography club, I Just Wanna Tek Gud Photos.

The amateur snappers captured images of attractive city scenes and intriguing people along the route, and the photographs will be sold during a special exhibition.

All funds raised from the sales will be donated to Sheffield Children’s Hospital where James’ daughter Sienna had lifesaving surgery to remove a growth from her back when she was just three months old.

James said: “Members of the club are always wanting to get out more with their cameras so I thought a photo walk would be a great way to get them out while raising money for a cause close to my heart.

“I planned a route that would take us past buildings with historical significance and great architecture and encouraged people to look up and shoot things that people pass by every day but rarely stop to admire or take notice of.

“The group took some great photos which we hope people will like.”

Around 50 black and white and colour images will be featured in the exhibition at Eten Cafe in Sheffield city centre, near the cathedral, for two months from November 2.
