If you'd like to join the +UK Photography Community you will find this information useful : )

The UKPC is a G+ page with two communities, one for specific topics and one for location based images.

We are dedicated to sharing the enjoyment of UK based photographers images. Anyone based in the UK with a passion for photography can request to join our communities, it doesn't matter what skill level.

Our two communities are...

UKPC GENRE SPECIFIC IMAGES ONLY
https://plus.google.com/u/0/b/101116887585805976409/communities/106017165713670425111

and

UKPC LOCATION SPECIFIC IMAGES ONLY
https://plus.google.com/u/0/b/101116887585805976409/communities/102309570842915194907
Are you thinking of joining us? 
We review the +Google+ profile of EVERY potential new member who applies to join the +UK Photography Community.

We use +CircleCount Hover Cards to do this. These hover cards*** make quick work of determining whether a person might be eligible to join. We also visit the applicants G+ Post stream. 

WILL WE LET YOU IN?
We love to have new members join our two UK Photography Communities but we do have a few rules, mainly to keep the spammers out. We do require people to apply to be members, we will vet your application and approve or reject as soon as we can. You don't have to be a great photographer, we are happy to welcome anyone with an interest, from beginner to expert.

We are focussed on the United Kingdom, Crown Dependencies and Ireland so only accept either residents or ex-pats - no offence to the rest of the world :-) So please ensure that your profile indicates where you are from, we will place you in one of our regional circles, based on that. We also require that people follow our Page if they want to join the Community. Again this helps keep the spammers out as they rarely take the trouble to read instructions.

So that's it:
1) Show where you are from on your profile
2) Circle our Page
3) Apply to join the Community
4) Wait for approval

WILL YOU RESHARE MY IMAGE?
If you do not post 'publicly' to your personal profile and you just post to a UKPC community category then it remains within the Community Stream and cannot be re-shared publicly.  If however, you put up a public post and re-share it to a UKPC Community region (e.g. London) then UKPC can re-share that post. Yes, if we think our followers will enjoy your image we will share your photography on our page.

USEFUL TIPS

HOW TO POST TO COMMUNITY CATEGORIES
If you are not sure how to post an image to the correct category PLEASE ask us or take a look at this series of screenshots.

COMMUNITY POSTS CAN "CLUTTER" YOUR MAIN PROFILE making the same image you posted to multiple communities appear in your profile stream. See this useful tip to prevent that from happening to you! https://plus.google.com/b/101116887585805976409/+UKPhotographyCommunityOFFICIAL/posts/JJf25de7KGr

If you enjoy photo themes on Google Plus you might like this
I LOVE TAKING PART IN PHOTO THEMES ON GOOGLE PLUS ♥ BUT for the life of me I cannot remember them all, with this difficulty in mind I've started a community that I know will help me and it will probably help you too... now before you change the channel, this community is different - you don't have to join! Unless you want to...

It's basically a searchable library of photo themes.

So, if you'd like to have a poke around and see if you have a picture you can share to a theme, visit the community and look for the box that says "search community". The post for each theme contains...

NAME OF THE THEME

THE #HASHTAG ASSOCIATED WITH THE THEME

IF THERE IS AN ASSOCIATED COMMUNITY FOR THE THEME

WHO RUNS THE THEME (not every theme has an organiser)

IF THERE IS A GOOGLE PLUS PAGE FOR THE THEME

THE THEME RULES

I'll post a screenshot on where to find the search box in the comments below and just so that image doesn't get swallowed by comments on the post I'm disabling all other comments. If you want to ask any questions please feel free to mention me when you share this post with your G+ friends and I'll pop over and try to help. :)

I've added a few of the photo sharing themes I've been told are still active to the community and more will be added as time moves forwards.

Many of these photo sharing themes have been here on G+ since it began. Many are new and some are super popular! All of these themes are easy to take part in and there are many many people out there with the same passions for certain photographic topics as you... I hope you get to meet them :) Say Hi from me ♥

This image of a couple, lost in the moment on Beaumaris Pier, is one of my favourite photographs. It was taken in July 2003 during a visit to the town of Beaumaris, located on Anglesey, North Wales. The town has superb views looking over the Menai Staits…
