About Us

Overview.  The London Region of the RPS aims to provide opportunities for photographers of all levels to learn and develop their skills in positive and enjoyable environments, whether in workshops, as group events, on group walks or by taking part in projects.

London Micro-Groups.  We currently have three micro-groups - street, london naturally and bookworms - which meet on a regular, usually monthly, basis, and are led by volunteers with particular interest in these areas - to see more, follow the links - or see the right hand side of this page.

London Local Groups.  We also have two local groups - one in SW London and one in SE London, which provide an opportunity for London Members to meet locally and discuss 'all things photographic'.   They meet on the 2nd and fourth Tuesdays respectively, and details can be found on the Events Page. We are aiming to start a North London Group (or Groups) before the end of 2017 or early in 2018.

Distinctions Support.  We have our own Distinctions Support Team.  Working closely with Bath HQ we run a number of Advisory Days for both Licenciate and Associate levels each year - again details can be found on the London Events page.  In 2017 we starting running self-help groups for these levels and details of these can be obtained by e-mailing:  londondist@rps.org

London Region Members Exhibition. This year, 2017, for the first time we have held a London Region Members Exhibition:   This will be running at the Croatian Embassy from mid-October to mid-November - see here.  We plan to take this Exhibition to other parts of the Capital.

Keynote Talks  Three times a year, the Region offers Keynote talks from a variety of photographers. This year, Guardian Sports Reporter, Tom Jenkins and Fine Art and Advertising Photographer, Peter Dazeley FRPS, have given us talks and our next speaker on 23rd November, will be Alixandra Fazzina, photojournalist and author.  You will be able to find this on the Events page shortly.

London Major Projects.  The London Region has been unique in running a major project each year. Our 2016/2017 project was completed in terms of photography in April and an Exhibition was held in July.  Here is the website.  Our new project "Celebrating London" is soft launching in October and should be fully underway by the end of the month.   You can join up here and be among the first to get a log-in to the new website or you can follow us on Facebook here

London Region Workshops.  From time to time we offer a variety of  Workshops.  Currently we are running a series of three workshops (each can be taken individually) by Zoe Whishaw.  You can read about Zoe here and about the workshops on the events page here and here.

Keeping in Touch.  We keep in touch with our members through our events mentioned above, through e-mails, our Facebook pages and Twitter:  See below.  At the end of each month we send out an e-mail update called Capital Letter, which is a reminder of key events happening during the next two months.  Information about forthcoming events is also published in The RPS Journal, distributed to all Members at the beginning of each month.

Getting involved - Volunteering.  The RPS is run by a small staff at Bath HQ and by a huge number of volunteers and London is no exception and there can never be too many.  Our volunteers work very much as a team:  we meet as a group every two to three months to share ideas, so why not join us by bringing your skills and ideas to the Region?
