What is First Tuesday?

By Norman Smith LRPS

Following the resurgence of the London Region of the RPS we felt it appropriate to have a regular meeting to promote contact between ‘like minded’ people and to get the message of the RPS across.


The Region has developed a full programme of meetings dedicated to special topics but in order to raise awareness, discuss progress on general issues and to act as an ice breaker for new/prospective members, we set up the First Tuesday meeting to cover a wide range of topics.


The most popular evenings have been with speakers, on issues of the day.

In the 18 months we have been going, the most popular meetings have been:-

  • Why shoot RAW?
  • How to begin a photographic project
  • The 365 project – one member’s experience of a picture a day for a year
  • Investigating the colourspace, used by your screen and printer
  • Composition – why some things work and others don’t
  • Shooting for micro-Stock Photography Agencies
  • LRPS Advisory sessions
  • Wildlife photography

In May we will have the first of a series of introductions to the Special Interest Groups with a presentation from the Digital Imaging Group by Dr Barry Senior HonFRPS, past President of the Society and past Chairman of the Digital Imaging Group. The talk will include projection of recent DIG members' Print
Exhibition and Projected Image Competition images.


In June we have the Travel Group presenting their view of the world from a travel perspective and other SIGs will follow as soon as we can arrange.


Meetings are held at The Greenwich Gallery, Peyton Place, London SE10 8RS between 7-9pm, on the first Tuesday of each month, members and non-members all welcome. Please see the event section of RPS London for booking.
