The Sri Lanka Chapter of the Royal Photographic Society (RPS) was founded in 2012 with the then High Commissioner for UK in Sri Lanka Mr. John Rankin as the founder patron.
The local Chapter has been closely associated with the Photographic Society of Sri Lanka (PSSL) since its inception, mostly due to the long legacy of the two institutions. Working closely with PSSL, the Chapter has had a seminal influence on its working, especially with the introduction of the specific interest groups that are akin to those of the RPS. The two institutions share common ideals and goals in fostering the photography landscape of the Island.
As overseas members one may often feel a little isolated especially when it comes to preparing for RPS Distinction panels. This new FB group closes that gap and gives you the same opportunity to engage as UK members can. Go Inside
A resplendent island, with a record of human habitation 120,000 years ago, and with a recorded history of 2500 is a potpourri of culture, colour and tradition. With its lovely landscapes, wild life and friendly people It’s more than a photographers dream, a sensual shutterbugs dream come true.
