Swiss Flag

Switzerland

A country of lakes and mountains.

Welcome to the Swiss Chapter!

We welcome members from both Switzerland and neighbouring countries

The Swiss chapter was founded in 2012 and we are now some 35 members of varying ages and experience. We have both professional and amateur photographers of different nationalities with a number of us possessing RPS distinctions. We welcome members from both Switzerland and neighbouring countries.

Every year we aim to have 5 or 6 meetings covering visits to exhibitions, workshops and distinction advisory days. Switzerland is not a large country; it is therefore quite easy to reach our meetings by train or car. The meetings mainly take place in Murten, Biel or Zurich. See 'Events'.

We also run a monthly e-circle where we critique each other's work and decide which one is our favourite of the month. See 'News'.

The chapter relies on volunteers and people willing to participate in its activities. If you are able to suggest an event please contact the chapter organiser, Rob Kershaw, via email:

rob.kershaw@bluewin.ch

If you'd like to help with any of the administration of the chapter, please also contact Rob.

 

We Are:

Chapter Organiser: Rob Kershaw ARPS

Chapter Treasurer: Richard Tucker ARPS

Chapter Secretary: Jill Taylor LRPS

'Two Kings' By Timo Lehto

This is our May favourite: 'Two Kings' by Timo Lehto

"The inspiration to this image came while reading a wonderful book “Fantastic Women: Surreal Worlds from Meret Oppenheim to Louise Bourgeois”. I wanted to aim towards surrealism and at the same time try my skills in making a composite image. I began a bit contrarily to normal because I didn't have a clear idea how the final image might look and the concept developed whilst working on it. The only thing I knew was that I had this image of the frog taken in our pool which I knew I wanted to do something with, but just didn't know what."
