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. 

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:

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