We aim to run three or four events each year at Foxton Village Hall and Sports Pavilion, in Foxton near Cambridge.  

Our events cover all aspects of digital photography and imaging, from camera craft, through artistic enhancement in the computer, to printing techniques and colour management.

We invite some of the top names in the photographic world to talk about their work, demonstrate their techniques or share their skills.

 

In addition to the this we run joint field trips with the East Anglian Region throughout the year, creating opportunities for us to get out and about with our cameras in the company of other photographers.  

All of our events are open to non-RPS members.

If you would like any further information or have any suggestions for future events, please contact Centre Organiser, Mark Gillett

 

All events at Foxton are currently suspended but please go to our events page to see a selection of RPS online talks that are free to DIG members.

Mountain Hare Grooming By Di Jackson

Mountain Hare Grooming

"This image was captured during a trip to the Cairngorms in April 2018.  Fortunately, there was still plenty of snow around.  

Whilst exploring the Findhorn Valley, I spotted a group of mountain hares.  All bar this one disappeared very quickly up the mountainside leaving it to carry on with its grooming.  

I was able to crawl in the snow without spooking the hare until I was close enough to capture several shots of this very obliging animal.  

It was a very special experience and one that I will always treasure.   It is still one of my favourite images.

I was using a Canon 7D mkII with a Canon 100-400mm zoom at 400mm.  1/1250 at f6.3, ISO400."
