Welcome to the Nature Group

Founded in 1976 under the Chairmanship of Heather Angel FRPS, the group aims to bring together people with an interest in any aspect of natural history photography, and with any level of ability to display their work.

The Nature Group is one of the largest and most active of the RPS Groups.

Group membership is approximately 900, largely from the UK but with members from all over the world. Members include well-known professional photographers, natural history authors, lecturers and those who are just starting out.

You will be made most welcome by our Group whatever the level of your photography. You do not need detailed natural history knowledge; all that is required is a genuine interest in, and respect for, nature.  The Group has always been extremely friendly, with members always willing to share their knowledge of both Natural History and photography with others.

Many members joining with little photographic experience have subsequently obtained a Distinction, some working their way through to a Fellowship.
