Travel

The Travel Group is very active and welcomes all RPS members. We enjoy hearing members' ideas, seeing new images in the galleries, learning from one another and meeting when possible.

All RPS members are welcome to join the Travel Group.

The Group was formed to promote the enjoyment of travel photography: of trying to capture the spirit of places we visit and sharing that through photography. All our activities have the development of the skills necessary to achieve this at their core.

 

The Group is at its liveliest and most effective when there is discussion involving a wide range of members.

The Art of Travel Photography

Paul Sansome has been a professional photographer for 18 years and one element of his work has been organising and leading photography holidays in many destinations. For Paul, the best thing in travel remains meeting people but in his photography he always looks to portray the world in a more artistic fashion. Earlier this year his style proved perfect for a category in the Travel Photographer of the Year competition, "The Art of Travel", and winning the category was the third year running that Paul featured in the resulting exhibitions. Paul's presentation will encompass the landscapes and people from destinations such as Vietnam, India and Iceland and he will try to express his approach to representing a sense of place in his travel photography..
