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.

Kingdom of the Ice Bear

Bob Johnson ARPS tells the story of his four week trip photographing polar bears from the Havsel - an old seal hunting boat. We hear about the famous old boat and her equally famous captain Bjorn Kvernmo and of course see the many bears they found on the polar ice cap.
