TALK-WALK-TALK: Architecture and Built Environment (ABE)

RPS Landscape Group Newsletter, October 2023

Talk-Walk-Talk: Architecture and Built Environment (ABE) by Colin Balfour LRPS

The response to the first TALK-WALK-TALK (TWT) on Coastal photography has been excellent for the Landscape and DI groups. The WALKs are now in full swing and the feedback is very good. Buoyed up from this, the joint team are now planning the next TWT round – next time it will be Architecture & Built Environment (ABE).

Currently, we are recruiting the walk leaders for ABE. Leaders do not have to be experts in the genre, simply to be prepared to take up to 10 photographers out to a given location that provides the right environment to fit the ABE remit. That might be a city centre, a village, a specific building or even standing stones. You choose your own location for your walk.

The TALK will be in mid-February 2024, with the WALKs following the TALK up to the end of March. Final discussion TALK sessions to be held in April.

Leaders can claim travel and parking expenses incurred to lead their walk. In addition, we ask Leaders to discuss and decide with their walkers when and where to hold their final TALK discussion session.

If you feel you would be interested in being a walk leader then please get in touch via email to We do 90% of the work and keep you well-informed throughout. Any questions you may have to help you to decide whether to volunteer or not, then do get in touch.
