Desolate Places

The desolate parts of the Suffolk coast are my favourite haunt for landscape photography, in this case Orford Ness.
Having been under the control of various military agencies for most of the last century it is now administered by the National Trust as a wildlife sanctuary, and is only reachable by ferry.
Sadly many of the old military buildings are off limits and can only be photographed from afar unless you sign up for a one of the periodic organised visits.
That still leaves the wide vistas, random dilapidated buildings, the lighthouse, endless banks of ancient shingle and those glorious Suffolk skies. It is a magical place.

About

Welcome to the Royal Photographic Society East Anglian Region.  We are fortunate to have so many fantastic ancient and historic towns and cities providing great photographic opportunities. It also includes a many faceted coastline from Essex in the South to Norfolk in the North and many areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty such as the Norfolk Broads and Thetford Forest.

We cover a broad range of interests and approaches to photography in our Regional events and meetings. Many of these run jointly with one of the Society's Special Interest Groups (SIGs).

A number of Advisory Days, Events and Lectures run throughout the year.  These events are held at weekends in Cambridge, Norwich or Ipswich. Field trips are any day of the week and are often arranged by local volunteers.

This website is a place to find out what is happening in the Region.  If you are looking for and event or an Advisory day then do use this page as your start point.  Every two months we make a feature of a members work which will head the News section of our micro site.  East Anglia members can also join or Facebook Group here

Our region is run by members for our members.  As a Society based on volunteers we are always looking for new people to be involved.  

This is our "One Stop Shop" area where we will put the news from the region.  

The page is headed with " Feature" where we showcase a members work.  We are not always looking for panels, so if you have a small project that you are working on or some images that you would like the membership to see then contact the Regional Organiser to discuss.  

Newsletters and other news from in and around the region will also appear here and you can also link through to events.  

If you have RPS news from your part of the world and want it placed here then do contact me.

We have an active region with over thirty events last year.  Events can be Lectures, Field Trips or just get togethers with other members.  If you would like to take part in our events then please search for them by our region.  Many of the events are either Free or at reduced costs for RPS members and carry a small cost to non members.

If you would like to suggest an event then please do contact the Regional Organiser.  

The region is run by volunteers and events are funded by the region.  It's your region, the more we all put in to it the more we all get out of it.

We also run a number of Advisory days throughout the year.  Please see our Advisory section below.

We run a minimum of one Advisory each year however we often organise more and accommodate both Licentiate and Associate Fine Art whenever numbers allow.  These are normally held in Norwich and Foxton, Cambridgeshire.  

Although the advisory day is for Licentiate and Associate Fine Art, we are able to also provide feedback on these days for other categories within Associate with assistance from RPSHQ.  You will need to discuss this with the Regional Organiser and the Distinctions Dept before booking an advisory day.

Some groups also run advisory days so please do look out for advisory days throughout the whole RPS as well as our region.  We will aim to keep you updated with SIG Advisory Days wherever possible.

 

The East Anglian Team consists of a committee with four officers.

Jonathan Vaines - Regional Organiser

Andy Swain - Treasurer

Gill Beckett - Secretary

Matthew Clarke - Exhibition Secretary

To run our region we rely on the help of other dedicated volunteers and the wider membership.  It's your region and we welcome new volunteers.

Can you organise a photo walk or a small group meeting?  If so then please do contact the Regional Organiser.
