About the Scotland Region

As a large region we try to appeal to members all over Scotland with events from North of Inverness to South of Edinburgh. We try to have as many events as members wish with Distinction Advisory Days, informal constructive feedback days, Celebrations of Distinctions, a Travelling Print Exhibition, Lecture Series, and the Dunfermline Weekend every second year. Although with present restrictions, this has been put on hold. The Region encourages as many special interest groups as wish to participate in it. We aim to be informal and welcoming. For any further information, just drop me an email to either me or any of the committee members and we will endevour to reply as soon as possible.

John Maher

John Maher - Social Documentary

In the last of this year's talks, RPS Scotland introduces John Maher Social Documenter.

Former Buzzcock's drummer, John relocated from his home town of Manchester to the Isle of Harris in 2002, where he lives and works today . He says it took him seven years to discover a way of photographing the islands in a style that interested him. John created a new way of interpreting the Hebridean landscape, with a refreshing and innovative series of long exposure photographs. – all shot during the dead of night, under the light of a full moon. John’s unique photographic style and creative use of additional light quickly gained a following in the Outer Hebrides and beyond. His photographs of decaying man-made objects set against a backdrop of stunning Hebridean landscapes have been published in national newspapers, photography magazines and numerous online articles. This YouTube video shows John's work and thoughts.

Monthly Competition

A fun competition for Scottish members who can choose their favourite from submitted images each month.

I see numbers are slipping again in our Monthly Competition. Perhaps members feel exposure on Facebook creates more feedback, who can say. Nevertheless we have an excellent winner with Titanic (located in Belfast) probably the most famous ship in history for all the wrong reasons.
