South East

Welcome to the South East Region.

The South East Region has over 800 members and is one of the largest RPS regions, covering the counties of Kent, Surrey, East Sussex and West Sussex.

We aim to support our members by providing a comprehensive programme of events across the region, including distinction advisory days, high profile speaker events, photo-walks and workshops. We also collaborate with Special Interest Groups to promote their activities and host an annual Members’ Day where members are encouraged to show and talk about their photography.

We welcome feedback on regional events and suggestions for future activities. If you wish to join the region or have any questions or comments, please contact our Regional Organiser, John Gough at

The RPS also offer online 1:1 portfolio reviews which are a valuable addition to the advisory days - more information available via the relevant Distinctions page
