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 firstname.lastname@example.org or our Region Secretary George Backshall at email@example.com
South East Region Advisory Days
Face to Face Advisory Days have been suspended, but we will be offering online advisory days in 2021.
Check our events pages for more details.
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
South East Events
Sadly face to face events have been cancelled for the foreseeable future due to the COVID-19
We will be rescheduling these events as soon as possible once the crisis is over.
However we are developing a programme of exciting online events - see our events page for more details.
During the Covid crisis we have been busy putting on online events all of which have sold out very quickly.
