About Us

The Southern Region covers Hampshire, Dorset, and parts of West Sussex, Berkshire, Wiltshire and Surrey on the mainland, and includes the Isle of Wight and the Channel Islands.

We are one of the largest regions by area with a regional membership of almost a thousand members.

With an exciting and diverse programme of events throughout the year, we aim to offer meetings and activities for all members, no matter where in the region you live or where your interest in photography lies.

Our programme includes Distinctions Advisory Days, technique workshops and photowalks, as well as events in collaboration with Special Interest Groups.

The RPS Southern Region is managed by a dedicated team of volunteers who work together to maintain a community that we can all be proud of.

If you wish to become a volunteer or if you have any questions about the region, feel free to contact us at southern@rps.org.In addition to the RPS website you can find us on Facebook, a simple and accessible way to stay in touch and share ideas.
