Volunteer for a region
Paul Berkeley

I have been an amateur photographer since the age of 10 and I am in my early 70's. I am into all types of genre but I specialise in action and street shots. I also do a lot of theatre photography for shows.

I am into self improvement by obtaining distinctions which challenges me to better myself in the art. I am also still working, manufacturing my own products such as Triggersmart and Sabreswitch.

Could you help run an event for the Southern Region? We are looking for volunteers to help run events in three areas of the Southern Region:

East (Portsmouth - Chichester)

For more information please email or telephone 0117 316 4476

Trevor Judd
Trevor Judd

Trevor has had a chequered photographic past. Starting out shooting film, in his teen years, life then got in the way which led to a thirty year hiatus. Returning in the digital era has allowed for his photographic interests to be reawakened.

His professional life has been spent, predominantly, in finance roles. Concurrently, with these professional positions, he has offered the services of his abacus in the support of other organisations and trade bodies, in a voluntary capacity. He’s currently an active committee member in the service of the Professional Garden Photographers Association and the Garden Media Guild.

Trevor has a particular interest in the production of fine art botanical portraits. He’s been fortunate enough to have seen his images exhibited throughout the UK.

Examples of his work can be found at

Bhupinder Ghatahora BA (Hons), ABIPP, ARPS, ASWPP
Event Organiser

Bhupinder has been an active Associate Member of the Royal Photographic Society (RPS) for 15 years. She is a qualified professional freelance photographer with a BA Honours degree in Photography and Digital Imaging.

Over the years, she has studied and used analogue (traditional) cameras/equipment and film developing/printing techniques that are less used due to new digital technologies being introduced within the photography industry. She has adapted and is very conversant with the digital advances and is well practised with the changes.

Bhupinder voluntarily supports the community as the Official Photographer for The Pink Place Basingstoke registered charity and as a Trustee of the Helping Hands registered charity. She also runs and manages a Basingstoke networking group as the Lead Ambassador.

Bhupinder has been running a successful free photography club for several years where new and experienced members meet twice a month. She is keen to promote photography and ‘give back’ to new and seasoned photography enthusiasts what she has learnt over the years.
