About Us

Monthly Meetings

We have regular monthly meeting, usually on the second sunday of each month, with a programme of events that will appeal to anyone with an interest in Photography.

Our meetings are open to both members and non members and will allow you to meet fellow enthusiasts, share ideas with them, show your work and access some of the best photographers in the UK.

Monthly meetings are held at the Royal Photographic Societies headquarters, RPS House, in the creative heart of Bristol.  Our regular meetings are held on the second sunday of each month, with other occasional events throughout the year as announced.

Tea & Coffee is always available and a small charge is made to cover expenses or the cost of the occasional speaker or technical expert.

Full and specific details of all our future meetings are available via the Western Region Programme of Events.

Summer Outings

  • In August, instead of a formal meeting we hold an annual summer outing. We encourage Spouses or Partners to come along.

Christmas Social

  • In December the normal monthly meeting becomes the Christmas party, again we encourage you to bring your partner or spouse to enjoy some festive cheer and put up some of the year's images for others to see.

Social Media

We have a an active presence on Facebook where you're encouraged to post your latest images and chat with other members:

If you're on Flickr we also have the 'friends of RPS Western Region' group where you're encouraged to post and discuss your images:

I do hope that you will find something of interest through the year ahead and look forward to your participation in our events
