About Us

 

PLEASE SEE THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE FOR A SUMMARY OF OUR EVENTS, FULL DETAILS AND BOOKING DETAILS SHOW ON THE EVENTS PAGES.

The South West  Region covers Devon and Cornwall and we try to cover all parts of the area on photographic trips. With a large variety of coast, moorland and tourist areas we have much to keep us busy photographically.

We arrange field trips throughout the summer months, interspersed with an annual after Christmas get together outside somewhere in early January which is a get together after the festivities.  Throughout the autumn/winter period speakers are arranged along with Distinctions Advisory days, lectures and in February our Annual General Meeting. In addition members of the committee are prepared to visit camera clubs to talk about the Distinctions which are available through the Society.

Please see the events page to find dates and please contact the event leader if you intend to join as it is useful to have an idea of numbers, but please do contact a committee member if you need any further help or advice.

The region also runs 3 travelling print folios, one of which is purely mono, and can be produced digitally or analogue, and if anyone is interested in joining, please contact Margaret Hocking at bosrowynek@btinternet.com, for further information.

In addition to the travelling print folios we have a group in West Cornwall who meet on bi monthly, but attending this group is not limited to West Cornwall members, all RPS members will be made welcome if you can make the trip, dates of their meetings are shown on the events pages or from Vivien Howse ARPS by email on vivien.k.howse@gmail.comIf you are interested and would like to come and be added to our email list then please contact Vivien.
