Please see e-mail below from Jennifer Russell

My name is Jennifer Russell and I am a Casting Researcher at Storyboard Studios, an independent production company based in Glasgow. We have been commissioned by BBC to make a brand new photography competition series and we are looking for people who would like to apply to take part.

The show will follow six amateur photographers as they compete for assignments and are mentored by some of the most influential and exciting photographers working in Britain today. 

We are looking to hear from passionate and talented photographers who have the ability and flair to take part in a contest where one person will be named Photographer of the Year.

If you feel your work has a distinctive vision and captures the world around you in a fresh way, we would love to hear from you.

If you, or anyone you know might be interested in finding out more on how to apply, please visit our website: https://storyboardstudios.tv/photography/

“Bringing Prestigious Presenters and Inspiring Photographic Workshops to the Kent Area

I am writing to you as Co Organiser of DIG SE, your local Centre, under the umbrella of the RPS. We aim to invite keynote speakers to inform us on many aspects of photography including processing and printing techniques. We hold four meetings in the year; most are on a Sunday and are held in various venues around Kent. 

Our all day events are, not only interesting, but also they are a great place to meet up with other local photographers.  People generally rebook once they’ve been to one of our events as we aim to be a friendly and inclusive group and try to bring high note speakers to our locality.  This coming year we have added some workshops to our programme, and run by our Presenters. Take a look at our web page

Some of the members of your Club may already attend our events but we welcome anybody to join us, and you don’t have to be a member of the RPS to attend.”

Forthcoming Camera Club Outings

York/WhitbySunday 5 to Tuesday 7 April 2020

Sunday 5 April: travel up to York in the morning, walking tour around the city in the afternoon and time for sunset/evening photography

Monday 6 April: private minibus trip to Whitby via the York Moors, Goathland etc. – full itinerary to be confirmed (maximum 16 people so first come, first served)

Tuesday 7 April: more time in York before travelling back to London in the afternoon/evening

When I first put this in the Newsletter the cost was £106 for two nights’ accommodation at the Travelodge Central Layerthorpe (per room) plus around £50 for the day trip (depending on final numbers).

Charlotte will organise the above but you’ll need to book your own train tickets, a reminder these went on sale on 12 January.

As Charlotte will have to pay in full for the Travelodge accommodation to get the saver rates, it’d be great if you could email her to let her know that you’re going and she will contact you to give her bank details. The cost is £106 (this forms your non-refundable deposit). If you’d like to share a room, please her know who you’re sharing with and transfer £53 each. Partners/relatives/friends are welcome on this trip.  

Greenwich – Sunday 26 April – 10:30am

Meet at the Gate Clock pub (by Cutty Sark station) and leave for a photo walk around Greenwich covering Greenwich Market, Greenwich Park, Observatory (outside) and views from there, Naval College, Queens House, Painted Hall. Tripods aren’t allowed inside any of the buildings but are fine for the outside areas.

We’ll also stop somewhere for a pub lunch.

Email Charlotte to let her know if you’d like to join the trip.
