Rushden & District Photographic Society


Welcome to the Rushden & District Photographic Society's website. This site is for members, potential members, photographers who enter our national exhibition (The Rushden Open) and anyone else who has an interest in what we do.


We try to provide a varied programme to suit all kinds of photographer. Less experienced photographers are very welcome to join RDPS. There are no requirements to have any particular camera, or indeed any camera at all, and you need not know your f-stop from your elbow. We are very happy to offer coaching and advice, on an informal basis, to anyone and help you progress with your photography.
