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.


********** Please Note **********

>>>>   Coronavirus COVID-19

In view of the ongoing Coronavirus COVID-19 situation, and the Government’s latest announcements, it has been decided to suspend RDPS meetings.

We realise that we only just said that meetings would continue but since then there has been new advice.

So, that’s it, meetings are off. Obviously, we’ll keep abreast of the situation and resume activities as soon as it seems sensible to do so.

    ++++   New Competition   ++++

So as to have something to do during the long days while we are all being 'distant' or 'isolated', and to try to keep the club momentum going, we have come up with a competition.
It's meant to be fairly informal, and won't count towards the Kocon Cup.
Just something to do....

The competition will be called the Corona Cup, and it will consist of as many rounds as we have time for.
Each round will have a topic and pictures will be uploaded to the Web site in the usual way.
We will judge the pictures ourselves while remaining isolated or distant, by looking at them on Flickr and casting votes via e-mail.

Details were sent to everyone via e-mail, but if yours got lost please ask for another.
