RPS Central Region Special Event and Annual General Meeting 19th June 2016 this event is free to all RPS Member This Event is also open to Non RPS Member at a cost of £5.0

Dear RPS Members

I would like to remind you of this very special event to support Central Region AGM to be held 19th June 2016

We have arranged a very exciting day and have invited two very special guest speakers to join us.

Christine Widdall MPAGB EFIAP FBPE

With Christine's simple and straightforward approach she captures places, people and moments in time and makes them as beautiful and interesting as possible. Christine started taking pictures and learned how to process them in the darkroom from the age of about 5.

The excitement of taking and making her images is Christine's driving force. Christine's pictures have been primarily made for her own pleasure, some are “competition” pictures, others just an expression of her enjoyment of a day.

It is hoped that Christine will inspire all to go beyond the objective of recording of facts and, to use self-expression to provide an interpretation of the subjects, experimenting to see what can be achieved with blends of images from different times and different places.


Terry is a photographer based in the Northwest of England, and holds distinction awards FRPS, MPAGB, FBPE, EFIAP, ASWPP.

Terry was the L&CPU Print Worker of the Year in 2014 and Photographer of the Year in 2014. He works commercially as an architectural photographer and also shoots professional sports supplying a number of UK press agencies with images.

It is hoped that the depth and breadth of Terry's work will inspire you all to develop your approach to image taking and for all to realise their potential through Terry's life experiences.

The day will commence at 10.00 am.

Each member is invited to bring 3 prints of their choice to be displayed and enjoyed by all other members.

This exhibition will be judged by both Christine and Terry with a thrilling first prize.

Following the AGM will be the Lectures by Christine and Terry.

The day is planned to finish around 16.30

Tea, coffee and soft drinks will be available but please bring your own picnic/sandwiches.

AGM please advise two weeks in advance of any items to be added to the agenda.
