John Margetts LRPS
At the 'Think Photography 2010' show at Sandwell in the West Midlands, Clive Haynes the Chair of the Digital Imaging Group appointed me to start this new Digital Imaging Group regional centre in the East of England known as the RPS Eastern Digital Imaging Centre
As I live in Cambridge it seems sensible to start with the Centre being based near here, but I am willing to consider other locations.
Later on in the year our new centre will be holding a number of meetings to help and encourage members of the Digital Imaging Group with their photography. These meeting will held at venues that are easy to find and within a reasonable distance of most members.

Rosanne Tempest-Holt LRPS
I bought my first camera in 1981 and found I had a flair for photography, and a passion which has never left me. By 1987 I had put my name in the Yellow Pages and started earning a living in Cambridge from people pictures. Without any formal training this was a steep learning curve. I persuaded Barclays to give me a loan to buy studio lights - when I had no visible means of support and they took a chance on me and it worked! This was 'boom-time' in Cambridge and you couldn't go wrong. There were few mobile phones and point-and-shoot cameras about so I was asked to do what everyone is doing for themselves today. In 1996 I moved into weddings, which took ten years off my life each week-end - but I loved it. We have now retired to Barrow near Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk and photography is just for fun!

First, I am very pleased to say that I was successful with my LRPS assessment recently.
I specialise in landscape, travel and visual art photography and have been shooting digital since about 2003 once the technology had matured sufficiently. I am currently looking for new challenges such as running workshops in Yosemite and Utah and commercial studio work. I recently succumbed to ‘the lure of the dark slide’, and own a 5x4 large format camera, I find this contemplative approach (it takes up to an hour to set up and focus) makes me ‘think’ more about the art. I'm also interested in percussion and play in a local Blue’s Band.
