About Us

The SW region covers Devon and Cornwall and we try to cover all parts of the area on photographic trips. With a large variety of coast, moorland and tourist areas we have much to keep us busy photographically.

We arrange field trips throughout the summer months, interspersed with an annual after Christmas get together outside somewhere in early January which usually ends up with a convivial lunch in a pub. Throughout the autumn/winter period speakers are arranged along with Distinctions Advisory days, lectures and we are now building a relationship with the University of Plymouth where we use their facilities to host a keynote speaker. In addition members of the committee are prepared to visit camera clubs to talk about the Distinctions which are available through the Society.

Please see the events page to find dates and preferably advise Martin if you intend to join as it is useful to have an idea of numbers, but please do contact a committee member if you need any further help or advice.

The region also runs 3 travelling print folios, one of which is purely mono, and if anyone is interested in joining, please contact 

Margaret Hocking, bosrowynek@btinternet.com for further information.

The Travel Group are holding a weekend in Falmouth later this year, please see the Travel Group pages for details of the event or the blog giving details
