About Us

Welcome to the Southern Region.

We are proud to be part of one of the largest regions by area size, boasting one of the greater regional membership counts, standing at almost 1000 RPS subscribers.

Our area is vast, covering Hampshire, Dorset, and parts of West Sussex, Berkshire, Wiltshire, on the mainland. We then extend out southward to the Isle of Wight, to as far south as the Channel Islands. We are neighbours with the South-East Region, Thames Valley and the South-West Region.

The Southern Region offers an exciting programme of events throughout the year. We aim to ensure the region is active for all members - no matter where in the region you live and no matter where your interest in photography lies.

Corroboration with Special Interest Groups help to provide a programme of events which can cover topics not normally available through the activities of local camera clubs.

The region is made up of a dedicated team of volunteers who all work together to maintain a regional community that we can all be proud of. If you wish to be part of this, or if you have any questions about the region, feel free to contact me at southern@rps.org.

You can follow us on Facebook where you can read the news and any important updates. Along with our ongoing blog posts, email circulations and newsletters, Facebook is another great way to keep up to date on what is happening in the region. Facebook is a simple and accessible way to stay in touch share ideas and comments.
