Eastern Area Group members lunching in the sun at our October 2013 get-together.

The East Anglia group meets at least 4 times a year in members’ homes for an honest but friendly appreciation of each other’s work as well as a meal and an opportunity to ‘put the world right’. Of necessity therefore, these meetings are restricted to about 12 members.

However, there are 18 members of the group at present, so some restrictions will apply.

We also have occasional days out to photograph a location (usually with a good fish and chips cafe).

If you are interested in joining this group, please send your details to Barry Freeman.

A member in the Norfolk area is looking to form a group; if you would like to have your details passed to him, please email the Membership Secretary.

Also email me if you are interested in setting up a local group yourself; the committee will give you all the help it can.

RPS CREATIVE GROUP
HOW TO START A SMALL AREA OR HOME GROUP

If you would like to start a small group in your area, meeting in members’ homes and talking about creative photography here is our advice:
Ask the newsletter editor to include an article in the next issue of Creative Eye, and the webmaster to put a request on this page, asking for people in your area to respond directly to you. Ask people:
   Are they interested in forming a group?
   If so, when i.e. day and time?
   Are they willing to host an occasional meeting?
The instigator may initially have to host the first meeting and organise the group, but if you have 4 to 6 meetings a year it is not an onerous task.
You could go on outings occasionally and have a set subject for work at meetings.
You could get an enormous amount of pleasure out of these meetings and everyone could improve their photography.
