Treasurer : Justin Cliffe LRPS

‘I have been interested in photography since my late teens however family and work commitments took then priority and I’ve really only got back to it over the past 5 years since retiring from a life in the City.

I joined the RPS, and the DVJ group, about 4 years ago and was awarded my LRPS in 2013. I am also a member of Woking Photographic Society and the Street Photography London collective.

My particular interest is ‘street photography’, something that I’m able to combine with my part time work for a charity in London.’

Webmaster : John Margetts ARPS

John’s interest in photography started at school, when an enlightened teacher started a photography class. The magic of seeing images suddenly appearing in the developing dish was, for John, a wonderful thing. From school John went on to study photography at college, passing the examinations for the Institute of British Photographers. After leaving college, John spent many years in the photographic industry and eventually opened his own studio in West London. Having rejoined the RPS in 2009, John started to work towards his Licentiateship and he achieved this in May 2010. In 2013, London Underground was celebrating its 150th anniversary, which proved to be a real inspiration for John. As a result, this was the subject for his Associateship, which he gained in April 2013.
