North East Documentary Group
DG member Gordon Bates, together with other RPS documentary photographers in the north of England, set up the North East Documentary Group (NEDG), a regional sub-group of the RPS Documentary Group, at a meeting on 10 July.
The NEDG decided it will meet about every three months to share and discuss their work as well as organise photoshoots in the region. Several possibilities are already being explored. The next meeting will be on Saturday, 26 September.
A private flickr group has been set up to enable members to share images. A new sub-section of the RPS website will be set up shortly, as will as an email, for the sub-group
NEDG will also circulate information on events in which members might be interested, as well as give members the opportunity to meet each other on an individual basis.
Anyone with an interest in documentary photography is welcome to attend a meeting free of charge to see if they would like to join the RPS Documentary Group (see the website at http://rps.org/special-interest-groups/documentary for further information on becoming a member).
Until the new email is set up you can contact Gordon via the firstname.lastname@example.org email.
