Twickenham & Richmond Photographic Society invites you to their Virtual Exhibition:
After a one year gap due to the pandemic, Richmond & Twickenham Photographic Society’s popular annual exhibition will be going virtual this year, running on-line from Thursday 1 April to Thursday 20 May.
The show, which boasts over 300 images, is set in a 3D museum space utilising the Kunstmatrix platform, so visitors can explore the rooms independently or be guided around the exhibition. It’s free and can be accessed from a link on the society’s website: www.rtps.org.uk
Visitors will be able to immerse themselves in some stunning landscapes, beautiful wildlife and some thought provoking portraits and street scenes from a photographic society which is one of the largest and oldest in the country. Once again the work of GCSE and A level students at St. Catherine’s School for Girls in Twickenham will be going on display.
The society has around 120 members from beginners to professionals, meeting every Thursday between 8 and 10pm. New members are warmly welcome and should email the club at firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
The society’s annual exhibition is normally held at the Landmark Arts Centre in Teddington and hopes to return there in 2022. And while no digital encounter can fully emulate the physical experience of visiting an exhibition, the virtual platform provided by Kunstmatrix, comes very close.
I thought we would slip in a Multimedia Group meeting ahead of Easter as the 1 Minute AVs and PhotoBooks are due in on 11th April. Entries are already arriving but if you have any queries or ideas you would like to share with the group do come along. You can use the group to sound out your ideas and get feedback.

David Abbott thought members might be interested in this newletter from Glyn Dewis:
Hi David, Thought I’d catch up as I’ve not emailed for a couple of weeks or so having been on my own lockdown-lockdown finishing writing my latest book.Happy to say that it’s all done and now with the publishers to do their magic deciphering my words, page layout and everything else that goes into it.That’s not the reason for me getting in touch though; I wanted to give you the heads-up about the FREELightroom Virtual Summit coming in May.This is a FREE to watch event over 5 days (3rd – 7th May) with 40 classes and 30 hours of Lightroom classes covering all sorts of stuff like a Printing Masterclass, Colour Grading, Black & White, Range Masks, Timelapses, Dodging and Burning, Importing and Organising and so on… I’m genuinely excited about this one because this is 100% for people who are into photography (Beginner thru Advanced)…
My Landscape Photography Journey. It had only been 10 days that I’d locked myself away for, but not having the camera in my hands was making me feel a little unsettled. Maybe I just needed the ‘escapism’ that being out gives, I don’t know, but for me a positive from all the restrictions is how its opened my eyes to other areas of photography that as a portrait guy I’d never really bothered with. I’ve even started photographing birds…and I’m loving it!I speak about this kind of stuff in a new video I’ve put together and that’s premiering on the Castle Cameras YouTube Page on Saturday 20th; I’ll be online at the same time in the chat if you fancy a catch up.Here’s the link to Castle Cameras YouTube Page: LINK
Right, I’ll crack on and leave you to itTake care of yourself and speak soon, Glyn
Our speaker will be Anna Fox. Our program for 2021 is following the development of a project: Concept, Research and Execution.
Behind the Image – the making of documentary photography projects
What happens behind the scenes in the life of a documentary photographer?
Where do ideas come from? How do projects develop? There are big stories behind the works of documentary photographers and Anna Fox will be exploring some of these in relation to her own work. This session is designed to get us all thinking about what it is to make a set of images work together to tell a story.
In the second half of our meeting we will have interactive discussion on our member’s work. We encourage members to present their projects at the meeting, whatever the stage of progress, from ideas, through work in progress, to completed projects.
It’s a real pleasure for me, in this unusual year as chair, to be able to offer all our congratulations to Lorna Brown our newest Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society. This is a very high honour indeed and richly deserved, so well done Lorna.
Some words from Lorna Brown FRPS:
I’m quite overwhelmed to have been awarded a fellowship of the RPS today – and one of the first to ‘benefit’, if benefit it was, to sit in on the online assessment, which has resulted in quite shredded nerves.
There have been many who have helped me on this long journey to whom I owe thanks. Iain McGowan who first recognised the potential in some of the first images, Janey Devine for encouragement in developing the concept and most recently her optimism in the outcome, Graham Sergeant and John Bradshaw for everything I learnt from them at the RPS Group and to Dave Abbott for his quiet support and encouragement.
Unlike previous assessments, the award is immediate and there is no drawn out period of secrecy, so I am delighted to sign off for the first time, just one hour and 41 minutes after the assessment panel gave the verdict as Lorna Brown FRPS.
