London, Street

RPS London, Street

This is a ‘Street’ focused group created within the London Region to cater for the resurgent interest in Street Photography.

There are many opinions as what Street Photography is and many resources on the web which attempt to define it, which are an interesting way of whiling away a couple of hours! I have my own opinions but also feel that to define it may also be to kill it! My view, at the present time, is to leave definitions to the ‘pixel peepers’ and provide, instead, an opportunity for people to practise their own style and persuasion in terms of what they shoot in the street, as a regular event.  

We have run street walks, and the occasional workshop, once a month since April 2014, and continue to do so in many iconic areas of London. These take place on the second Saturday of the month when a maximum of 20 people are given a start and finish point, information on street photography practice including legal guidelines, and hints and tips on composition, equipment and camera settings.  There is no formal membership of the group, but we do like you to book in via the event booking system to manage the attendance.   

The general aims and objectives of the group are …

To be a focus for RPS Street orientated activities

To be a source for people interested in this genre to exchange ideas and learn

To practise the art of Street Photography on a regular basis

To display the group’s work on the web and periodically in exhibitions and other outlets to be agreed

To encourage new members into the RPS

The London Street Walks are generally free to Members and non-Members alike but as an RPS member you receive the RPS Journal and regular updates from The RPS. You also have access to the member only pages of the RPS web site. In the event that charges are required for anything the Street Group promotes then a Member discount is usually applied.
