LRPS for Amit Roy

We are very happy to report that the Royal Photographic Society has confirmed that CPS member Amit Roy was successful in his application for Licentiate of The Royal Photographic Society in July.


Amit’s panel was assessed in early July at Bath on the RPS Assessment Day. Amit, along with Vic Hainsworth,  and Tony Bramley,  attended the day and were glad to see the panel passed the first stage of the process. This was followed by the decision being ratified by RPS Council a week later.


Amit has had a long term ambition to achieve this and has been working hard over the last couple of seasons to produce a panel. The committee and I am sure all members congratulate Amit on his fabulous achievement.

Well done Amit.

The Club 'Project'

Dynamic person required by the EAF

Due to the relative unpopularity of the set subject or themed competition evenings, it was decided that, from this season they were no longer to be included in the programme. Instead, a subject for an ongoing ‘project’ would be chosen, and this season it is ‘Street Photography’.

The idea is that those wishing to take part will produce images as and when they wish, and will have the opportunity to present some of these on a special club evening on May 1st.

Images can also be posted on the Society’s Flickr and Facebook pages. Our annual competition with Colchester twin town Wetzlar (Germany) also has the theme ‘Street Photography’ this year, so in March, members will be invited to submit images for consideration to represent the club.
This idea is designed to get you out-there with your camera and then hopefully to share with us of some of your efforts at a special showing on 1st May.

Do you have what it takes?

The EAF is looking for a dynamic person to take over the post of Exhibition Secretary from Naomi Saul who is standing down after five successful years in the post.


Can you help them find the right person to take on this exciting challenge?


Naomi will continue in the post for the 2018 event but they need someone to act as her "shadow" during this time and then be ready to pick up the reins for the 2019 production.


If there is someone in the club who may be willing to join the EAF Executive in the role of Exhibition Secretary please get in touch with Naomi Saul at:  or Sue Dobson at:

Paul Radden LRPS, DPAGB, EFIAP, President-elect and Judges Officer of the EAF has requested that the event depicted on this accompanying poster together with this application form is brought to the notice of members.

You will find a full description of what these workshops are about on pages 16/17 of the last
EAF bulletin. If there are any potential candidates with the attributes and skills required to become a judge then it is said that you will leave an event of this kind with a profound appreciation of what a taxing and difficult task judging can be, but also a very rewarding one.
