Rushden & District Photographic Society


Welcome to the Rushden & District Photographic Society's website. This site is for members, potential members, photographers who enter our national exhibition (The Rushden Open) and anyone else who has an interest in what we do.


We try to provide a varied programme to suit all kinds of photographer. Less experienced photographers are very welcome to join RDPS. There are no requirements to have any particular camera, or indeed any camera at all, and you need not know your f-stop from your elbow. We are very happy to offer coaching and advice, on an informal basis, to anyone and help you progress with your photography.


For miscellaneous remarks, pictures, etc. we have a Facebook group, so please feel free to post anything you want to say there (see menu for a link).
More structured information will be on this Web site.




Leigh Bishop - Renowned Underwater Photographer

On the 2nd December, Leigh Bishop will be at RDPS to give a talk on, and show some stunning pictures of, Underwater Photography. This is not a bit of snorkelling but the real thing deep down, with ship wrecks and so on.

Visitors are welcome to attend, and tickets are £4.00. You can buy a ticket on the door, but numbers are limited so you are strongly advised to book in advance.
Tickets from: Brenda Marshall

LEIGH BISHOP, Britain's foremost deep-wreck photographer, has been diving for 19 years, including the ground-breaking HMS King Edward VII expedition in 1997. He has specialised in exploring notable liner wrecks including the Britannic, Lusitania, Transylvania, Justicia and Egypt and discovered the cargo vessel Flying Enterprise. Leigh is also a full-time fire-fighter.
