TIME-LAPSE: Can you help?
Do you have experience in documenting the fitting-out of a building by time-lapse photography? As the work on the Society's new headquarters in Bristol begins we would like to find a member who would be interested in documenting this between September and December using time-lapse. If you're interested in learning more email Michael Pritchard or call 01225 325730. 
The Society's recently formed Women in Photographyspecial interest group has a number of events coming up which include: 
31st August - Hummingbird Day
For many of us on this date every year our thoughts will turn to Princess Diana; for Denise Wozniak, August 31st was the day in 1994 that her baby daughter Katie died from AIDS.  Denise has been nominated as one of the RPS Hundred Heroines because of her courage in using photography to overcome depression and post-traumatic stress following this personal tragedy.

Among Denise’s many heroinic deeds is encouraging people to be creative on 31st August, which she has called Hummingbird Day (to find out why, listen to her TEDx talk

We’re thrilled that Denise has joined both the Society and the Women in Photography group, so this year we are making 31st August our own Hummingbird Day.  We will be asking people to be creative and to (re)discover beauty in the world by taking an image on the day that they feel is beautiful, and uploading it to Instagram using the hashtag RPS_Hummingbird_Day.  The image doesn’t have to be objectively beautiful as long as it is beautiful to the photographer - an old and comfy pair of slippers can be as lovely as a rose in the eye of the beholder!  Find out more here.

3 October - Inaugural Lecture
Our Honorary Chair Karen Knorr FRPS will give inaugural lecture for the Women in Photography SIG followed by a panel discussion. The event will take place between 2-5pm at the London College of Communication (part of the University of the Arts).  Book here.
