John P Margetts ARPS



Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving.

What I capture in my camera is captured forever.

My photographs bring back the memory of little things,

long after I have forgotten all about them.


















Below is small selection of my photography which I hope you enjoy.

 About my RPS


 When I first joined the The Royal Photographic Society (RPS) I made the decision to attempt and gain at least one of their distinctions.


The first of these is the Licentiateship which, after a lot of hard work, I achieved at my first attempt. Having gained this I am entitled to use the letterers LRPS after my name.

This success made me more determined to try and achieve their next level, the Associateship, to achieve this I knew they would require a much higher standard of work.


My panel of 15 images taken during the 150th year celebrations of the London Underground showing how a variety people use the 'Tube'. This was put forward to the RPS and fortunately it resulted in another successful submission which, in turn, gained me my Associateship (ARPS).


This panel is shown below.

A very a short biography of me.


I have been engaged with some sort of Photography in one form or another over many years, from the days of film and darkroom techniques through to the High Tech modern Digital cameras of today.


From school I went on to college in order to study photography and after leaving college I became a full time professional with my own studio.


Over the years I have been engaged in many genres of photography including wedding, portraiture, commercial and industrial photography, and throughout this long period the magic, passion and enthusiasm for photography has never diminished.


However, I have always enjoyed taking photographs of people and this has been developed in  recent years to become the type of photography that motivates and inspires me the most and one from which I gain the greatest amount of pleasure. 


Doing what you like, when you like, is 'Freedom'

but enjoying what you do is 'Happiness'

"That's why I enjoy my photography"
