Nationwide the GDT has 15 regional groups (RG) as well as a group of young photographers and a regional group in the Switzerland. GDT members and guests are offered the possibility to visit events hosted by any of these groups. Each regional group is led by a Head of Regional Group elected by the members of the particular group. His or her election is announced at the next general meeting of members.
Communicating the purpose and the objectives of the GDT to the general public is considered a spe- cial task of the RGs. For this reason each RG organizes regional meetings open to all GDT members within the corresponding region. Guests are very welcome except for internal meetings. Planning and organizing meetings and events is in the hands of the individual groups. Content and frequency depend on the commitment of the members.
The Heads of Regional Group are constantly in touch with the board and the GDT office to ensure the flow of information and to pass on suggestions and proposals. A list of events of each RG as well as reports of meetings and special events will be published on the GDT home page and in our members’ magazine GDT-Intern.
The range of activities has very few limits as long as they are in compliance with the statutes of the GDT. They can range from an informal exchange of views, slide shows or excursions, exhibitions and seminars to supporting a particular photographer applying for full GDT membership and productive review of pictures and much more.

Thomas Scheffel has been occupied with the subject of nature since his early youth. Many years ago, he discovered photography to capture what he sees and experiences in pictures. Being out and about in nature is a central point in Scheffel's life. Taking pictures while doing so is the big motivation, but no longer mandatory. „bigger-faster-further“ is not his goal.
