The Society's remit is to promote the art and science of photography with the belief that no one is too young or too old to learn and enjoy image making and appreciation.
Photography, like most things, is ever changing and modern technologies are taking it to new extremes which were once not thought possible. The Royal Photographic Society aims to keep up with these changes by providing information, training and advice for all those with a keen interest in photography from the amateur enthusiast to the seasoned professional.
The Society will continue its overall aim to promote high standards in photography in a broad and accessible way. It now has a purpose built lecture theatre and education suite fitted out with equipment and software for digital imaging. This enables The Society to deliver a programme of practical educational courses and events for members and non-members throughout the year.
For further information on workshops and lectures organised by The Society in the Bath area please visit our workshops page.
For workshops organised by the RPS Groups and Regions please visit our events page.
The Royal Photographic Society is well respected for its outstanding achievement in education. Although the majority of its work focuses on supporting and organising practical workshops/lectures it also organises community projects and work in schools and colleges.
The Society plans to continue with its investment into formal and informal education using its wealth of resources from its historical roots including the 250,000 images and artefacts from its world famous Collection now housed at the National Media Museum in Bradford.

Over 350 students from Backwell school and the University of the West of England had the chance to hear Tom Hunter talk about his life and work. Tom was a huge hit at both venues and also spent time with smaller groups of students discussing their individual projects. These talk were funded by the RPS and are part of a larger project that is helping to inspire young people to take photographs of their own city in their own way. The work will continue till September during which other schools will be involved and a traveling exhibition created that will go to each participating venue. In October there will be a larger exhibition exhibited in Bristol.
