Distinction Stories

Olivio Argenti FRPS

”I have been a member on the Contemporary panel for the last two years. Apart from the honour of the appointment, this experience has enhanced both my approach to, and critical understanding of, photography.“

Olivio Argenti FRPS, Contemporary Distinctions Panel Member

”I recently attended three RPS workshops. All three workshops were brilliant all tutors had a vast amount of experience and knowledge in their respective field, which was passed on to the delegates... I was so impressed with the workshops I am already looking for one to attend in the new year.“
