Member Quotes


”The RPS have a commitment to supporting and nurturing emerging photographic talent, and I have experienced first hand the way in which they implement these ambitions.“

”When I joined the RPS as an overseas member I was not really sure of whether it was going to be worthwhile. Being part of the RPS for now three years has given me many opportunities and enhanced my knowledge of, and interest in, photography. It has indeed been worthwhile.“

Olivio Argenti FRPS, Italian Chapter Organiser
