”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.“

”Last summer, when I came to live in England, one of the first things I did was check out the RPS website and look for photography activities in my area. I went on two outings and I joined straight away, I was hooked! Three months later I got my Licentiateship distinction. Becoming a member of the RPS gave me a purpose, helped me focus on my photography: it changed my life.“
