The Royal Photographic Society is an Educational Charity promoting both the art and science of photography. Membership is open to all, whatever level of experience or knowledge. No qualifications are required to join, just a passion and love for one or more of photography’s myriad of genres, technologies and applications.

Most of their members join to further their own photography and to embrace the challenge of working towards their world recognized Distinctions (LRPS, ARPS and FRPS) and Imaging Science Qualifications (QIS, GIS, AIS and ASIS).

By attending Society National, Regional and Group Events, members enjoy unparalleled opportunities to share knowledge, meet and learn from other photographers and to develop their photographic interests and skills.

Open International Print and Projected Image Exhibitions are held annually alongside an Audio Visual Festival and members’ exhibitions.

The Royal Photographic Society is well respected for its outstanding achievement in Education. Although the majority of its work focuses on supporting and organizing practical workshop and lectures it also organizes community projects and work in schools and colleges.

Their internationally renowned Awards are presented annually, recognizing the highest achievements in all fields of photography – Albert Watson HonFRPS and Annie Leibovitz HonFRPS being recent Centenary Medal recipients.

The Society has a long and proud History, established as The Photographic Society in 1853 in the pioneering days of photography, it became Royal by decree in 1894 and in 2004 it was presented with a Royal Charter. The Society’s Collection of priceless photographs and historical items is now housed at the National Media Museum, for the Nation.
