The Royal Photographic Society is a chartered educational charity. CACC covers much of the Society’s Thames Valley Region. Members receive a Journal and their regional newsletter. Members may also subscribe to one or more Special Interest Groups, which operate nationally and issue their own Journals. Some Groups run localised events. All Society events are open equally to non-members as well as members.
The levels are Licentiate (LRPS), Associate (ARPS) and Fellow (FRPS). Information and support is available for applicants. Non-members must join the Society to have a distinction confirmed. Only those remaining in membership may use an RPS distinction in their correspondence, website, business, or on any photographic work.
The Society has prepared material suitable for use as a Club lecture evening. The lecture is about the Society itself, and especially the Distinctions system. The Society requires that the content is presented by one of its approved speakers. PAGB expenses rates apply, although the cost is currently covered by Regional sponsorship. Events will be advertised on the RPS website, and must be open to visitors without charge.
RPS Certificate in Photography
Digital Photography: Creating and Sharing Better Images is a 10-week Open University course designed to help people new to digital photography and those looking to improve existing skills. It will develop participants’ technical and visual skills through weekly practical assignments. Students will join an online community of their peers, to share, comment and learn from each other’s work, and they will receive feedback from expert photographers on their final assessment. The 10-week course will cost £200 with participants working through The Open University’s online platform. Students who successfully complete the course will be entitled to an RPS Certificate in Photography.
