Member stories

Tony Cutler LRPS

”Joining The Society some 12 years ago has opened doors to photographic opportunities which earlier I could only dream about. The formation of a German Chapter has proven to be the dot above the „i“ with the many personal contacts, the regular exchange of information and ideas and project work for exhibitions and competitions. “

”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.“
