”The best thing about joining the RPS has been the opportunity to meet some wonderful people. Not only have I been privileged to rub shoulders with some of the greatest photographers of our time, but amongst the members I've found some really good mates. I think we are bonded together for eternity through our shared passion for all things photographic.“
