Emily Mathisen

This is Emily’s last week at the RPS, having been our Web Content Manager for the past eight years.

During her time at the RPS, Emily has overseen the design and delivery of two organisation-wide website projects, and was instrumental in transforming the RPS’s work to online delivery during the pandemic.

Throughout her eight years as the RPS's Web Content Manager, Emily’s expert and friendly support for volunteers and staff in using the website has made her an invaluable and much-loved member of our world-wide family of photographers.

She spearheaded our hugely successful Homepage Competition, which was a creative focus for so many people during the lockdown periods. Details of it are set out here.

She has also written and designed many creative articles for the website, including those listed below. Please do browse through them.

RPS President Simon Hill HonFRPS writes:

"Emily has been such a tremendous asset to the Society and has really helped to shape our online presence.  We have been so fortunate to have her as a member of the staff team and her contribution to our work will continue to be seen in the future evolution of our communications with Members and with the wider family of photographers.  Emily was always willing to go the extra mile to help our volunteers to get the very best from our website.  She will be greatly missed by our volunteers and by our staff teams.  I have no doubt that whatever her future plans, she will continue to bring success … and always with her trademark cheerfulness."

Emily leaves the RPS on 25 June 2021 and will be missed tremendously by everyone. We all wish her the best for her new projects and look forward to seeing her again very soon.
