  1. Completely underwhelmed to be honest. Nothing really on offer and no tangible benefits for two organisations who have customers 6000 miles apart.

    1. Hi Jayne,

      I see this as a great opportunity to see other styles of photography. no matter what field you are in you must surely benefit from seeing how others tackle the same subjects. New ideas will naturally flow from the images and articles you will be able to read for FREE in WPPI’s monthly magazine, Rangefinder. I joined WPPI fifteen years ago and it changed the whole way I thought about my photography. My clients loved my new style and my pictures became different and better than my competitors. This powered my business and made me the photographer I am today.
      i was also able to enter the WPPI (members only) Competitions and when I won an Award i could rightly claim that I was an International Award winning Photographer.
      I feel that this merger is good news because we don’t have to pay anything extra for it (just email phil@swpp.co.uk and say enroll me with WPPI) and the education alone should boost everyone’s photography to a higher level.

  2. New contents make a positive impact on someone and allows an attention to focus on. Good idea.

  3. This is GREAT!!!! i will seriously consider joining after I finish planning, and shooting, my daughter’s wedding in August of this year! 😉 thank you for the invite!!!
