Welcome to the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers. If you are looking for a photographer for your wedding or family portrait then visit our members directory to find a member near you. Our members photograph thousands of weddings and can provide beautiful lasting memories of your 'special day'.
When there is such a choice of representative organisations out there you may ask
yourself, why the SWPP?
To us the answer is very simple. If you are a newcomer to the industry or considering a career change then we offer the most comprehensive range of educational seminars by inspirational speakers.
The profile of our membership contains many individuals who have enjoyed active careers in many of the traditional 'professions' and to whom 'professionalism' is second nature.
We are dedicated to providing quality training and mentoring to all that ask and want to progress in Professional Photography without prejudice or discrimination.
If you are already in practice and want to gain that all important edge over your competitors, then we can help you too.
Our invaluable 'Mentor Me' programme enables our members to receive a one to one appraisal of their work and advice for progression. All evaluation reports include recommendations for participation in training programmes pertinent to personal professional development and it doesn't just stop at reaching Licentiateship. In fact, that is only the beginning on a journey of lifelong learning.
As we look to the future, the Societies Convention January 2014 is set to become the most memorable gathering in the history of worldwide Professional Photography with a stunning array of speakers from all over the world.
We have attracted the support of over 200 of the most influential companies supplying goods and services to professionals worldwide in a trade show that promises to deliver face to face contact with an energetic and aspiring market.
