The Societies' Forum

Keeping in touch with fellow photographers on The Societies Forum, we believe is one of the most significant benefits of membership.

Whatever stage you are at in your career, forum membership gives you the opportunity to:

  • Be at the forefront of knowledge sharing and best practice thinking
  • Keep up to date with current photo issues
  • Debate with experts in specialist areas
  • Network with other photographers
  • Add to your continuous professional development

The weekly competitions are popular with the members. Each week a new theme is selected for both the Wedding and General competitions and members are able to vote for the winning image from the previous weeks entries.
