The Societies of Photographers unveil new logo

The fastest growing worldwide association for serious photographers has introduced a new corporate brand logo.

The Societies new logo has been designed to reflect the growth of the eight individual photographic societies with a strong symbol that becomes memorable and recognisable.

The logo has been designed to work across all print and digital platforms. Scalability was a crucial factor to ensure it would work small on a phone and large at exhibitions.

Designed by an extended family member, Ryan Jones who is a design director at a London design agency, the new Societies brand injects a strength and modernity that will last for years to come.

''Over the past 12 years, the previous logo served us well and helped us build the largest photographic association and conference in Europe. The development of our brand identity showcases The Societies of Photographers as an influential, established and forward-thinking photographic association'' said Phil Jones, The Societies of Photographers CEO.

Every show will be different as it will be inspired by the host venue, the needs of the audience, the weather, available light, available outfits, the model....indeed all the elements that as a working photographer we need to consider to get the best for our clients.

Whatever your level of competence there will be something for you and John guarantees you will be educated and entertained in equal measure. Bring your camera and a notebook and a speedlight if you have one. All off camera flash instruction will be done using Elinchrom Quadra's but techniques shown are equally applicable to speedlight setups. You will get shooting opportunities during the day.
