Royal Photographic Society
I decided to join the RPS for a year to see whether I get much benefit from the access to tuition and mentoring available in certain areas. I will probably apply for one of the distinctions (Licentiateship / LRPS) as a vehicle to drive improvements in my skills. I may choose an aspect of portraiture as my specialist area but this remains to be seen.
The RPS seems to be an excellent society so far and I look forward to giving further updates.
