Message from the CEOWelcome to The Society of International Media and Press Photographers , we look forward to sharing the passion of photography with you.
With over 30 years of experience, we are delighted to provide our members with the very best in benefits of membership, education and support.
Our highly skilled network of internationally renowned lecturers and advisers are all committed to help you and your business succeed with positive growth in what is a competitive market place.
However, progress within your business is a two-way thing. To coin an old phrase ‘you only get back what you put in’ is more than true. Your knowledge and expertise will be exponentially increased if you attend the major programmes that we arrange.
The largest of the programmes is the Convention, held in London each year, and is the ideal opportunity for you to learn from the experts. The event is by far the largest gathering of like-minded professional photographers eager to share their knowledge and friendship. Attendees have the opportunity to meet representatives from all the major manufacturers from all over the world.
Members are positively encouraged to enter our various photographic competitions, and gain endorsements and feedback on their skill levels. In addition, to assist members, a structured system of benchmarking is offered through the qualifications structure.
To help members to achieve their goals, the mentoring programme has been developed to give positive feedback with in-depth critiques and analysis of work, along with guidance on how a member’s skill level can be enhanced.
Our Head Office support team are there to help and support you. Do get involved and you too will reap the rewards of your investment of being a member of The Society of International Media and Press Photographers .
Regards, Colin Jones - CEO
