Introduction to the RPS

The Royal Photographic Society was formed as The Photographic Society in 1853 with Queen Victoria and Prince Albert as patrons. It was granted the use of the title 'Royal' by decree in 1894. The Society's mission today, as in 1853, is 'to promote the Art and Science of Photography'.

Membership is open to everyone with a real interest in photography - and that includes newcomers to photography, teachers, historians and scientists, as well as dedicated amateurs and full-time professionals.
