There are three different memberships choices for joining The NPS, you will be asked to choose which level to join at during the sign up process. An overview is given below for reference.
Professional Photographer Membership
This membership is only available to photographers who can supply us with current insurance details and are professional photographers who earn income from photography. Members joining at this level must attain Licentiate level as a minimum within 6 months of joining.
Members will have Professional Photographer displayed against their listing in our directory and will appear before regular listings. Professional Photographers will also have a larger portfolio of photographs on display.
Members joining at this level will also receive preference places on training courses that we run.
Members will also get reduced membership with The International Federation of Professional Photographers.
Finally of course Professional Photographers can also advertise themselves as NPS Professional Photographers.
This membership is the standard full membership of The NPS. Members at this level will enjoy all the benefits of membership and can enter our qualifications system. This annual membership can be paid monthly or yearly.
Student / Enthusiast / Retired
This is a concessionary discount for students in full time education, enthusiasts or those from overseas. Members at this level will not appear in the directory, get a free website or have access to the discounts from suppliers. It is otherwise no different from standard membership.
