The National Photographic Society believes that quality training should be available to everyone, regardless of their level of ability.  The society promotes the learning of photography as both an art and a skill.

As with all skilled crafts photography is a constantly changing and evolving art form.  The last decade and a half have seen changes happen at an incredible pace and keeping abreast of the latest changes and being able to pass these on is a skill all in itself.

All of the trainers that The NPS use are approved by us into The NPS Accredited Trainer Program, this ensures that our members receive the highest quality advice and training.

All NPS members have access to a panel of industry experts in a number of fields.

We have experts on the following :-

    • Posing & composition
    • Lighting
    • Photoshop
    • Album design
    • Sales
    • Web design

Members can use our Ask The Experts page to get answers to their questions.
