If you are looking for a photographer for your wedding or family portrait then visit our photographers' directory to find a member near you. Our members photograph thousands of weddings and can provide beautiful lasting memories of your 'special day'.

The SWPP is one of the worlds largest organisations for pro and aspiring photographers. Members receive a range of benefits to help them in their careers and businesses. Members have access to our photographic Forum, comprehensive listing on our web site, online photographic gallery, Professional Imagemaker magazine and a great deal more photo services.

Our organisation represents republisher photographers. Benefits of membership include business listing, bi-monthly magazine, mentoring programme, seminars, competitions and much, much more.

When there is such a choice of representative organisations out there you may ask yourself, why the SWPP?

To us the answer is very simple. If you are a newcomer to the industry or considering a career change then we offer the most comprehensive range of educational seminars by inspirational speakers.

The profile of our membership contains many individuals who have enjoyed active careers in many of the traditional 'professions' and to whom 'professionalism' is second nature.

We are dedicated to providing quality training and mentoring to all that ask and want to progress in professional photography without prejudice or discrimination.

If you are already in practice and want to gain that all important edge over your competitors, then we can help you too.
