Licentiate of the Royal Photographic Society



Back in March I posted that my photographs were ready to be sent to the Royal Photographic Society in order to be assessed for the award of Licentiate. I’ve been a little tardy in getting back on this, but on 15 April I was informed that subject to authorisation by the Council of the Society I had been awarded the distinction. A couple of weeks later I received confirmation and the society’s certificate for Licentiate.

It had taken me 18 months and many, many hours of short-listing, processing, reprocessing, distinction workshops and finally the submission and when I was informed I had obtained the ‘L’,  I couldn’t even manage a triumphant ‘whoop’ as at the time I had probably the worst case of man-flu known in the history of mankind.

But I was so pleased to get this award, it is an acknowledgment by an organisation recognized all over the world that my photography is of a sufficient standard to warrant the award of one of their distinctions.

Next up – the associateship of the society.

You can see my full licentiate panel and photographs on my website.

  1. Thanks Rod. The associateship is going to be very,very difficult. The first problem is to choose a subject or theme and the you have to take 15 exceptional photos. No pressure then.
