Welcome to the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers

Providing Unique Photographic Training Join Today

The Fastest Growing Worldwide Association for Serious Photographers

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'.

Portrait style image

Our organisation represents wedding and portrait 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.
