HRH The Princess of Wales
In 1853, the year in which our Society was founded, Queen Victoria became our first Patron and since then we have been humbled and honoured to have enjoyed a long and unbroken line of royal Patrons. In 1952, following the death of her father, King George VI, the new Queen Elizabeth II became Patron of the Society and remained our Patron for 67 years. In 2019, Queen Elizabeth II passed the Patronage to HRH The Duchess of Cambridge.
‘The interchange of thought and experience among Photographers’. 1853 and the founding of the Photographic Society
Throughout our 168-year history, the Royal Photographic Society has grown and evolved alongside the practice of photography. This evolution has been driven by the ambitions of our members, by leaps in technology, and by changes in society.
The RPS is a worldwide community of thousands of people who love photography and who believe in its importance as an artistic, scientific and expressive medium. Our Regional hubs, international Chapters and specialist Groups are all led by volunteers, working with the staff team. Many eminent photographers also volunteer to help us with Distinctions assessments, advice, talks and mentorship. This spirit of generosity has been the hallmark of the RPS since its foundation.
The Photographic Society, as The RPS was originally known, was not the first photographic society but it was the first to be formally organised to have been in continuous existence in the same form since its foundation. It took only a few years from the announcement of photography in 1839 for the first loose gathering of amateur photographers to come together.
The Society has evolved as the interests and needs of its members have changed and, particularly, as photography itself has changed – not least since the mid-1980s. As The Society enters its 170th year it is an opportunity to look back to 1853 and how the Society was formed and what it achieved during its first year.
The entire experience of dealing with Glen, from the very start to the final product, was absolutely stellar and far exceeded expectations. I would, without reservation or hesitation, recommend Glen for any event photography needs!

Glen is just amazing. I got to the studio knowing what I needed but not what I wanted. Glen had many wonderful ideas and I agreed to all his suggestions. I'm so happy with the results, he made me look my best! Thanks Glen! I'll see you again soon!
What a fun and memorable blast! Thank you for such a playfully supportive and professional experience. I’m beaming with pride at the results of our collaboration, and can’t wait to go back! This is the studio experience I’ve always been dreaming of.
Glen is the consummate professional. Moreover, his affable personality made me feel comfortable during the shoot, making the photos even more natural. Friendly, caring, professional and honest. What more can someone ask for in any business?
Glen did an amazing job with my Real Estate pictures/headshots. It really shows how passionate he is with his work and the quality of the pictures is outstanding! Got lots of feedback from him during the session and felt very comfortable in front of the camera.
AMAZING all around! Glen provided a very relaxing and welcoming atmosphere from the moment we started. The professionalism & knowledge he has clearly shines through his work! There are not enough words to describe how wonderful this experience has been!
Glen is one of the easiest people to talk with, he makes you feel comfortable, and his jokes? He certainly knows how to make you laugh. Who would have thought having professional photos would be fun? I would absolutely recommend Glen without hesitation.
Very positive experience and amazing quality photos highly recommended!

The photos were all incredible. Glen is a master...and it's hard to believe that he has only started to get serious about his photography recently and is completely self-taught!! Seriously, I can't recommend iglen Studios enough.
Professional, Talented, Kind, Phenomenal are just a few of the words to describe Glen. From the background music to the conversations will help keep you relaxed & make the session feel natural. Glen is truly an amazing person, can't wait to work with you again!
Awesome photographer! Makes you totally forget the camera is there!

I could not be happier with the results and everyone that see the shots said that the photos looked nature and were just me. Thanks for making the process relaxed and the images that you caught were amazing. I can't wait until our next shoot!
Glen did an amazing photoshoot of our house. If you want a photographer that pays attention to details, who’s meticulous and will capture the happiest moment of life - iglen Studios is the photographer to choose.
