By becoming a member of the Association of Photographers you automatically become part of a wider community of other photographers' agents, photographers, assisting photographers as well as the photographic industry as a whole.
The AOP not only looks out for the best interests of photographers but for their agents too. We have the knowledge and experience to help make sure photographers' best interests are protected. We speak with the combined voices of our membership and we are recognised by legislators, governments and other trade bodies as the credible, authoritative and respected professional association that promotes and protects our members and influences matters relating to photography.
If you are interested in supporting the AOP and its work including our stand on copyright laws we will welcome your application.
You must be proposed and seconded by two AOP Photographer members.
Agent membership does not extend to those photographers the agent represents. We ask Agent members to encourage their photographers to join the Association in their own right so they can take advantage of the range of benefits we offer, in particular becoming eligible to enter the Photographers Awards.

Agent members of the AOP have voting rights. This entitles you to attend our Annual General Meeting and vote on any motions or resolutions regarding the AOP and for those members who may stand for the AOP's Board of Directors. As an Agent member you are eligible to sit on the Board.
"United we stand, divided we fall' was never truer than in the photography industry. The AOP works tirelessly to help the careers of individuals whilst fighting for the rights of all in our industry, including us agents! We believe in what the AOP stands for and are proud to show this by being members". - Niall Horton-Stephens
"I've been an agent member of the AOP for over 10 years now and, I must admit, they make my job just that little bit easier. The AOP present plenty of opportunities to gain exposure, network and keep you informed of the latest industry topics - all important stuff when you're an agent. The email forum, your agency website profile, Image magazine, the newsletters, job shop, the private views, the talks, the events - the AOP help you connect and stay connected." - Lisa Pritchard
