Student membership

© Jo Lauren 2019 The Student Awards finalist

AOP Student is a web-based membership with all the benefits listed below. 

By becoming an AOP Student you automatically become part of a wider community of students, assistants, photographers & photographers' agents.

We believe that to become a successful professional photographer working for commercial clients, you must demonstrate a special level of drive, initiative, business acumen and skill. Becoming a student member does not offer a fast-track to success (there isn't one) nor does it provide any guarantees as the industry you are hoping to enter is one of the toughest to break into. But - if you put the effort in, work hard and learn from your results, you are, at the very least, on the first rung of the ladder.

Criteria:

Open to all students studying at FE or HE
