It's aimed at anyone who is serious about photography, whether or not you are a full time or part time photographer, artist, collector, lecturer, tutor, gallery owner or curator. Membership runs for one year and is renewable and paid online annually through PayPal.

It features:

  • Savings – substantial discounts on most Redeye activities, and on a range of other activities and services
  • Access to commissions and other work opportunities distributed exclusively to members
  • Information – member-only content including essential support for career development
  • Involvement – members get priority access to all Redeye services, and can take part in the AGM and focus groups to have a say in how the network is run.

The cost is £50 per year, £48 if you pay by GoCardless Direct Debit, or just £30 for students and those joining up to a year after graduating. That's £4 per month (or £2.50 for students).
