The British Institute of Professional Photography (BIPP) is a not-for-profit organisation for professional photographers in the United Kingdom. Members must be qualified professionals, and agree to be bound by the BIPP's code of conduct[1].

The Institute was formed as The Professional Photographers' Association on 28 March 1901, at a meeting at a hotel in Fleet Street, and has since changed its name three times, including Institute of Incorporated Photographers.[2] From 100 members at its outset, the institute now has 3,000 members.

Organisational structure[edit]

The Membership Services Advisory Board (MSAB) is made up of members put forward by their region. The MSAB are also responsible for choosing the Board of Directors.[3]
