 History of the BIPP (BIPP). "There is a general agreement that professional photography emerged in 1842, just three years after William Fox Talbot demonstrated his 'photogenic drawings' to the Royal Institution and the Royal Society. The evidence is in an advertisement suggesting that photographic portraits would make useful Christmas presents, studios were besieged and photography emerged as a profession....On 28 March 1901, at a meeting at a hotel in Fleet Street, one hundred photographers assembled and unanimously formed 'The Professional Photographers' Association'. Branches were formed in Birmingham, Edinburgh, Hull and Liverpool and in 1907 the membership stood at 757. Evolving through the years and after three name changes, we have become The British Institute of Professional Photography." (Submitted on January 5, 2018.)
