The Royal Photographic Society has appointed Dr Michael Pritchard FRPS, 46 as new Director General.

He takes up the post on the 20th September and his duties will include managing the Society's headquarters operations, working with the council to lead the future direction of the Society and further raising the profile of the Society nationally and internationally.

Previously a director at Christie's auction house, where he was responsible for photographic auctions, and having completed a PhD examining the British photographic industry, he has plenty of experience in the field. He has had a passion for photography since he was ten years old and recently taught at De Montfort University, Leicester.

On being appointed this prestigious role, he said: “I am conscious of - but excited - to be stepping into the shoes of previous secretaries such as Roger Fenton and I know the Society staff, Council and membership will be supportive over the coming months. The Society has an incredibly vibrant and exciting programme of events across all areas of photography, and its annual exhibitions and the distinctions are now more popular than ever showcasing the highest standards of photography. I am confident that I can bring new skills to bear that will help it do this.”
