Membership Bursary Fund

At Shutter Hub we work really hard to make sure that things are as affordable and attainable as possible for photographers, and that we work together as a community to support and share.

Our membership is heavily subsidised by our own income (we receive no external grants or funding), allowing each of our members to access over £1000 worth of services for just £80 per year.


For those who aren’t Shutter Hub members we have, and always will, provide free content on our award winning blog – we share knowledge, opportunities, advice, behind the scenes projects, and much more. We also send out regular newsletters to our mailing list (sign up here), and you can keep in touch with us on Instagram and Twitter.

In 2016 we set up the Camera Amnesty, our appeal to help homeless photographers get hold of your unwanted cameras and photography equipment. We’ve created free exhibitions, free opportunities, and freedom to share, wherever we can.

We believe in collaborating and making a positive impact within the industry.


Not everyone can afford access to networks, and sometimes people need a bit of extra support and encouragement, we understand that, so we created the Shutter Hub Membership Bursary Fund. It’s not a hand out, it’s a leg up.

The Shutter Hub Membership Bursary Fund is a limited resource, available to photographers who are on a very low income and would benefit from the opportunities we offer. Photographers are able to apply or nominate other photographers to receive this bursary. This bursary is funded by Shutter Hub income, sponsorship and donations.


If you’d like to nominate someone, or yourself, please fill out the Shutter Hub Membership Bursary application form here.


If think you could help us fund an extra membership, please make a donation here, thank you.
