Welcome to the Association for Historical and Fine Art Photography's (AHFAP) website. We are a membership-based organisation for image professionals in the cultural heritage sector. AHFAP aims to provide a forum for photographers, image-makers, conservators and image archivists to share experiences and benefit from mutual co-operation.
This site includes information and resources on all aspects of the association. We also have a JISCMail discussion group, visit our Discussion Forum page for details. To see examples of the type of work our members create go to the Galleries and Blogs sections.
Our health and our safety are no laughing matters. The evidence is clear that to eliminate the risk of infection all human social contact must be avoided for some considerable time. Being effectively locked up is a grim prospect but it is the only sure way to protect ourselves and check the spread of this virus.
As if this weren’t enough, for many of us our livelihood is jeopardised. Naturally, the mechanisms for obtaining financial support or compensation are in the early stages of development but we have found two websites so far. We hope to be able to add to this list and we welcome suggestions and contributions from the membership. Please see our News pages for information that we have so far and for information on an offer from Affinity Apps.
For 35 years our association has stood for the free and copious exchange of knowledge and information and supports individuals by mutual encouragement. Heed the warnings and be patient.
It is with the greatest regret that, due to the current global health situation, the committee has decided to cancel this year’s conference in Edinburgh. However we plan to hold some online events. Please see our conference page for more details.
