Join TPOTY’s Light Club

Delving into the heart and soul of photography, with an eye on travelling the world

What is Light Club?

Light Club is TPOTY’s online membership area. As well as offers and benefits, members get free access to Eye for the Light – our magazine with exclusive photography and travel content.
Eye for the Light looks beyond the technical to the craft, to inspirations and creativity. Read about and listen to inspirational photographers, the vision behind great photography and fascinating photographic journeys.

What’s on Eye for the Light?

Currently there are more than 75 features and podcasts to enjoy. Here’s a few free ones to give you a taster.

Over-photographed – Northern Lights

Photographing the Northern Lights or Southern Lights has become extremely popular in recent years. How do you make your images stand out? In our over-photographed series we look at different approaches.

Meet the judges – Linda Barberic

Linda adds a different slant to this year’s TPOTY judging panel. She’s a creative producer who deals with how images are used to convey a message or tell a story. Here she gives her insights into work and judging.

Human connections

The world’s tribal cultures have long drawn photographers but it’s a fine balance between capturing a timeless way of life and turning people into a human zoo. Trevor Cole shares his engaging approach.
