The Association of Photographers was formed in London in 1968, originally as the Association of Fashion and Advertising Photographers by a small group of photographers (later joined by editorial photographers to become AFAEP). United by a common aim to challenge the then unreasonable demands of model agencies, it brought together professional photographers, to protect their rights and promote photography.

Constituted as a non-profit distributing trade association, today its membership exceeds 1,000 photographers and photographic assistants. It is also supported by photographers' agents, printers, manufacturers and suppliers of photographic equipment. The AOP also has a number of affiliated colleges and plays a significant role in promoting, maintaining and developing relationships between all levels of higher and further education and the professional industry.

The association also runs the AOP Awards, a highly prestigious awards scheme for members, considered by many to provide the top competition in each of the areas it covers; Professional, Assistant & Student photography. In addition the AOP runs a competition that is open to all photographers, which attracts professionals and amateurs alike. All the winning images from each of the awards are published in a corresponding book and all images are exhibited at a prominent London venue after the winners have been announced.
