Be on the ground with photographers.

One of the most beautiful aspects of photography is that you have to be there to do it. It’s a mix of factual truth and emotional truth — that is what makes photography so powerful.

In this space we are going to share stories by our Pro Members, guest authors and founders of the society.

From on the ground to your inbox.

About Us

The Raw Society is an organization dedicated to educating, promoting and creating community within the documentary, travel and street photography world.

As photographers and educators, it is our wholehearted belief that the photographic image can be a powerful tool for inward and outward change, within reach of anyone and everyone willing to learn the language.

What sets The Raw Society apart is not so much what we do, but how we do it: differently. When it comes to membership and our community, anyone who is passionate about the type of photography that we work with (street, documentary and travel photography), can become a part of it, regardless of whether they bought their camera the week before or are already professionals in the field.

In addition to this, we're in it for the long run, so, as we get to know the people in our community, we get better at guiding them through their photographic journeys, in all the different forms the they might take on. From simply sharing project ideas or critiquing their work, to creating a photo book or pitching a story to a magazine, to navigating the business of photography or preparing an exhibition -- our community is there for each other and we are able to provide guidance and support to members and also provide one-off mentorship for anyone interested.
