Sustaining Membership Program

It’s so rewarding to be part of a global community, a family, of like-minded people who are passionate about Leica photography. By investing in LHSA – The International Leica Society, you’re joining a group of leaders who believe that photography can improve our lives.

As technology and media continue to evolve, now more than ever we rely on you to embrace your community. We are constantly expanding our content and broadening our audience to all generations by making stories and conversations available on the web and social media, via all devices.

Becoming a Sustaining Member helps LHSA strengthen its impact on online – and in the community. Your investment ensures access to fascinating and uplifting content and lively events that increase engagement. We are grateful for your support and hope you will enjoy the benefits of being a major investor in our family.

  • A new special-edition deluxe Sustaining Member baseball cap or shirt (member’s choice) (first year only for 3-year members)
  • 10% off registration for all events
  • Guaranteed registration for events, even if “sold out”
  • Recognition on website, Viewfinder, etc.
  • Recognition at events
