Guild Master Craftsman

Guild Master Craftsman

Fantastic news, David has been appointed as a Guild of Photographers Master Craftsman in wedding photography. This award is a great honour and will enable David to help with mentoring, judging and assessments.

This is after being awarded a Fellowship of B.I.P.P last year on submission of a portfolio of 22 wedding pictures. The pictures all have to be taken at real weddings under the usual wedding day constraints – no ‘wedding styled photo-shoots’ allowed!!

The pictures submitted have to be of the highest artistic and technical quality and are assessed by a panel of expert judges.

One of the pictures from the successful portfolio. Please make an appointment if you would like to come and see them all:-

Here In Your Heart

In trying to keep our pictures fresh, we are always looking for alternative views, sometimes they have been seen before and occasionally we find something unique!

In preparing for David’s Fellowship panel, the advice was, if possible, not to enter any of the pictures in competitions or use the pictures on our website, as when they get copied by other Photographers they start to lose their impact!

As far as we are aware this location and framing has not been used by anyone else previously, although that will undoubtedly soon change – this is where you saw it first!

Fellowship of BIPP!

Membership of an organisation and qualifications sadly does not guarantee you to be a better photographer! What it does show is a willingness to learn and the ability to achieve a standard. This discipline will always carry forward and therefore improve the photographer’s regular work.

The British Institute of Professional Photography (BIPP) was founded over 100 years ago and has four levels. The qualified levels are based on the submission of work.

Unqualified

Licentiate (LBIPP) – the photographer is competent in that discipline.

Associate (ABIPP) – a developing sense of style, a halfway point if you prefer.

Fellowship (FBIPP) – the highest accolade, showing distinctive style and only awarded to less than 5% of professional photographers.

It was a great honour for David yesterday to be awarded Fellowship of The British Institute of Professional Photography, in the difficult discipline of wedding photography. To our knowledge there is no other working Wedding Fellow based  in Essex!

Thanks to Kevin Pengelly FBIPP for providing mentoring over the last year or so.
