Over the last few years I have received some awards that I am very proud of.
Herefordshire Wedding Suppliers Award for Best Photographer 2014
This was a massive honour for me as it was the first time the awards had been held in Herefordshire and I was up against some very talented wedding photographers. To even be nominated was amazing but to receive the most votes from members of the public, within the industry and from previous clients was the icing on the cake.
Licentiate with the SWPP (Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers)
In 2016 I was awarded my Licentiate with the SWPP which was a massive honour. To gain this qualification I had to submit a panel of images to be judged by some of the best photographers in my chosen field.
This is what the SWPP have to say about the Licentiate
The general public tend to regard this, our lowest level of qualification as a "Licensed" photographer and in many ways this is not an unreasonable analogy. As far as the SWPP are concerned, we draw our judges for all levels of qualification from amongst the most skilful practitioners in the World. They are trained to look at this level for a consistent standard of imaging that a client could reasonably not take issue with. If you like, a base level of professional competence or in the terminology of Trading Standards departments, "items of merchantable quality". Of course we also look at aesthetics and imagination but at this level they are not crucial factors.
