Fantastic news to give. I have been awarded the Fellowship status to the British Institute of Professional Photographers, their highest award and is attainable for distinguished and exceptional ability and creativity so I’m extremely honoured to have reached this level.
Though this may be the top level it by no means means I’ll be resting on my laurels, not that we have any growing in the garden anyway! the ‘F’ will now help me with marketing giving my clients peace of mind they are hiring the best they can in the field they require and that my work is to and surpassing the standard that will help them with their business.
I have a few people to thank for their knowledge assistance and guidance along the path to this qualification.
Firstly my mentor Russell Baston, we haven’t hit it off all along the way but his knowledge and guidance has shone through in my submission and Russell guided my final layout so major thanks indeed.
Anne Marie Farley a wonderful photographer and friend who not only gave me some great critique but passed the TV company onto me for the Barging Round Britain book with John Sergeant, a massive thanks Anne Marie x
All the usual suspects within the BIPP for putting up with my “can I do this” emails etc etc and above all Princess Jojo for putting up with my constant outings and trips away leaving her to take care of the Husky gang and house and always taking care of me along the way xxxx
If I have forgotten anyone apologies and know that you helped along the way and are very much appreciated by me.
Now on with the book, me and Chris are doing a shoot in North Yorkshire this weekend and don’t forget we are doing the wedding circuit, several bookings for this year already.
