Happy New Year!

Happy new year! And so another year rolls by.  2018 was filled with more wonderful weddings and the studio saw its busiest year to.  With wedding bookings now into 2021 its looking like another couple of busy years ahead, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Its been a while since I qualified as a Master Photographer back in 2017 but I often find my new clients aren’t aware of my qualification so heres the press release from back then.  I am also planning on increasing my qualification with a personal project and a future wedding panel.  As I believe the only way to improve to to push your self harder and harder.  Heres to a great year, Let’s smash it!

Andrew Franklin of Coulsdon has been awarded his Licentiateship of the Master Photographer Association (LMPA) with a stunning panel of Images of Wedding Photography, which is Andrews speciality.

The judges’ comments given to Andrew, included words like sheer quality, impact, stunning, outstanding and unique, which explained the strength of the whole panel.

Licentiateship of the MPA, is the hardest qualification to achieve within the photographic profession, as this takes a great deal of time, work and dedication to your art to reach this level. Entering the Association at probationary level and reaching the required high standards of this qualification is such a massive achievement.

Not only do you have to submit an extensive panel of photographic images, which are displayed and judged in front of 5 highly respected Fellows of the industry, but you also must produce an in depth working profile, about your work and business practises. This document goes into the Health & Safety elements that must be understood when dealing with the public, also have professional insurances that protect the public.

This is the reason why the public should only book a qualified professional photographer to photograph those precious memories in life, their wedding, pets or family and children, as it’s the only way they have of knowing they will get the best creative photographs and personal service possible.
