I was very pleasantly surprised this morning when I received, in my post today, a letter confirming that I have been awarded a Licentiate qualification from the Society of Wedding & Portrait Photographers (SWPP). This means I am now recognised as a Qualified member of The Society.
I submitted a panel of 20 images to the Society and these images were judged by a panel of highly qualified and respected photographers who confirmed that I have the ability to create images of excellence and provide images that are of a professional standard.
The Licentiate award is the first step in my qualification process and I will look to carry on training and creating images with a view to progressing to the next stage (that of Associateship).
Here is the panel I submitted.
