Since August 2020 I am a ‘Qualified Professional’ - QGNBP member of the GUILD OF PHOTOGRAPHERS.
It is a highly respected national photographic body whose members are committed to achieving the highest standards of professionalism for the benefit of their customers.
Becoming ‘Qualified’ with the Guild involved a rigorous assessment process as well as creating a successful picture panel.
Since 2013 I was a member of TAUNTON CAMERA CLUB.
It is one of the premier clubs of the south west of England. The club is affiliated to the photographic Alliance of Great Britain.
I participated in lots of inspiring lectures, pictures exhibitions and taken part in photography competitions assessed by external judges . I have been given awards, including Image of the Year in 2016 and 2019 as well as desired Trophy for Portraiture in 2014.
