TOP TEN INTERNATIONAL WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER 2020
& PHOTOGRAPHERS BAR IN 3 CATEGORIES & THE SILVER BAR
For a few years now I have entered images into The Guild of Photographers Image of the Month competition and 2020 was no different, even if it was a difficult year for most photographers.
Being an award-winning photographer is something that appears to be more and more common these days, so I wanted to do more than just grab an award for a single image I wanted to show my consistent level of quality and the Guild’s competitions do exactly that as you build up points and awards across the year.
In February I’d usually make the annual pilgrimage to Crewe Hall for The Guild of Photographers awards, obviously Covid had different ideas for 2020 and the event had to be held virtually. All things considered It was still a great night, with a few familiar faces, but also some outstanding new talent on show too.
Having worked at my image entries across various categories throughout the year and digging through the back-catalogue when weddings and pretty much everything else photography related stopped!
On the awards night it was announced that I had achieved the accolade of one of the Top Ten International Wedding Photographers from all of those entering the competition. I’m very proud of that achievement and even more so that it was my second time in the Top Ten.
In addition to this, I also achieved ‘The Bar’ in 3 categories, for consistent quality awards across the year. After that, I was also awarded ‘The Silver Bar’ – something only awarded to those photographers who have achieved a total of 5 or more Bar’s in their time in the Guild.
