Master Photographer Association Qualification
I am very pleased to say I have gained the distinction of Licentiate with the Master Photographer Association for my Family Photography taken in the Cotswolds. Phew that was rather nerve racking but also very enjoyable experience. I loved meeting the other photographers waiting to be judged, the judges and my mentor Ray Lowe who was fantastic in helping me gain my qualification. Lots of complimentary comments on my photos and some ever valuable critique. I hope this helps to assure you if you are looking for a family photographer in the Cotswolds you are working with an accredited qualified professional.

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.
