Guild of Photographers - The Photographers Bar

Super chuffed and very proud to have received this in the post today. The Photographers Bar from The Guild of Photographers!

“A member of the Photographer's Bar is a unique distinction awarded to those photographers who have successfully had images assessed by the Guild over the course of a year, and attained a score evidencing an exceptional level of professional skill and consistency.”⁣

Of course - while I get the award it could not be done without a steady flow of awesome dogs & owners coming through the door - putting their trust in me to create cherished memories of their dogs - so a big thank you from me

The year got off to a fantastic start as The Gloucester Dog Photographer was chosen by Theo Paphitis (of Dragons Den fame) as one of his #SBS Winners (SBS - Small Business Sunday) Each week Theo asks his Twitter followers to tweet about their business and six are chosen as winners. Winning the #SBS has given us a massive boost and belief after two years of stop/start/stop.

The Xperience Awards 2021 - Top 10 Image

So the Xperience Awards came & went without picking up a coveted title - but at least one of our images was a "Top 10" image - which is no mean feat as there were over 8000 entries. So we are really chuffed to show off this image of Hope - the super gorgeous Afghan Hound that made the top 10.

Xperience Consumer Awards Winner

At a glamorous virtual event hosted by the Xperience Group in Cardiff on a cold December night I was excited and privileged to have won not one but two Consumer Awards, The Consumer Awards are chosen by a panel of ordinary members of the public. More than 8000 images were entered this year so am very happy to pick up two awards, one for our studio photography - especially pleased as it is our signature style - and one for our location photography.
