I did it….I did it….I did it….I am now Ursula McCollam LSWPP!!!!
So what does this really mean I hear you say? Well……it means you can rely on me to provide fantastic images of your wedding!
I am a member of the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers (SWPP), which all wedding or portrait photographers can join. They have a qualification structure where your work is assessed against their professional standards. Not all members are qualified… indeed it stands to reason that we all start somewhere. But going down the qualification route gives credibility to your work, and Im proud to say that Ive done this!
The L stands for Licentiate, and means that that I have achieved a standard where I am in “full control of the medium” and my images are “of marketable quality”.
Succeeding at the level of LSWPP is an amazing achievement, and to say Im thrilled is an understatement. I am so excited that my work has been assessed by some of the best photographers in the country, and that my peers have decided that my work is of an exceptionally high standard. They analysed my work over 10 areas, which included elements such as creativity and style, composition, technical excellence, and photographic technique. Against the 10 standards, they examined my images in minuscule detail……and felt I deserved the award! The images can be found here on the SWPP website….but I’ll also add them below for everyone to view.
From here I intend to keep improving. I will continue to challenge myself, and to work towards higher achievements….which of course will benefit all my future brides and grooms!
