It seems there are approx 40,000 professional photographers in the UK. Lets say a tenth of those are in Scotland. Of those 4000 Scottish photographers lets say half of those shoot weddings (sometimes called Wedding Photographers). So 2000 professional wedding photographers in Scotland (Christ, that sounds like loads).
Of those 2000 Scottish wedding photographers, eight have been accepted as members of the prestigious Wedding Photojournalist Association.
Of those eight photographers, only one of them is ME.
The Wedding Photojournalist Association (WPJA) is a professional organization composed of photojournalists and wedding photographers from around the world. What sets our members apart in the industry is their candid, documentary approach – a distinctly artistic vision toward wedding photography.
The Wedding Photojournalist Association puts the world’s best wedding photography at your fingertips. We offer a new perspective on wedding photography – quietly capturing the real moments as they happen for the bride and groom. It is our goal to use photography to tell the story of your wedding day, not dictate it for you.
The WPJA is unlike other photography associations. Not just anyone can join. You have to meet strict criteria of style and quality. I know this because I have applied in the past and failed.
However this time my application was accepted and I am now part of an exclusive, worldwide association of wedding photographers with a proven ability, talent and style that sets them apart from others.
