My Silver Award Achievements with The Guild of Photographers

Photography has been my passion for many many years and yet still a week doesn’t pass when I don’t learn something new, whether it be in camera, lighting or in editing. Year on year I see how I continue to improve and grow and this is reflected by my awards and achievements.

Over this last year I have achieved several Silvers with The Guild of Photographers, a lovely step in the right direction from the previous years Bronzes of which I am still very proud.

I thought I would share some of my Silvers with you here. As you can see I have achieved Silver in Newborn, Maternity, Pets. and Portraiture too.

Birds of Prey

I offer Pet Photography in my Portfolio which potentially can cover any pet which is suitable to travel and be safe in a studio environment. Last week I had the pleasure and excitement of photographing two stunning birds of prey, a Saker Falcon and a Harris Hawk. Both arrived in their travel boxes and were taken out one at a time. The handler kept the birds on a leash attached to either his glove or a perch so that there was no risk of flying and damaging their wings. I took a whole series of beautiful photographs which I then edited into a Fine Art style. Here are a few.

Note: When I have pets in the studio all soft furnishings are removed, and things that cannot be removed are covered fully with waterproof coverings to protect them. After a pet session the studio floor is fully steam cleaned to ensure it is perfect fro my next client. Safety and hygiene are my number one priorities.
