I am a proud to be a Qualified Professional Photographer with the British Institute of Professional Photographers qualified photographer, an internationally recognised qualifying organisation for photographers. The reason? BIPP photographers not only need to demonstrate consistency and skill, but also need to adhere to a code of conduct which ensures you will get the quality you expect. In April 2016, I was proud to accept the Chair of The BIPP's North West Region, following in the path of other Chairmen who have have held the role since 1918.

I am also Licentiate of the Royal Photographic Society and finally I am the only photographer in North Wales part of Fearless Photographers, a directory featuring some of the boldest wedding photography in the world. To say I am proud to have been allowed in is an understatement, but I also extend a challenge to all our couples to go wild and let themselves loose! Be Fearless and allow us to capture your wild side! :)
