I am rather late in announcing this……I am extremely pleased to say that I have been accepted into the WPJA (Wedding Photojournalist Association). What is the WPJA I hear you ask! This quote taken from the WPJA website explains it better than I can “Since 2002 the WPJA has been the number one trusted source for the best wedding photojournalists in the world. Recognized for excellence by leading wedding publications including BRIDES magazine, the WPJA is an international network of vigorously vetted professional photographers whose work is regularly judged by award-winning photojournalists (including many Pulitzer Prize-winners) and news photo editors. With ongoing curatorial vision the association identifies emerging talent, keeping our talent pool fresh and cutting edge. The WPJA is dedicated to upholding the highest standards in creative wedding photojournalism while promoting best business practices.”
Gaining entry into the WPJA is a strict process and it has been said that only 5% of WPJA applicants get accepted! I am currently the only West Yorkshire based wedding photographer in the WPJA! Suffice it to say I am honored and humbled to have my work alongside some of the finest wedding photographers in the world.
