BIPP Fellowship Award

I am still in shock and overwhelmed to have been awarded my Fellowship in Wedding Photography by the British Institute of Professional Photographers – BIPP.

With hazardous conditions forecast and after a beautiful winters wedding in Aberdeenshire myself, Carol and the kids drove down to Manchester over night to attend the panel judging the next day. After a friendly greeting we waited nervously with a glass of red waiting to be summoned with the judges verdict! At last, I was called. My panel and supporting evidence laid out in front of me I was greeted by Chris Harper the chairman of the BIPP. Going over the images in a slow methodical manner Chris paused and said – you are now a Fellow of the BIPP! To say I was emotional is an understatement, never had I imagined I would reach such a distinguished level.

To put the importance of gaining my Fellowship into perspective; there are only a handful of BIPP Fellows in Scotland and I am only 1 of 2 that has achieved their Fellowship in Wedding Photography, arguably the hardest category to gain your Fellowship. But the most important element of this and subsequent qualifications has been the journey. I have been mentored by some amazing photographers, Kevin Pengelly FBIPP, Dennis Hylander FBIPP and Gordon McGowan FBIPP to name a few. I have learnt so much along the way, developing my skills as a photographer as well as creating my own unique wedding day style.

I would like to think the journey has only just began and look forward to where this will take me. I am grateful to Carol’s patience and promise to now spend more time with the children!

Barbara and Stuart’s Wedding – 23rd March 2013

Once again we had to brave the worst the North East of Scotland could through at us, this time in the form of snow! Barbara and Stuart married at Fyvie church which has the most amazing stained glass muriel up high above the alter.

After the ceremony the couple braved the journey back to Pittodrie House Hotel in the vintage Rolls Royce which remarkable handled the snow drifts and freezing conditions really well, well apart from the bride having to where my jacket for the journey back!

Barbara and Stuart were fantastic to work with for their wedding day photography, walking in the snow, sometimes up to their knees and always smiling having fun!

The photographs that follow are a brief glimpse of their fantastic day, we wish all the best for Barbara and Stuart and hope they have a fantastic honeymoon.

Arlene and Andrew’s Queensberry Press Book

The forecast was snow for our first wedding of the year, and the dusting of snow was just what Arlene and Andrew had dreamed of for their 2-2-13 wedding.  Arlene was stunning in her beautiful ‘new’ Maggie Sottero ’Lorie’ gown, a ‘borrowed’ fine detailed embroidered lace vail (from a friend) and those famous ‘something blue’ Manolo Blahniks shoes!  Although the Hunter wellies did come in handy for the snowy Bennachie photograph as well.

Both Arlene and Andrew braved the freezing temperatures and we had great fun photographing them at St Machars Cathedral - (the bride was on time), and afterwards at the scenic Pittodrie House Hotel in Chapel of Garioch (thankfully we’re still not waiting for Scott the best man!).

I’ve always loved black and white photography. Something special about how it directs the viewer straight to the subject without distraction, a timeless presentation.  Up until now a purely black and white book/album printed solely on textured fine art papers has been a dream, but thanks to Queensberry the dream has come true. Queensberry have a brilliant new product called ‘Press Books’. As the name suggests the books are press printed allowing the photographer to create a high end book using numerous different paper stocks and a wide range of cover options. The press books are a more affordable option to the traditional Queensberry album and are an excellent add on to the wedding package or portrait session. If you are looking for something a little different and practical then the Press Book is for you.

The images below show the actual book design, all in black and white, all illustrating the beautiful emotion on this wonderful wedding day.
