Well I finally managed to pick up the courage to submit my Panel to The Guild of Photographers
to become qualified. I am so glad to say I passed. This qualification is NOT easy to get. The guild has extremely high standards and it is those standards that have inspired me and pushed to to create beyond where I thought possible.
As it says on their website...‘Qualified’ status is aligned to standards of competence that reflect a level where the customer should be pleased with the results’, when employing the services of a skilled tradesman (the photographer). In other words ‘Qualified’ indicates professional ‘competence’ to a level where the Guild is willing to recognise the photographer as an ambassador of the association , so those who achieve that level should be proud of doing so
