Craftsman qualification with The Guild Of Photographers!

February 09, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

After a lot of procrastination i finally put in my application to become a Craftsman with The Guild Of Photographers. I had to submit a printed and mounted panel of 12 images within a particular genre, to which i chose aviation. The panel had to work together as a set of images so i chose to have 6 shots showing land and 6 shots showing sky. I also had to submit 36 digital images, including the 12 i was going to print, along with a book and a printed and framed image.

From the Guilds handbook...'Our 'Craftsman' status is, as one would imagine, aligned to the exacting standards of a true 'Craftsman'. Therefore to attain this level we add an increasing level of professional critique to evaluate our members work. In other words we get increasingly 'fussy' and look in minute detail at all the elements of photographic understanding. Those that achieve this accolade have demonstrated the finest technical skills and an exceptional creative and artistic 'eye'.'

I submitted my panel to the judges over the weekend that they hold their annual awards and I'm incredibly pleased to say that i passed!!

Here is my panel of 12 images that i had to get printed and mounted

Here are the images printed and mounted, in my lounge, for a quick check before wrapping and taking for submission..
and here are all 36 images that i submitted..

Finally,  here i am receiving my Craftsman Qualification at the Guilds annual awards evening!

Im incredibly proud of this achievement and will now work towards my Master Craftsman qualification as i believe that you need to keep pushing yourself.
