I’m a PRO Member of BANPAS - Newborn and Baby Photographer
As an established newborn photographer, I’m constantly honing my skills and attending specialist training to ensure I deliver the very highest standard of portraits to my clients. I’m also an active member of BANPAS - the UK’s only dedicated trade association for Newborn and Baby Photographers.
BANPAS support photographers in many areas of their business including sharing best practice in terms of working safely with newborns and babies. BANPAS offer 2 levels of membership - their Pro Level membership is only accessible to those whose work meets the highest standards. I’m delighted to let you know that I recently achieved Pro Level Membership with BANPAS.
In order to achieve this level I had to submit a portfolio of 12 images that had to include specific elements - such as a sibling or family image. The images are then scored by a panel which includes some of the UK’s most respected newborn photographers. It’s very difficult to achieve the pass mark, with only around 10% of the entire BANPAS membership operating as Pro Members.
The images were scored in 4 different areas out of a mark of 5, which are Focus (5), Exposure (4), Lighting (4) and Posing (4). This means that I have scored a total of 17/20 for my images, which is absolutely fantastic and I am immensely proud of this achievement.
Below are a selection of images included in my portfolio submission.
I’m delighted and very proud that the standard of work I produce has been recognised by this leading organisation and I’d love to thank all of my past clients for trusting me with their precious bundles.
