The Photographer’s Bar

The Photographer’s Bar



‘2020’ was an awful year for all of us. What was regarded as the simple things have been taken away from us. In it’s place was a void of emptiness. For a photographer who loves to photograph the joys of the natural world and human emotion I have been locked in to prevent the virus from spreading. I have realised that the simple hug with your loved ones or seeing your friends means more to me then words can say. Having a way of taking your mind of the stresses and strains has been incredibly important. Photography is a great way of doing this. Keep striving for the ‘complete’ picture is incredibly rewarding and will always push me to get better.

The Guild of Photographers is an excellent organisation. Managed by Steven & Lesley, the Guild look after every single photographer. Improving their skills by having help at an easy reach. This has pushed me to a higher level in Photography and as a person. Very proud in being a qualified member with the Guild in weddings.

The Guild of Photographer’s ‘Image of the Month’ competition involves members submitting images into sections of their choice. The entries are then assessed by a number of highly experienced Judges who grade them in accordance with international judging criteria, and the higher scoring images are given Bronze, Silver, Gold Awards or maybe even the highly sought after Platinum Bar.


Entry to the Image of the Month competition also feeds –

  • ‘Photographer of the Year’ Title chase (with ‘Top 10’ Photographer awards in each competition section
  • ‘Image of the Year’ competition (with ‘Top 10’ finalists and overall winners in each of around 15 genres)
  • The quest to become a member of the Photographers Bar (a lifelong distinction)

The focus for ‘2021’ is going to be two categories. Natural World and Open. With wedding photography still on the back burner for a little while longer the focus on new skills will continue.
