There are lot’s of different organisations, guilds and associations for photographers around, but only very few of them I truly respect. One of those is AGWPJA – Artistic Guild of Wedding Photojournalist Association. Main reason for that can be found in WPJA website: “Membership in the WPJA depends entirely on photographers meeting our high standards for inclusion. One CANNOT simply pay his/her way into the WPJA. We emphasise this is NOT another ad-driven wedding web site.” WPJA is an exclusive society of the most talented professionals in the industry! A few weeks ago I submitted my portfolio to WPJA…
…and today I am happy to announce that I am now a proud member of the Artistic Guild of Wedding Photojournalist Association (AG|WPJA)! I’m very honoured to be part of a community which has some of the worlds most talented and inspirational wedding photographers as members.
To understand what is AG|WPJA and what they stand for, here’s some info from their web-site: “The Artistic Guild of the Wedding Photojournalist Association is a distinct division within the Wedding Photojournalist Association (WPJA). The AG|WPJA focuses strictly on the artistic and “fine art” aspects of wedding photojournalism. AG|WPJA members are international wedding photojournalists, who excel both in creating outstanding images through a documentary approach, and in the art of post-production processing of wedding photographs. In a nutshell, AG|WPJA photographers take great candid pictures, enhance them using the technology available, and deliver museum-quality images from your wedding day.”
I am very proud to be part of such organisation!
