Gary lands 2009 UK Award

The British Institute of Professional Photography (BIPP) held their National Awards Ceremony yesterday evening in Shropshire – and it was an honour to be UK Award Winner in Contemporary Wedding Photography.    BIPP President, Graham Rutherford FBIPP, said “The standards we set in our Awards are extremely high. This picture by Gary is an outstanding example of the best in European photography.”

Overall it was a very exciting evening viewing the best imagery in other photography disciplines and meeting the leading players.  This image was taken at Rebecca and Andy’s wedding at the Bingham Hotel in Richmond.   For any photographers interested, this was a handheld shot taken in very low light, pushing the camera to its limits (ISO 3200 and 1/30).   Anyone wanting to the print in the “flesh” can see it on display at the annual Focus Exhibition next March.

The BIPP has selected Gary’s winning image for entry into the European Professional Photographer of the Year Awards by the Federation of European Photographers.
