If you’ve noticed a new banner on our main website during the last week, it’s because I’ve recently applied and got accepted into the Artistic Guild of the Wedding Photojournalist Association!
The [AG]WPJA is a subdivision of WPJA that focuses on photographers that excel in the art of post-production image processing. Acceptance is based on meeting and upholding the organization’s standards of originality and skill and includes strict guidelines for membership inclusion.
I feel lucky to be a part of a handful of California photographers that have been accepted into the [AG]WPJA. One of the benefits for members is the opportunity to enter the quarterly photography contests and have the images critiqued by some of the most talented and well known shooters in the industry. I can’t wait for a chance to enter some of the images I’ve created thanks to our amazing clients. Trophies, prizes, and awards are given to the top 10 selected images in a variety of categories.
