John Watson photography Southampton is please to announce the successful photography qualification of Licentiate of the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers.

So what does this mean for you as a customer?

It means that your wedding photos will be taken by a photographer who has been trained to a high standard,  showing consistent quality and care, and gives you the peace of mind that you've chosen the right photographer. To obtain the qualification, I've sent photos from 20 of my weddings to a panel of judges for review.

To quote from the SWPP website, What we expect of a Licentiate

We are looking for images that show the applicant is in full control of the medium. The images should show correct camera technique, full control of the lighting and the final production of the finished image. Many images fail at the last hurdle because the final digital file or print quality is poor, showing banding from ink jet prints, blemishes that should have been retouched or poor presentation. Very often colour balance is wrong. We expect to see that the photographer is in control of the subjects portrayed and in the case of people, that they are posed in an attractive manner and good expressions obtained.

Thank you to all my customers over the last 3 years for allowing me the privilege of being part your wedding day and I look forward to many more happy customers.

Thanks, John
