  • Derek Vincent LBIPP
  • Helen Spiegl LBIPP

The following members have achieved the Associate qualification:

  • Imogen Moon ABIPP

The assessment process involved submitting a panel of work to five judges, who assessed each submission based on technical proficiency, creativity, and visual impact. The panel was chaired by Dr Paul Wilkinson, an accomplished photographer and educator with over 30 years of experience in the industry. Commenting on the achievement of the members, Dr Wilkinson said, “I am delighted to see these talented photographers achieve their Licentiate and Associate qualifications with the BIPP. Their dedication, passion, and hard work have been reflected in the high standard of their photographic work, and I am very excited to see them come back to a future qualification to take the next”.

The BIPP congratulates all the members who have achieved these qualifications and encourages all members to continue developing their skills and creativity within the photographic industry.
