Finally I’m an AIPP Accredited Member


Well it was about time. I had my papers signed off by two full members for a quite a while now (thanks guys… you know who you are) and I got them in late last year. So now I am a full member. Yay !!

Lets see if I can get NSW Landscape Photographer of the Year.  🙂 might be a bit of a stretch.

  1. Oh congratulations Matt…… I am still just an emerging member myself…. and I don’t think NSW Landscape Photographer of the Year is a stretch…… Always great to have a goal and I think that one is in reach for you!!! 🙂


  2. Thanks for the kind words guys…

    Mitch I think the term professional photographer has got lost in translation over the years. I’ve seen people who have done photography for six months as a hobby register a .com and call themselves professional as it sounds good to prospective customers.

    I think the AIPP among other things pus a bit more regulation and validity on the term professional photographer being used. Tom Putt wrote a good blog entry about the term being used and over used. But this topic is another blog entry in itself.

    At the end of the day it isn’t about a title, it is about the quality of your work, how you present it and this is what should be focused on.
