Equine Photographer Philip Yale recognised as ‘Master Craftsman’

Philip Yale Equine Photographer

Cheshire-based equine portrait photographer Philip Yale of Philip Yale Photography has achieved the distinction of becoming recognised as a ‘Master Craftsman’ with the Guild of Professional Photographers, the highly regarded national photographic body whose members are committed to achieving the highest standards of professionalism for the benefit of their customers.

Achieving this with the Guild involves a rigorous assessment process. So much so, fewer than 50 photographers in the Country hold this title!

Guild Directors, Steven and Lesley Thirsk, said:

“We are delighted that Philip has achieved this! The Guild has very demanding standards, so this achievement reflects Philip’s commitment to his photography, as well as his ability.

The judging is undertaken by a panel of industry experts from a variety of photography backgrounds, so Philip should be very proud of this recognition”. 

Philip said:

“I’m absolutely thrilled to receive this recognition. It took a lot of planning and careful selection of the final images to be printed. I actually submitted my panel of 20 images to be assessed for Craftsman status, but the judges liked the set of images so much they upgraded the award to that of Master Craftsman, which was totally unexpected”. 

The Guild website lists members throughout the country who offer this commitment, along with advice on how to choose a photographer that will meet your needs.
