Natural Lights Photography is an international award-winning studio and our photographers are accredited AIPP photographers.
The AIPP (Australian Institute of Professional Photographers) is the only governing organization for professional photographers in Australia. In order to become an accredited member, a photographer must pass the criteria and standard that marks us out as true professionals of our craft.
In addition to passing this accreditation, we have the opportunity to enter 4 images per year into the national Australian Professional Photography Awards. The APPA is like the Oscars of the photography industry and we spend months perfecting our award images. Over the course of three days, images are judged and scored by trained and accredited judges who are fellow members at the highest level within the AIPP. To score Silver an image must be awarded 80-84, a Silver Distinction 85-89, Gold 90-94 and Gold Distinction 95-100. In 2017, only 17% of images entered were awarded a Silver or above.
Between Ellen and myself, we have over 30 AIPP awards and we are already preparing our images for 2018 awards coming up later this year. This means we are always looking to push ourselves and create a higher standard image that then comes through in all our client work.
