CrSWPP – Craftsman of The Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers
Applicants for this prestigious qualification must submit a total of five full albums of wedding pictures all of which must be actual albums as supplied to customers.
We require JPEGs and facing pages should be made as a double page image. Please ensure the images appear sequentially so that they tell the story of the wedding. We will be assessing not just the quality of the photography, but also the presentation of the album as a whole. Does the layout of the pages flow. Do facing pages work together or only if viewed separately? The JPEGs should be of a quality that we can zoom in on individual images (200 dpi).
Submissions for this qualification may be submitted on CD or online
Each album page must be saved as an individual jpg 2000 pixels on the widest side and numbered 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06, 07, 08, 09, 10, …
Each album must be saved in it’s own folder and be named with the members name and number i.e. john_smith_1234_album_1. The folder must be zipped and forwarded vie our upload facility.
The albums should be actual albums as supplied to customers so we are aware that a customer’s selection might not be a photographer’s choice, e.g. lots of family groups, but hopefully some of your more creative images have been selected.

Photo Quote: As I became aware that all things have unique spatial and temporal qualities which visually define and relate them, I began to perceive the things I was photographing not as objects but as events. Working to develop my skills of perceiving and symbolizing these event qualities, I discovered the principle of opposites. When, for example, I photographed the smooth, luminous body of a woman behind a dirty cobwebbed window, I found that the qualities of each event were enhanced and the universal forces which they manifested were more powerfully evoked. - Wynn Bullock
