Musgrove Oak, 1st Place, BIPP Awards South West 2012

Wincanton-based photographer, Graham Hiscock LBIPP, has received recognition for his work in wedding photography after achieving a Bronze award and two Certificates of Merit at the British Institute of Professional Photography (BIPP) South West Regional Awards.

When asked about his achievements, Graham said:

"To have gained 1st, 2nd and 3rd places in the BIPP awards is a real confidence builder in progressing forward in my career in photography."

Graham's affiliation with wedding imagery began in 1991, while working as a professional videographer. It wasn't until a decade later that he transitioned from video to print, applying the same level of creativity in his wedding photography as he was known for in video. This prompted him to pursue a qualification with the BIPP, and in 2005 Graham achieved his Licentiateship in Wedding Photography.

He describes his approach to wedding photography as providing...

"...a mix of modern contemporary images, together with relaxed traditional and reportage styles. Concentrating on what the bride and groom want from their day is paramount to me, and I work my style around what I think my clients feel comfortable with".

Though known to cover weddings and parties across the country, most of Graham's work takes place within an hour of his custom built studio in Wincanton. Here he conducts both portrait and product shoots, as well as lifestyle shoots on location. More recently, Graham has been working alongside top London fashion and hair photographer, Barry Jeffrey.

BIPP President, Roy Meiklejon FBIPP, stated "I was delighted to present the 2012 South West Awards. The images are a wonderful example of professional photography in the region, and highlight why people should always use a qualified professional".

The BIPP Awards are amongst the most highly regarded in the industry. Entry allows members to benchmark their work against that of their professional peers, and success in these awards shows an incredibly high standard of work. Not only are the judges looking for composition and technical ability, but also creativity, interpretation and that 'wow factor'.

I love these, I'm sure you don't need me to tell you how great they are. Mr Hiscock is obviously as much an artiest with a camera as anyone ever was with paint.
I will certainly bare you in mind should I need pictures done... one day we'll get married.

I don't expect your services come cheep, but they look worth the higher price.

Again these are stunning.
Congratulations on great talent.

Hi Animal

Thanks so much for your kind comments regarding my photography. I do try and be creative whilst keeping things as relaxed as possible. I'm not cheap, but quality seldom is. That being said, I don't feel I'm expensive either. With wedding photography it's not just being able to take good images, but having the ability to understand how a wedding 'works' and making not just the bride and groom feel relaxed but the guests also.

Having won the award for nest wedding photographer in the South-West has certainly boosted my confidence, but photography dosen't stand still, and I am always looking for new challenges and ideas. I also do alot of commercial photography, and my wife Trixie is an excellent portrait photographer, so between us cover most aspects of photography.

Thankyou again for your comments, it's always nice to know your work is appreciated. If yourself or anyone reading this needs any help with their photography please drop into our Wincanton shop (Camelot Photographic), I will be glad to assist where possible.
