Judges

Camille Lafon, Camille Lafon, Montpellier, France

I am a passionate photographer since I was 16 years old, I love to capture life and emotions, particularly in B&W photojournalism. When I first started to propose my professional services for studio and coverage, I discovered the amazing work of the ISPWP photographers who gave me the desire to became part of them . I started wedding photojournalism in 2014. Since then, I am very happy to be member of the community and now jugde for this contest. You can visualise my work on www.camille-lafon.fr

Ian MacMichael, Ian MacMichael Photography, Liverpool, United Kingdom

I'm married with 3 children. I studied for a PhD sponsored by the Ministry of Defence (UK) in advanced polymer science after a chemistry degree. I then became a teacher in secondary school and, up until 3 years ago was combining my role as Head of Science with my photography business. I'm delighted to say may passion has become my profession. I still teach A level photography for a few hours a week.

Like lots of others I guess. I shot a few friends' weddings in the late 80s and early 90s....I can remember shooting a wedding, maybe 20+ years ago, and the groom's dad (I think it was) gave me 6 rolls of 36 exposure Kodak colour 100...after the wedding, I simply handed him the exposed film and thought job done! Can you imagine today getting a couple of CF or SD cards off a client and just giving them the full cards back afterwards? No, nor can I!! I did this for about half a dozen friends when I was around 20-25, then, about 5 years ago, a work colleague knew I was into photography and asked if I would consider shooting her best friend's wedding and she was prepared to pay me. When I first considered it, I remember thinking that I really didn't want to gt into shooting weddings, too much pressure and too much hassle. I was a little nervous but I took the plunge. To my surprise, I loved the experience, the pressure, the demand and the reaction of the couple when I provided the images. I was hooked, and, 50+ weddings later, I still love it!

There is lots still to learn. My definition of success is not primarily a financial one. It is more personal I think. I believe I have succeeded when the couple have put their complete trust in us and I exceed their expectations when they see the final images. When a bride, and sometimes a groom, have an emotional reaction to my images then I consider that to be a success. I still have so much learning to do and it is that that motivates me to keep improving and to keep going forward.
