We have just returned from Focus – our annual trade show, which we try to get to each year to check out new products and meet with old friends. This year we had an extra special reason for attending as after months of hard work Sally was ready to submit her panel in the hope of being awarded her Licentiate qualification by the Master Photographers Association.

The following is the press release we have just received:

Local photographer scoops national qualification

Rochford based photographer, Sally Claydon of Studio Rochford has been welcomed into the ranks of the Master Photographers Association (MPA) after being awarded a prestigious Licentiate qualification.

The MPA, the leading organisation within the photographic industry, prides itself on the quality of its members. Membership of the Association is only open to full time professional photographers, with strict entry requirements.

Eric Jenkins, chairman of the qualifying committee said: “It is a great honour for a photographer to be awarded a qualification and have their work recognised.  A Licentiate award indicates that the photographer is a qualified member of the Association.  It also demonstrates their competency in their chosen field of photography which reassures members of the public that they are using the services of a qualified photographer.”

Receiving a Licentiate qualification is the first in a series of three qualifications awarded to photographers by the MPA.  All candidates must attain the Association’s Licentiate qualification before being admitted to full membership.  This level of achievement shows their thorough understanding of camera techniques, lighting and composition and, of course, the ability to deliver quality photography.

Sally’s full panel can be seen at She can be contacted at Studio Rochford on 01702 542842 or via e-mail at
