Photographer Paul Coghlin has passed one of the toughest tests of his career to gain his profession’s highest qualification.
Paul’s dedication, artistry and skill has been rewarded with a fellowship from the British Institute of Professional Photography.
It is the top award given by the organisation and recognises exceptional ability and creativity.
The cameraman from Great Waldingfield started his own business in 2009. A year later, he was named BIPP Photographer of the Year.
He specialises in fine art photography with inspiration often coming from nature.
“To be awarded the fellowship is an achievement I’m immensely proud of,” he said.
“The qualification process has helped me hone my personal style and develop and push my abilities.”
BIPP president Roy Meiklejon said: “Our qualifications are among the most rigorous in the world.”
