Dave Burlison, a talented photographer, snap happy after he won a series of awards. Dave, who runs the Burlison Photography with Janice, his wife, from a converted barn located on Apsley Estate, in Hurstbourne Priors, has won each category where he entered in Master Photographers’ Association’s Photography Awards.
The contest is open to full time members of Master Photographers Association – United Kingdom’s only trade body which is exclusively for pro wedding, commercial and portrait photographers. Dave, who is the recommended photographer for Highclere Castle events – the home of ITV’s Downton Abbey – was very successful in 6 categories – commercial, portrait, press/PR, wedding photographer, fashion as well as wedding album design.
In the wedding class, an accomplished photographer snatched the 1st, 2nd and 3rd spot. Also, he was also called the Photographer of the Year. Dave told that it was really magnificent, as they won each category they went in for, and they have not entered the awards before.
He added that to be members of the Master Photographers’ Association, you have to be earning your living as a photographer, and be qualified, and it is the only organization in the country to have those standards. Photographers that belong to it are going to be the best. Therefore, to win all categories they went in for was really unbelievable. It is a huge honor.
