Not only did Niel find out he had won the Guild's 'Image Of The Month' competition but he's now passed the Guild's Wedding Qualified criteria.

Niel started taking photos at the age of eight when his dad gave him a camera 'to keep him quiet' and proudly sees his dad as his inspiration! He did his first wedding in 2004 and was 'hooked'. He works throughout Yorkshire with his wife Zoe and loves photographing weddings because they are so creative, emotionally charged and challenging. He's had training from many big names including Annabel Williams and Damian Lovegrove but clearly has imposed his own personality into his photography.

Niel says that 'It means a huge amount to qualify with the Guild. They work tirelessly to promote the industry I love and best practice within it, so to be recognised in this way really is an honour for me. I want to give the very best to my customers, and as a perfectionist I want to raise my game even further with the Guilds help!'
