Blackpool photographer's top honour
A Blackpool photographer is celebrating after picking up a string of awards.
Zoe Taylor, of ZT Photography, won recognition for her wedding and portrait photography after being selected for eight awards including Gold in Creative Weddings, Gold in Creative Portraits and the Judges Choice: Social Award by the British Institute of Professional Photography, BIPP.
Zoe began her studies in photography at Blackpool College and started her professional career working as a freelance press photographer, covering a variety of social events.
Now part of a dedicated wedding and portrait photography duo, Zoe and Liam Carroll have created a style that is mainly documentary with a side order of cinematic portraits – they love to capture emotion, bursts of movement, passion and energy alongside great narratives.
The BIPPNW took place at the newly renovated Dukes 92, Manchester.
Zoe said: “To receive such amazing recognition was truly a complete surprise and far beyond our wildest expectations – but after so much hard work and dedication, we can always be very proud of these achievements.
“Of course none of these special moments would have been possible without the amazing couples we are so fortunate to work with – they had faith in our vision and trusted our instincts – thanks to them for being awesome.”
As the qualifying body of professional photography in the UK, BIPP requires any photographer going for qualification to follow strict criteria and provide a substantial portfolio of commissioned work, together with supporting information about themselves as a professional.
