London photographer achieves national acclaim!
London photographer Kamal Mostofi has been granted membership of the 'Photographers Bar'.
Membership of the 'Photographers Bar' is a unique distinction awarded to those photographers who have successfully had images assessed by the Guild of Photographers over the course of a year and have attained a score that evidences an exceptional level of professional skill and consistency throughout that a full year..
The Guild of Photographers is a highly respected association for all photographers and it's competition attracts up to 1000 images for judging by an an expert Panel of Judges each month. Points are given to entries and these are then totaled at the end of the year. Those who reach the required threshold are then awarded membership of the 'Photographers Bar'.
That membership of the 'Photographers Bar' is a distinction that is very difficult to achieve - in fact less than 100 photographers have achieved it in the 3 years since its inception, during which timeover 30,000 images will have been entered for assessment by photographers across the UK and from overseas.
Guild Director Lesley Thirsk said "I am delighted for Kamal as this is a great achievement! Submitting and having images assessed every month for a year and reaching the required standards to become a member of the Photographers Bar is very very demanding. It illustrates his commitment, skill and consistency. He should be very proud of what he has achieved!"
On hearing the news Kamal said "Starting 2016 with this great acheivment is the start of a new path in my photography career. Being a photographer is not about clicking the button on a camera."
