Debbie Simister LSWPP LBIPP | Qualified, accredited, professional wedding photographer
I love travelling, coffee and cake, my family, my dog, sunrise on frosty winter mornings and a romcom on a Sunday afternoon.
My journey to becoming a professional photographer has been well nurtured, I loved art school and was lucky enough to have been accepted into Chelsea College of Art for my foundation year and into LCP (Now University of the Arts) for my degree, this solid education in Art, developed me as both an artist and a person. I enjoyed a 10 year career as a graphic designer, working up to Design Manager within the travel industry and eCommerce. I have always loved photography, happily a keen amateur for years, I photographed my first wedding in 2008 and knew I had found something!
To establish yourself with a career in photography is hard work and expensive, but now I cherish it! It’s a fabulous job, meeting great people at very exciting times in their lives, weddings, pregnancies, births and birthdays. I really care about my clients and I want to provide them with an amazing set of photographs that I know they will love and cherish. I continue to push myself and my photography, travelling, exploring different disciplines, studying, training and making sure I progress in my art. Photography is led by fashion and trends, I love to play with these and like to keep relevant however I want my work to be timeless, realistic and true, so that future generations will recognise and understand the images they see.
My strong background in art education has taught me to continue to grow and strive to be the best wedding photographer I can be! I am committed to my profession and dedicate myself to gaining further qualifications with BIPP and SWPP.
There are many, many wedding photographers but surprisingly few are accredited professionals! I am qualified with two professional bodies in the UK, The British Institute for Professional Photography (BIPP) AND the Society for Wedding and Portrait Photographers (SWPP).
BIPP photographers are recognised across the world as having achieved a benchmark of excellence. I am proud to be one of only 7 BIPP qualified wedding photographers in Buckinghamshire. SWPP qualified photographers have achieved
“A level which shows a high level of dedication, understanding, and ability in their craft, and are recognised as able to “produce images of excellence”.
I am proud to be one of only 10 SWPP qualified wedding photographer Buckinghamshire. I would love to hear your wedding plans, please get in touch!
