Lucky Bedfordshire Mum Wins £5,000 in National Photography Competition – Award Winning cherubs photograpy from Oakley Studios in Luton

The image featured at the top of this page, taken by David Doyle AMPA of Oakley Studios Luton has won the “Cherub Baby of the Year Competition 2018/19”. After thousands of beautiful baby images a nationwide panel of mums chose an image of Katie Witt’s son as the Winner with Katie receiving a fabulous prize of £5,000.

The grand final of the Cherub Baby of the Year competition, run by the Master Photographers Association (MPA) was shown live on Facebook with Katie watching as her son’s image was revealed as the Winner. David, owner of Oakley Studios and creator of the image, was totally thrilled for Katie.

David, who has over 30 years photography experience and specialises in family portrait photography said, “I am delighted to have won this prestigious competition at this poignant time. We are currently celebrating 30 years of Oakley Studios with a fantastic family portrait offer aiming to raise at least £2000 for each of our nominated charities, The Luton & Dunstable Hospital NICU Unit and The British Red Cross UK (Bedfordshire).

We have a real passion for our craft and look forward to many more years offering high-quality photography and customer service to families in Bedfordshire and beyond”.

The grand final saw a panel of mums choose from the 72 images which had reached the finals from thousands of entries submitted by Cherub photographers based all over the UK. “It proved a tough decision to choose just one”. Paul Inskip FMPA of the MPA and organiser of the competition said: “it was almost impossible for the mums, the photos were all stunning”.

Katie was presented with the cheque by MPA Chairman, Ray Lowe FMPA and Paul Inskip FMPA, during a celebration lunch held at Oakley Studios. A delighted Katie said “ I was completely shocked when I saw that we had won”. Katie is still on cloud nine but indicated a family holiday is likely with some of the prize being invested for baby to enjoy when he is older.

David Doyle of Oakley Studios Luton was awarded an Associate qualification of the Master Photographer Association (AMPA) in 2006. (David first qualiified in 1994 as a licentiate with the MPA).

Associateship of the MPA, is a very difficult qualification to achieve within the photographic profession, as this takes a great deal of time, work and dedication to your art to reach this level. Many photographers entering the Association remain at Licentiate level, so reaching the required high standards of this qualification is a massive achievement.

Not only do you have to submit an extensive panel of photographic images, which are displayed and judged in front of 5 highly respected Fellows of the industry, but you also must produce an in depth working profile, about your work and business practices. This document covers essential elements such as Health & Safety, that must be understood when dealing with the public, and also documents a photographers creative approach and future ambitions.

This is the reason why the public should only book a qualified professional photographer to record those precious memories in life; their wedding, pets or family and children, as it’s the only way they have of knowing they will get the best creative photographs and personal service possible.

Sue Doyle of Oakley Studios was awarded her Licentiateship of the Master Photographer Association (LMPA) in 2008 with a stunning panel of Images of portrait, which is Sue’s speciality.

The judges’ comments given to Sue, included words like sheer quality, impact, stunning, outstanding and unique, which explained the strength of the whole panel.

Recently took my 4month old to see David and Sue for his 4month Cherub session, I took the option of the USB stick so I could print the pictures as many times as I want. All of my Christmas presents are sorted! The pictures look fab. Thank you David!
