    I have used Oakley studios for a family session and loved them so much now I am using them for their cherubs package with my new baby. Having a large family they worked wonders with our then 4 boys ( now 5) and got amazing photographs. They are both friendly and professional and I highly recommend them. I can't wait for my baby's next 2 cherub sessions and then another family session. Thank you Oakley studios. Xx

Why you should book Oakley Studios….

Associate banner Master Photographer
licentiate banner Master Photographer

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.

Licentiateship of the MPA, is the hardest 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. Entering the Association at probationary level and reaching the required high standards of this qualification is such 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 practises. This document goes into the Health & Safety elements that must be understood when dealing with the public, also have professional insurances that protect the public.

This is the reason why the public should only book a qualified professional photographer to photograph 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.
