Newborn health & saftey qualified Master Photographer

We are newborn health and safety qualified photographers

David & Sue Doyle are the latest members of the Master Photographer’s Association (MPA) to be awarded their exclusive “Newborn Certification” status in Luton.

They are also the only photographers in Luton and Dunstable to hold this health & saftey certification.

Newborn baby photography is incredibly popular, but, without the correct procedures in place, is fraught with potential problems that could cause serious harm to such precious subjects
MPA Newborn Certification is awarded to photographers who operate using an extra “layer” of safety measures specifically aimed at photographing newborns.
By submitting a comprehensive document detailing all of their newborn photography safety practices and systems, David & Sue Doyle have now joined an elite group of professional photographers worldwide who have been assessed by the MPA.
The Certification process analyses health and safety information and covers areas such as maintaining a suitable temperature for the newborn, sanitisation of props and equipment, and looking for telltale signs that a newborn is in distress.
The MPA is the premier qualifying body for professional photographers in the UK and introduced the Newborn Certification scheme to protect the public against rogue photographers who operate without insurance or health and safety measures. Paul Cooper, MPA director of qualifications said “It’s difficult for the public to know if they are booking a professional to capture images of their new baby as anyone can buy a camera and trade as a photographer. By looking for the “Newborn Certified” logo, and checking with the MPA, we’re aiming to provide a level of reassurance that hasn’t existed before. By achieving Newborn Certification, David & Sue Doyle have shown that they operate their business with the welfare of the baby as their primary concern”.

Associate 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.
