Welcome to the This is Reportage blog, where we'll be sharing lots and lots of documentary wedding photography goodness. Check back frequently for the latest features…
We just revealed the winners of Collection Nine, and, as always, our Story Awards are a huge part of this. Although individual captures should still be awarded and celebrated (hence our Reportage Awards), we think its vital that we also celebrate the skill and artistry of storytelling; of consistent and creative coverage. That’s why we have our Story Awards, which are for a series of 15 – 20 images all from the same wedding. Here’s a Story Award from Collection Nine by Franck Boutonnet.
Excited to bring you a different special today: Philippe Swiggers was one of our judges for Collection Nine (the winners of which were revealed yesterday), and he was very kind to write down some of his thoughts, tips, advice – and things that he himself learned from the judging process. This really is an incredibly insightful piece; thank you so much for sharing, Philippe!
It’s always so exciting when we can reveal the results of a Collection, and today is no exception, as we announce the absolutely brilliant winners of Collection Nine!
It’s incredibly difficult to get one of our Awards; they really do represent the very pinnacle of documentary wedding photography. In Collection Nine our five judges (who change for each round) awarded just the top 3% of individual captures (our Reportage Awards) and the top 5% of wedding Stories (our Story Awards; for a series of 15 – 20 images all taken at the same wedding).
Thrilled to reveal our fifth and final judge for Collection Nine: The brilliant Curtis Moore of Moore Photography!
