This is Marius Barbulescu – Collection Seven Judge
Excited to announce the second of our five judges for Collection Seven: The fantastic Marius Barbulescu! Marius is based in Romania and shoots all over the world; we can’t wait to see what he picks as winners (along with our other four judges) at the end of January (deadline for submissions is 23:59 GMT on 24th January 2019).
Marius has won a whole host of Awards, including Fearless (where he was a top 10 worldwide photographer in 2014), ISPWP, MyWed and WPS – as you can see from just the few examples on this page, he has a brilliant eye for the natural moment, capturing them with creativity and panache.
We think it’s vital that our judges are world-class photographers in their own right, and Marius is no exception to this. Of course, this means that it is incredibly difficult to obtain a Reportage Award (for great individual captures) or a Story Award (for a series of images from a single wedding), with our judges (who change for each Collection) usually awarding less than 4% of submissions – truly the pinnacle of documentary wedding photography.
Thanks again to Marius for being one of our five judges for Collection Seven!
