I am a female photographer based in Essex. Weddings, Events, Portraits, and Boudoir.

MPA – Certification

MPA Certified logo

Today I got an email from the Master Photographers Association (“MPA”) advising me that I had obtained my Certification Status.

Does that make me a Master Photographer – no NOT YET BUT SOON I hope!

This is the first step in obtaining my Master Photographers qualification, which I will be undertaking in both portrait and wedding photography.

I submitted a rather long document which stated where I started my photography, my experience and my ambitions for Kessex Photography in the future, I had to set out my working practices, to show that I have all the necessary professional controls in place as a professional photographer, insurances, health & safety, risk assessments, workflow etc.

A panel of judges reviewed this document and also checked my website for the images that are being provided to the public are of a standard they would expect of their members.

Like I say this is the first step, and in early 2019 I will be looking to obtain my Masters Qualification in Portraiture and later in the year for Weddings. This will involve the submission to a panel of judges of 20 of my photos with information on the set up etc, it all sounds so simple, but these judges are some of the best in the industry evaluating my use of light, posing and quality of images.

So being certified means that you can be assured that Kessex Photography has all the necessary insurances and practices in place to undertake your photography needs and that I am constantly improving and working with some of the best names in the industry to deliver the best images to my clients.

Of course I will keep you updated in respect of my qualification and that this time next year there will be a Master Photographers Licentiate Qualification rosette to go with this one :O)

Remembrance Sunday


On Sunday I attended the Remembrance Day with The Collective in Brentwood.

The Collective are a group of scooter enthusiasts who organise and ride out together regularly they do a lot for the local community and are even organising a toy run for Christmas.

They had a beautiful poppy wreath to lay at Brentwood and they allowed me to tag along on four wheels rather than two.

It was a great day with some of the nicest people you could meet, they made me feel amazingly welcome (regardless of my two too many wheels).

So thank you to The Collective for making me feel like part of the team and for a great day out for such a wonderful Remembrance Day and I am sure that the toy run will be a great success.



I held a photo shoot at Coal House Fort in East Tilbury this weekend open to all who wanted to attend.

I am going through the photos now but just caught this one I thought I would share for now.

I had placed the bikes throughout the setting ready for various photos to be taken, had just finished a shoot with a smoke grenade as I walked away turned and saw this the last remnants of the grenade helping to highlight the sunbeams across a few of the bikes.

So serene

Open Photo Shoot

Kessex Photography will be at Coal House Fort this Sunday for a photo shoot with scooter owners mod and the vintage look.

The sun is scheduled to appear and this should make for a lovely time for everyone to have photos taken.

This event is part of my Master Photographers Association qualification so everyone is welcome to join me in East Tilbury in Essex from 12.00 at Coal House Fort.

As a thank you we will be letting you choose some free digital photos from the day.
