Amongst the awards handed out in the BIPPs northwest regional category Martin - who works for Stockport-based marketing communications agency mda:creative - completed a clean sweep of the fashion section by winning all five awards, and also picked up three for commercial advertising photography, one for studio portraiture and one for child photography. He topped this off by also winning the BIPPs prestigious Licentiate of the Year Award, the second time hes achieved this in just 3 years!
Its good to know that your work is being recognised, especially when that recognition comes from fellow professional photographers, says Martin. Ive been working in photography for around 17 years now, and these sorts of awards acknowledge the work Ive put in during that time.
Martin makes something of a habit out of scooping BIPP awards, comments mda:creative managing director Rob Jacobs. He won 6 awards in 2003 and 8 in 2004, and were delighted that he sets such a high standard for our company.
