Master Craftsman Qualification Panel

Master Craftsman Qualification for Julie Moult based in Kirkby Mallory, Leicester, Family Portrait Photographer at Jules Photography & Little Creases Newborn Photography

This last year, as many of my clients will be aware, I have been working on a collection of images to present to The Guild Of Photographers for assessment for my Craftsman Qualification.

I am absolutely thrilled to announce that finally last week my completed panel of images were judged by the Guilds team of International judges and I was actually awarded the “Master Craftsman” Qualification. This award means so much to me for many reasons but possibly the most important reason is that I know I am giving a truly Professional Quality Service and Product to my clients and Master Craftsman is a title I intend to live up to for the rest of my photographic career.

Throughout my photographic Journey I have participated In many training days with various Photographers in particular Damien Lovegrove who I found extremely helpful and inspiring and I have always come away with new techniques that I have been able to apply to my own work. I think its very important to develop your own style and take inspiration from others to improve your own work and training is invaluable.

Learning to see images as a collection that represents your personal style is not always easy and my Guild Mentor Julie Oswin, a wonderfully talented acclaimed photographer, has played a huge role in helping me put these images together, and I am truly indebted to her for guiding me and encouraging me. She is a wonderful person and a fantastic trainer within the business of photography.

I would like to thank all of my clients, even if your imagesare not in this panel, you have all had an input and been extremely inspirational to me.

and finally thank you to The Guild for being such a nurturing organisation I love being a member of such a warm and friendly group of Photographers from all walks of life

Calendar girls Shoot to raise funds for The Down’s Syndrome Association

This month I had the honour of being the chosen photographer for a “Calendar Girls” style shoot to raise money for The Down’s Syndrome Association with the amazing midwives at Miracle In Progress 3d/4d scanning clinic in Shepshed Leicester. After initial discussions over a christmas meal we were thinking maybe just a simple fine art shoot at my Leicester Studio here in Kirkby Mallory, with just a couple of pictures…Jo who owns Miracle in Progress was keen to get the ball rolling and after a couple of days the simple shoot had progressed into a full calendar! … so with little time to lose I got my head down and sketched out a few ideas for various images and the date was set and props were ordered! When Mums Julia & Hannah were told of our idea they were only too happy to bring Eliza & Jorga along to be our leading little ladies! From the moment Eliza & Jorga entered the studio they filled our hearts with joy… they were both absolute little angels. we all LOVE working with babies so were all in our element.

Every image that I had planned worked perfectly I couldn’t have asked for more from the babies and the midwives, then when one of the girls backed out at the last minute Julia & Hannah stepped in and saved the day..I have to say the portraits of the Mums and babies are my favourite images from the shoot. The images were then edited super quickly that night as the Daily papers wanted them forwarding to promote the Down’s syndrome Awareness Day which was the 21st March

Please help us raise as much as we can you can purchase our lovely A3 Calendar for just £9.99 here

Jules is awarded Photographers Bar in 3 Categories with The Guild

Local photographer achieves national acclaim!

Local photographer Julie Moult has been granted membership of the ‘Photographers Bar’ and was the only person in the UK to do so in 3 different photographic areas.

Membership of the ‘Photographers Bar’ is a unique distinction awarded to those photographers who have successfully had images assessed by the Guild of Photographers over the course of a year and have attained a score that evidences an exceptional level of professional skill and consistency throughout that a full year.

The Guild of Photographers is a highly respected association for all photographers and it’s competition attracts up to 1000 images for judging by an an expert Panel of Judges each month. Points are given to entries and these are then totaled at the end of the year. Those who reach the required threshold are then awarded membership of the ‘Photographers Bar’.

That membership of the ‘Photographers Bar’ is a distinction that is very difficult to achieve – in fact less than 100 photographers have achieved it in the 3 years since its inception, during which time over 30,000 images will have been entered for assessment by photographers across the UK and from overseas.

Guild Director Lesley Thirsk said “I am delighted for Julie as this is a great achievement! Submitting and having images assessed every month for a year and reaching the required standards to become a member of the Photographers Bar is very very demanding. It illustrates her commitment, skill and consistency. She should be very proud of what she has achieved!”

On hearing the news Julie who runs Little Creases Leicester Newborn Photography & Jules Photography said …. I am absolutely thrilled to receive these awards…I am always working to improve my skills and produce beautiful images for my clients. Becoming a member of The Guild has enabled me to enter images each month for assessment which provides me with the right environment to grow and keep on track of my progress.

You can find out more about this award and the Guild of Photographers at their website (www.photoguild.co.uk) and more about Julie at her website www.julesphotography..org

If you have any further questions please either contact Lesley at the Guild (lesley@photoguild.co.uk) or Julie at julie@julesphotography.org

10 of my Images Nominated for National Acclaim!!!

The New Year brought with it 4 Magical emails from the Guild of Photographers I cannot express how honoured I am to have my images nominated for the National Annual Awards again this year and to be considered one amongst some of THE best photographers in the Country!

PRESS RELEASE

Leicester Newborn, Baby, Family & Pet Photographer Jules of Jules Photography & Little Creases achieves National Acclaim!
Jules, a photographer based in Kirkby Mallory, Nr Hinckley Leicester has reached the Final of the fiercely contested Guild of Photographers Image of the Year Competition.

  The Guild is a highly respected UK based association for photographers which has members from overseas as well. Each year it runs an on-line monthly photographic competition with awards being given each month to the very best of the entries.

During the course of 2015, the competition attracted nearly 10,000 entries in 4 categories, and this week the Guild’s Judges have selected just 10 images in the various genres from the very best of the monthly entries, to go forward to the annual Final. Jules‘s has had 10 images Nominated within the 4 Categories of Pet Portraits, Babies & Toddler, Newborn and Maternity

 & children.

Guild Director Lesley Thirsk said “One of the Guild’s aims is to drive standards and creativity amongst photographers. Our monthly competition certainly does that, for the standard of the entries we see each month is quite staggering. To have an image recognised by the Guild in the monthly competition is difficult enough, so to have an image selected as being one of the best 10 in a category for the end of year Final is a quite remarkable achievement, and shows just how talented a photographer Jules is.

”

Jules said “I live for my photography and put a lot of effort into developing my skills. One way I do that is to enter the Guild’s competition. It drives forward photography standards month after month so it helps me push myself. The images I see getting awards each month are inspirational, so knowing just how high those standards are, to have my images selected within the 10 to go through to the Final from the whole year’s entries is really really exciting. I couldn’t believe it when I found out.”



Jules’s image along with the others will now be printed ready for the Competition Final later in January, and the overall winner will be announced at a lavish Awards night in a magnificent Jacobean mansion in Cheshire on 6th February.

A great start to 2016!

My first Fine Art Family portrait Session for 2016!

I first met Faye & Kyle last year for their Newborn session with gorgeous baby Kayden…absolutely loved their shoot so when Faye contacted me over Christmas to see if I could fit her Family in for a shoot..the answer was of course …absolutely! Faye’s brother Ian was over on a surprise rare visit from Sydney Australia and to have the opportunity to capture this gorgeous family all together was an honour!

They filled my studio here in Kirkby Mallory Leicester (literally!) with laughter and love and I had such a lovely time with them all!

Creating beautiful memories to treasure!
