With a couple of months to go, I now have 38 of 50 pictures required to qualify for my EFIAP/s. I already have the obligatory 100 acceptances, so just the dirty dozen to find between now and Christmas.
From top left, clockwise: The Cheaters, Private Dancer, Hair Raiser, Beginners Please, The Girl in the Blue Scarf, Robin Redbreast in Song, Menace, Vintage Pin Up.
Thanks to models Martyn, Hannah, Mason, Rachelle and Ellie Mae.
And a big thank you, as usual, to Studio 3 by Severn.

The postman delivered my certificate, badge and photographer’s card from Fédération Internationale de l’Art Photographique’, or FIAP (Eng. The International Federation of Photographic Art), an international organization of national associations of photography. More than 85 national associations are members, comprising nearly one million individual photographers. In order to qualify for my EFIAP (the E stands for excellence), i had to have at least 250 acceptances into International Exhibitions, with a total of at least 50 different photographs. The acceptances had to come from at least 30 different salons with FIAP Patronage, and those salons had to be spread over at least 20 different countries. So, this is the accumulation of two years work.
I guess you could say I’m happy, happy, happy!
