Monir Ali has just been voted Regional Chair of the South East Region of the British Institute of Professional Photography (BIPP) by members.
The BIPP is recognised across the world as a benchmark of excellence, with the Institute’s tiered qualification structure offering photographers continual professional development.
Monir will work alongside the head office organising events, workshops and meetings to help train, educate, support and qualify professional photographers in the region.
Monir who has been a full time photographer for 12 years said, “It’s a great honour to be able to represent a long-standing institution like this, at a regional level, and to be responsible for the development of professional photography in the region is humbling.”
He adds “For over a hundred years the British Institute of Professional Photography has been supporting and providing a voice of the photographers, and to be added to that voice fills me with pride.
“I know its not easy for our industry now, but that’s what the BIPP is there for, to support, nurture and provide a voice to photographers. I look forward to working with the current members as well as welcoming new members to the British Institute of Professional Photography”
