– CAPE TOWN BIRTH PHOTOGRAPHERS ASSOCIATION –
Cape Town Birth Photographers Association (CTBPA) was founded by myself, Amy Green and Tracy Lopes of Tracy Lopes Photography. Tracy is a specialist maternity/birth & newborn photographer. CTBPA was founded in September of 2017.
We realised more and more with each interaction with hospitals across Cape Town that birth photographers were under-represented. There was no educational body facilitating the unique needs that experienced professional photographers need within the field. This left new photographers unsure of where to go and how to follow procedure. Something had to change.
The work that birth photographers do is so crucial and we firmly believe that with the right education, accreditation, education and building relationships with key stakeholders, we could bridge the divide and growing tension between photographer and hospital and medical professionals.
Since its inception, we have 20 registered and accredited members of the association with constant growth in these numbers month on month. We have conducted educational introductory workshops as well as advanced workshops on the practice and discipline of birth photography.
We have an exciting new full-day workshop planned for the summer to deep dive into this practice with experienced guest speakers and instructors. For more detailed information click here to go through to the CTBPA FACEBOOK PAGE.
