A risk assessment will also be included. In addition to these documents, applying members will be required to submit five prints of newborn babies together with ‘before-and-after’ shots to illustrate the safe support of newborn throughout the session.’ He continued, ‘This certification will demonstrate the commitment, skill and professionalism of all the members who achieve it, will distinguish them in a competitive market and is destined to become a benchmark that parents can use to identify responsible photographers.’
