Scott Johnson FBIPP FSWPP Master of SWPP
Scott is an Internationally recognised, award-winning photographer based in Essex and has photographed weddings all across Europe and the United States. Known for being fun and energetic, Scott also travels the world as an educator and mentor.
After working as a second photographer for many years, he shot his first wedding solo at the age of 25 and started to forge his own path in the Wedding Photography scene in the UK, setting up ‘The Edge Photography’ in 2006. He quickly became one of the most sought after photographers in the South East of England.
It wasn’t until 2013 when he first started to enter print competitions and found success in 2014, winning the SWPP 20x16 Wedding Category, and his success continued in winning back-to-back Wedding Album of the Year with the Master Photographers Association (MPA) in the UK and Ireland in 2015 and 2016. Following on, he won the 2017 SWPP 20x16 Documentary category with a harrowing image from his trip to Auschwitz. In 2018, he was made a Master of The Societies and won The Guild of Photographers ‘Wedding image of the Year’.
One of only 19 wedding photographers to achieve a Fellowship in Wedding Photography with the British Institute of Professional Photographers (BIPP) since 1901, and one of only a handful that's achieved Fellowship in two separate fields, his second being in Documentary Photography. His documentary Fellowship on the Auschwitz camp in Poland taken entirely on film has received plaudits from across the world. He also holds a Fellowship with the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers (SWPP).
