Having shot over 4000 Cherubs Sessions, Collin is a master of capturing those beautiful expressions that melt mums hearts
Collin Davies LMPA – Engineering the regions to the forefront of The Association
Collin Davies has been a loyal member of the Master Photographers Association for over 3 decades and a Cherubs Partner for over 20 years, which accounts for 80% of his business today.
Starting out his career as an engineer for Ford, Collin decided to follow his passion for photography and become a business owner when fate dealt the cards and he was faced with a life changing event, finding himself a single parent to his then 9 year old daughter.
Building his studio in a stable block that was connected to his home, a small town a few miles outside Swansea called Pontarddulais, Collin took control of his life and took the plunge into full-time professional photography. He gained an Associateship with the RPS in 1986 with a study in Black and White Portraiture. After 52 years photographing weddings, Collin shot his last wedding in 2016 and now focusses purely on portraiture.
Collin has been an MPA Director for 5 years, running a very strong welsh region. The regions boasts a very tight family unit holding regular meetings and encourages both members and non members to attend the regional meetings.
Collin can also be found sharing his business knowledge within the Cherubs community as a Cherubs Ambassador. His new role on the Board of Directors as Chair of Chairs sees Collin overseeing the regional chairs, ensuring all regions have a voice at board level and reports back all relevant information to the regional chairs to pass onto their members. Perhaps one of the most important roles on the new board as the Chair takes the next steps in the Association in building the regions.
