Product Photographer Gains Fellowship with SICIP
Product Photographer With A Love of Guitars
Norfolk based product photographer Joe Lenton has joined a very select group of photographers by earning his FSICIP title. At the time of writing, just 5 people worldwide hold a Fellowship with the Society of International Commercial and Industrial Photographers (SICIP). Fellowship is the highest distinction that can be earned with The Societies of Photographers and is a recognition of the highest technical and artistic standards of photography.
Joe’s qualification panel of 20 prints shows his skill as an elite product photographer. He chose the theme of guitars to reflect his previous career as a musician. Most of the guitars were photographed using tilt-shift lenses to give greater control of composition and depth of field.
Below is the hanging plan that shows how the prints were displayed for the assessment:
2022 marked the 10th anniversary since Joe was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS). The illness put an end to his music career but it was also the beginning of a new one. Joe took up photography initially as a therapeutic exercise to help him get out and about more. Over just 10 years, things evolved to the point where Joe now works as a product photographer and architectural photographer serving an international client base.

Ambassador, Fellow & Commercial Photographer
Joe’s Fellowship comes just a few months after being selected to be an Ambassador for The Societies of Photographers. He is also currently in training with them as a Junior Judge. His previous qualifications in portraits (ASWPP), landscapes (ASINWP, ADPS) and interior photography (ASICIP) mean that he has a solid base for and deep knowledge of working and judging in various genres.
From his base in Norfolk, Joe enjoys working as a product photographer for local, national and international brands. His background in languages and cultural studies means that he has a strong grasp of using images as a form of communication. This sets him apart from other photographers in a competitive marketplace.
