I echo what Abers says. There is no value in an organisation where the only criteria of acceptance is that you have paid the requisite fee, which I believe is how SWPP runs.
I would put the owness on finding out about a photographer's abilities on the customer. It can't be too diffuclt to ask to see previous work and if it is, find someone else, there are plenty out there.
I've done a few weddings and been asked to do a few more. The first thing I say is have you seen any of my work and what do you think. The feel I get is that people are more concerned with a cheap price rather than finding out what the quality of the work is like.
I joined the National Association of Photoshop Professionals, not because I wanted to tell people I was a member but because I wanted access to their video tutorial bank. If someone wanted quality Photoshop work they could have found me in the membership list and used me despite me knowing absolutely nothing about Photoshop.
Who has the say on what criteria someone must meet before they are allowed do do a wedding or any other kind of paid photography?
