About us – VIPS Photography

ViPS photography was created in 1996 by Paul Eddom, when he became a full time photographer in York. He soon joined the MPA, Master Photographers Association, and shortly afterwards qualified, earning the title, master photographer with a panel of wedding images.

Encouraged by his peers and professional photo lab, Paul entered the MPA photographic competition in 2010. He has since won several regional and national awards from the MPA.  Including: pets, contemporary portraits, commercial, architectural, PR, events, architectural, travel & tourism and industrial. Paul has also won a National MPA Award of Excellence, a great achievement for his first national competition attempt with the industrial photo shown above.

As part of the Capture group of photographers we provide great family, individual and group portraits as well as pets. Our dog portraits have won several MPA Yorkshire region awards. Capow Superhero and Enchanted fairy sessions are also our specialities. We are also part of the Fresh group who provide makeovers to mother and daughters, individual and teens.



Paul has attended many professional photography seminars learning from some of the UK’s top commercial, wedding and portrait photographers and gaining a very good understanding of photographic lighting.
