January 1, 2016

Mike Guilbault, owner of Mike Guilbault Photography in Elmvale, Ontario, is very pleased to announce receipt of the Award and Designation of "Master Photographer in Fine Art" from the Master Photographers International Organization (

Announced in September of 2015, the actual designation certificate, trophy, medallion and lapel pin were delivered just before Christmas. The award is earned by passing an extensive portfolio review by the MPIO Board of Directors and Judging Committee, serving the organization and adhering to a stringent code of ethics as set out by the MPIO. The Master Photographer designation is the highest level a photographer can achieve in any one area of professional photography within the organization. This places Guilbault amongst some of the most notable photographers, not only in Canada, but internationally as well.

Guilbault states, "I am not only pleased but also honoured to receive this prestigious award. The outstanding quality of work and professionalism by other Master members in this organization sets a very high standard, and I'm proud to be considered worthy of inclusion. I endeavour to bring this standard of quality to my clients on every shoot."

This is not the first award Guilbault has received. In addition to numerous distinctions for outstanding photography in competition, Accreditations in Fine Art, Portraiture and Commercial photography, he was also awarded the "Master of Photographic Arts" in 2008 and "Craftsman of Photographic Arts" in 2005, from the Professional Photographers of Canada.
