So VERY pleased to say that yet again I have managed to get into the final of SWPP The Photographer of the year Awards !!!!!!
I have been lucky enough to have won the Advertising and Commercial Photographer of the year in 2012 ---- the again in 2013 !! ---- coupled with the award for most Golds in that year (23 in total) . In 2014 I came runner up to my good mate George Fairbairn in the Advertising and Commercial Photographer of the year ------ and in 2015 I took a rest !!!!
2016 has been a hectic year but I managed on odd month here and there to enter this prestigious competition and accumulated 8 Golds and 12 Highly Commended awards !!!!!!
One of which is now in the Grand Final (a night of glitz and glamour at the Hilton Hotel, London)
Here is the qualifying image in the Avant Garde section of the competition. Taken in a New York Subway while on location.
I don't really get much chance to enter competitions these days due to my hectic workload. However if I get a spare minute I like to try my hand and enter some images into the mix. The SWPP monthly competition is a BIGGY ----- June alone had 956 entries !!!!
Out of the 7 images I entered in June ---- I received one Gold for this image
No less than FIVE ---- Highly Commended !!!!
6 winners out of 7 !
Not too shabby
For an old bloke !
