Inevitably it’s time for another one of those annual reviews. And if you ask me it’s an exercise which is both worthy and eye-opening. It’s not about self indulgence, it’s about self reflection, to help you see what’s come before and what might just pull your interest next. My view is that writing all of this down helps you to really understand your personal progression, forces you to look both backwards and forwards and hopefully enables you to see that things have indeed moved on, that there is growth in what it is you’re trying to say to the world and even a modicum of improvement in the way it’s being presented.
I’ve been fortunate enough to have been shortlisted for Landscape Photographer Of The Year in 2011, 2012 and now 2013 with Commended images appearing in the Awards Book and feature Print Exhibition at the National Theatre Gallery on London’s Southbank for the last two years.
