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.
I’m very pleased to say that for the third year running I have been short listed for the Take A View Landscape Photographer Of The Year, it’s the competition that every landscape photographer in the UK wants to do well in. Last year I was featured in the Awards Book and my image Departure was selected as part of the exhibition at the National Theatre, London.
Following the news of my two Commended images at The Sony World Photography Awards 2013, it was a great pleasure to be contacted on the back of that by Nigel Morton, an editor from the Picture Desk at The Times, who asked if they could run a feature on some of my images to appear in the digital edition for iPads, Tablets and mobiles…
As the year draws to a close, it’s inevitable that we spend time reflecting on our lives and as photographers the journey we have taken through the passing months. It’s certainly been quite a big year from my point of view with a lot of changes in approach, equipment and finally ending up by wanting to inspire others and passing on much of what I’ve learned by launching a programme of workshops.
It’s certainly not every day you see your name under an image being beamed across London from the roof of a building hosting a national Landscape Photography exhibition with your image in! This was certainly a top moment which I shared with Mrs B at the Landscape Photographer Of The Year Awards 2012 at the National Theatre on London’s South Bank. The projection could be seen across Waterloo Bridge with all of the passing traffic and pedestrians being given a great visual treat.
New Zealand Based writer and photographer, Andrew Gibson has recently written a great eBook around Long Exposure titled Slow with some help from photographers like Joel Tjintjelaar and Doug Chinnery. To follow this up Andrew is running a series of interviews with other long exposure specialists and I’m very pleased to announce that he’s picked me as his first candidate.
