It might seem like an odd thing to announce towards the end of 2014 but it only just came to my attention that I’ve previously been awarded five Honorable Mentions at the International Photography Awards 2012. I guess the email got lost somewhere along the way, but it was only by chance that someone pointed out this fact out to me recently.
I’m very pleased to confirm that for the fourth year running I have been short listed for Take A View Landscape Photographer Of The Year. As always it’s a contentious competition but many landscape photographers in the UK want to do well in it nonetheless, myself definitely included.
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.
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.
I’ve been fortunate enough to add the wonderful 36MP Nikon D800 to my gear lately and to make the most of it a Zeiss 21mm f/2.8 ZF.2 into the bargain too. The limited time I’ve had so far with them (thanks to the foul weather of late) just leads me to confirm what a genuinely wonderful combination this will prove in time.
Just received some very welcome news this afternoon – my image Stories From Atlantis has won Nikon UK’s National In-Frame Monthly competition for January, which is subject to a public vote. This is my first competition success of 2012 and I’d like to thank everyone that took the time to vote for my image.
