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.
It gives me great excitement to announce that for the second year running I have been Commended in the UK's premier Landscape Photographer Of The Year Awards and my image Rebourne has been featured in this year's Honours Book (Collection 7).
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.
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.
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.
I've been lucky enough to secure a place on one of Michael Levin's special workshop events this coming August in Brighton. The world famous Canadian fine art photographer is once again coming to the UK to host a a two day fully interactive session on his work, technique and and the art of making photographic art.
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.
