I entered a national portrait photography competition a few months ago and am delighted to announce that I won first prize.
I think like all skills photography requires constant practice, and I have thousands of images of my family and friends as well as all my client work. When I read about the Portrait of the Year competition run by Photoanswers I looked through my archives for something that might match their brief of an image that stands out from the crowd. (To be honest, the one I picked is my favourite photo of my daughter – it makes me smile every time I look at it.)
These were taken during an afternoon spent playing with a joke pair of water-squirting glasses that came free with a Simpsons comic:
and here is the winning photo:
So a big thank you to Digital Photo and Practical Photography magazines for choosing my photograph, and thank you to my family for putting up with constant photos!
