Master Photographers Association Awards

Award Of Excellence
At the end of 2013 I entered the Master Photography Awards. The Awards are for fully qualified members of the Association and other professional photographers and is open worldwide.

The awards provide members the opportunity to benchmark their work and development against a recognised framework. Winning an Award also demonstrates your commitment to continual personal development and positions you as a forward thinking photographer.

Bringing the Photographic Industry together, with unprecedented Awards across 25 categories, the Master Photography Awards is the most anticipated event in the professional Photographic calendar, recognising the greatest talent in the photographic image-making industry. 

The standard of imagery entered was exceptional and two of the images I entered won an Award Of Excellence which I was absolutely delighted with.

What Does 2014 Hold For Us?

New Year.Wishing you all a very Happy New Year. A little late I know but however you celebrated I hope it was happy and peaceful. I have to say that I'm glad 2013 came to an end, for me personally it was an awful year, work-wise it was superb.

Just before Christmas I lost one of my best friends. A person who has always been there for me, supported me, let me be the person I am, shown me unconditional love. A person with who I have shared the very best of times, we laughed - a lot, shared our sad times, every memory involves this person. So who is this remarkable person? My Mum.At 68 she wasn't old and we still had lots to do, places to visit, gossiping, lunches, flowers to plant, handbags to buy and so forth.

It's made me think about the cliché - life is precious. Just worked out that whilst it may be an overused phrase it's very true. If you aspire to something and it is within your reach, do it. So 2014 is all about getting on with it, pushing ahead and giving it a go.
