Awards

If you aren’t happy unless your photographer has won some awards,
I’ve listed below some of the trophies and shiny things that I’ve won.

I no longer make photographs ‘for awards’,
it’s something that I once did to give myself goalposts,
aimpoints, and to improve my work.

I now feel that my work has reached a level where it makes sense to compete with myself, rather than with others.

I am always critical of my own work, striving to improve what I do,
and when making images, I am mindful of my clients expectations, their hopes and dreams.

 

Whenever I make an image, I might initially be excited by what I’ve made, but within seconds, my reaction is simply
‘I like that image  . . . now how can I improve it and make it even better’.

I think that self criticism is the way forward for every photographer.

I regard other photographers not as competitors, but as friends.
