Awards and Exhibitions
Building a reputation as an outdoor and travel photographer is as challenging as it is rewarding. In a short space of time, I have won and picked up several UK & International photography awards and nominations across a variety of themes covering travel, seascape, landscape, cityscape, architecture, fine art, minimalist and black & white. Judging is typically based on a range of factors including but not limited to creativity, lighting, composition, timing, technical merit, post-processing, impact and one’s story-telling ability. I am delighted to share with you some of my successes on my journey so far.
