At the weekend I attended the annual award ceremony of The Societies of Photographers’, the largest photographic society in the UK.
I was just one of three photographers who had been shortlisted for the ‘Child Photographer of the Year’ award. This portrait of my daughter Lizzie was one of my Gold award-winning images which contributed to the nomination.
I didn’t win the ‘Child Photographer of the Year’ title on the night sadly, but I did come in second place!
And to think that this was out of thousands of other photographers, not only from the UK but also from across Europe and the USA!
I’m absolutely delighted with that result.
My work was judged by a panel of highly respected professional photographers and deemed second best out of the work of literally thousands of other photographers. I certainly had reason to celebrate!
To say there was a lot of creative talent in that room on Saturday night would be an understatement!
The standard of the work, across all the award categories, was extremely high. This makes me all the prouder for having been part of the small group of shortlisted photographers.
I don’t often get the chance to get glammed up and so I really enjoy the photography awards events every year. It was a really fun event. I also got the chance to catch up with some of my pro photographer friends, and celebrate their nominations and successes too.
2016 was an absolutely fantastic year for KW Photography!
I've worked with so many wonderful clients. And as a result of a lot of hard work, training and practice, my on-location photography portraiture has developed to the point where I now feel as accomplished using natural light outdoors, as I am with artificial light in my photography studio.
To have won Gold awards throughout the year and to have been nominated, and come second in the title race for the Child Photographer of the Year award was the cherry on the cake!
So, if you are wanting any professional portraits taken of your children this year by a ‘Child Photographer of the Year’ nominee, take a look at my gallery for examples of my work and find out more about my portrait sessions here!
