Yey! I’m so excited to be sharing the news with you that last night The Guild of Photographers named me as their 2013 Photographer of the Year!

I went along to their awards ceremony in Crewe and met up with many of my friends who also work in the industry. It was a lovely evening; a chance to get my glad rags on, let my hair down and celebrate what has been an amazing year for KW Photography. In 2013 I was awarded a total of thirty-five awards from The Guild, including 3 ‘Gold Awards’, for my portrait photography and I knew that I was in the top ten for the Photographer of the Year award, so I went along to the ceremony with my fingers and toes crossed that I might win. And I did! I still can’t believe it!

At the event I was among many of the country’s very best photographers and it was extremely humbling to be recognised among such a talented bunch. The Guild’s annual awards are highly prized by photographers throughout the country and abroad, so to come away with the title of Photographer of the Year (and the trophy to prove it) is certainly one of my most proudest moments in my career. I absolutely love my job!
