Last month I attended the MPA South of England Print Competition and was very happy to be awarded Gold for the Studio Portrait Category!
The event was attended by photographers from all over the South of England and the awards covered a range of photography from commercial to fine art and wildlife to newborn. The studio portrait category is an important one for photographers who shoot for their clients in a studio environment. I was surprised and delighted to win the category with my portrait of Marina as well as being awarded a merit with another portrait. I also had some success in the Maternity and Newborn category and was awarded two merits.
Receiving awards is wonderful for our customers to see the hard work we put in to create the very best images for them. It’s also a way to get inspired and be encouraged to create new and interesting styles of portrait.
I have entered the National Portrait Awards and will keep you updated if I’m lucky enough to get through to the next rounds!
