This is the most exciting thing to ever happen to me!
I’ve got something extremely exciting to tell you today. In fact, it’s so exciting that I can hardly breathe right now!!
… and it relates to the Rangefinder Fine Art Photography Awards.
In case you don’t already know, Rangefinder (Rf) is the award-winning monthly magazine for wedding and portrait photographers. It has been covering the photographic industry for more than 60 years.
Rangefinder runs a Fine Art Photography awards – an international annual competition that attracts hundreds of thousands of entries from photographers all over the world.
This year I entered my series of black and white portraits ‘ Soul Searching’ – where ‘”I tried to create enough mood that the story is spoken through the eyes.”
International fine art photography award news
I entered because I wanted to establish myself as a fine art portrait photographer.
Providing a modern fine art portrait photography service to my private clients, and I running international fine art photography trainings workshops across the UK, Europe and beyond – I felt entering this competition was for me very important.
Being my first time to enter this competition, it was a huge shock to have received some amazing, unbelievable, thrilling and literally heart-stopping news today…
I have not only WON FIRST PLACE in the Portrait category….
But also, I am the GRAND PRIZE WINNER of the entire competition!!!!!
OMG! I’m struggling to put into words how I am feeling right now…..
