MPA Central Region Awards Winner!

Our industry is currently in awards season and the results are coming in!

Yesterday I attended the Master Photographers Association (MPA) Central Region Awards. The MPA Central Region covers professional photographers based between Peterborough and Bath – quite a big area! I was thrilled to learn that I won first place/Gold award in the Children’s Portraiture category, plus I won the Judges Choice Award! In addition to that I was awarded 2nd place/Silver awards in the Classical Portrait, Studio Portrait and in the Fine Art categories.

Shown here are a selection of images that won at the Awards.

In addition to that, today I was notified by the Royal Photographic Society (RPS) that two of my images have been shortlisted for their International Photography Exhibition. This major exhibition has been running annually for the last 160 years! Fingers crossed they make it to the final stage!

A big thank you to my clients who’s photos did so well in the competitions!

    Christopher Hall - Hi,

    This is so encouraging and gives me something to aim for. I am relatively new to family portraits and have just joined the RPS. Maybe one day I will be competing against you, although looking at your photos I have a long way to go (and a few more clients to find).
