Yesterday evening saw the private view of the Press Photographers’ Year exhibition at the National Theatre in London’s South Bank. It is a must see exhibition, highlighting the very best of press photography over the last two years, with walls of images that bring thought, sorrow, laughter and reflection. I really cannot recommend this exhibition highly enough. It’s on until August 31st, 2013, so do pass the word around and pop by.

As I mentioned in a previous blog post, I am thrilled to have received a Highly Commended award for a film I shot on the RNOH, produced and co-edited by Neil Patience and assisted by Nicola Taylor. I do hope that you can visit the RNOH Charity page and help their funding appeal.

The evening also saw the prize giving, during which some of the top names in the business of press work received certificates and prizes donated by the sponsor of the awards, Diageo. Great to see so many talented colleagues having their work recognised in this way. It was also great to see so many colleagues and friends from companies such as Canon, Pixel Rights and Fixation that back good photography attending the private view.

Also thrilled that my image, Love Your Job, was chosen for the exhibition.

The award winning RNOH film can be viewed below. Shot on Canon 5D MkII cameras and Canon lenses. The black and white reportage imagery was shot on Leica M cameras and lenses. The photography was processed in Apple’s Aperture and Nik Software’s Silver Efex Pro 2 and the entire multimedia piece was edited using FCP X.
