Extremely happy to share that two of my images have been awarded “Marks of Excellence” in the I Shot It Photo Competition.

The first image is a street photograph, taken whilst walking around Fleet Street and The Strand after being subject of a photo shoot, in a project on The Photographers of Fleet Street.

Judges Comment: This could be a portrait, a magazine photo or a street photo. The unusual crop that allow the viewer to see more than just the alley lifts the photo to being a photo from a time period as well. Yet, everything leads to the person walking, and that is what makes it work and sets the atmosphere.

The second is an image taken of some British gentlemen out for a summer saunter. During the walk of several miles, the group popped into an art gallery and this image presented itself.

The Summer Saunter. A group of bold and independent men led by stylist Timothy Lord and The Chap Magazine’s Albion step out in style in the name of sartorial freedom, from the steps of St. Paul’s Cathedral to Mayfair’s Berkeley Square in a demonstration of solidarity with all men who dare to dress differently. London, UK.

Judges Comment: This could be the artist or just a fashionable guest at a gallery. The composition tell a story of a man, a piece of art and a city outside in one photo, elegantly framed with light and shadow. Well done!
