A bittersweet email from the British Journal of Photography and 1854 Media Awards let me know that “…your entry made it to the second & final round of judging, we regret to tell you that your image has not been shortlisted on this occasion”.
Still, nice to make it that far! Rather than the work remain unseen, thought I would share my Portrait Of Britain here and show the ten images I entered for the awards.
Many thanks to the judges and many congratulations to those shortlisted.
Camera and lens details can be found in all the captions below. All raw files were edited and processed using Adobe Lightroom Classic and finished off in either Alienskin Exposure X4 or Nik Collection Silver Efex Pro.
Absolutely thrilled to see the fabulous Travel Photographer Of The Year exhibition. So many stunning photographs in such a wonderful setting, just by the River Thames and City Hall, with a backdrop of Tower Bridge in London, UK. The free, open air exhibition is on until April 30th this year.
It’s great to have one of my images in the show. Shot on my Panasonic Lumix G9 with the wonderful Leica DG 50-200mm. If you like the image, I would appreciate if you could vote for it please 🙂 To vote, please use this link and choose image number 53. Thank you 🙂
Very happy to share that one of my images has won second place, a “Merit Of Excellence”, in the Professional Category of the Silhouette section, in the 12th International Color Awards. The image was kindly chosen by judges from 7241 entries, from 79 countries.
Many congratulations on all the other winners and nominees and my thanks to the judges for their hard work.
It was shot on my Panasonic Lumix G9 with a Leica DG 50-200mm f2.8-4.0 lens (giving an equivalent of 100-400mm). The raw image was processed using Lightroom and finished in Alienskin Exposure X4 on my Mac Pro, using calibrated Eizo CG monitors for colour accuracy.
I’m thrilled to share that two of my images from 2018 have been shortlisted in the British Photography Awards 2019. The images are finalists in the Street Photography and Portrait categories.

I’d like to thank the judges for putting together the shortlisted images and also congratulate the other shortlisted photographers for some truly spectacular images.
For those interested in the equipment used, both images were shot using a Panasonic Lumix G9. The running child was shot using a Leica DG 50-200mm f2.8-4.0 lens and the portrait was shot using a Leica DG 25mm Summilux. Both images were shot in raw and processed in Adobe Lightroom, with the final black and white treatment being completed using Alienskin Exposure X3.
The photograph was commended in the Urban View section and is the second time the competition has kindly awarded my work. The image will be printed in the forthcoming book and will be part of the digital display at the exhibition. Many congratulations to the winning photographers and judges.
