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.
Twice The Fun. A child runs around whilst bathed in rays of sunlight in the turbine hall. Tate Modern, during a heat wave bank holiday. Bankside, London, UK. May 06, 2018. Photo: Edmond Terakopian
Windrush Passenger. Alford Gardner, one of the few surviving Windrush passengers, from the 1948 SS Empire Windrush, which left Jamaica bound for Britain. Portrait photographed by the River Thames, South Bank, London, UK. May 25, 2018. Photo: Edmond Terakopian
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.
The photograph was shot using a Panasonic Lumix G9 with a Leica DG 12-60mm f2.8-4.0 lens. The raw photograph was then processed in Adobe Lightroom CC Classic and the monochrome treatment finalised in Alienskin Exposure X3.
