Award winning photographer!

June 6th, 2010

I’m not a par­tic­u­lar­ly proud per­son, I keep all my thou­sands of ground break­ing acheive­ments to myself, infact i’m prob­a­bly the most hum­ble and mod­est per­son you’ll ever meet, if that is, you’ll ever be lucky enough to ever meet me.

I’m jok­ing of course, i’m not that bad, but last night before we were ready to call it a night, just like a lit­tle boy who real­ly does­n’t want to go to bed, found every excuse to stay up a lit­tle longer.
I did my usu­al stint of check­ing every web­site that I fol­low to see if any of my favorite pho­tog­ra­phers had blogged, checked my Twit­ter, e‑mail, face­book. I’ll just look at the WPJA site too, I knew I had­n’t won any­thing because I had­n’t heard any­thing from them.
So I was *pret­ty hap­py* when I saw that one of my images came in the top ten. EVEN hap­pi­er when I saw that anoth­er of my images had been award­ed 3rd place in one of the cater­gories! I may of screamed like a school girl! I am now very proud!

I’ve been a mem­ber of the WPJA since Octo­ber of last year, and the amount of book­ing that I have received has been incredible!
So con­grat­u­la­tions to all the oth­er WPJA win­ners, espe­cial­ly the ones from the UK. It’s always nice to see pho­tog­ra­phers who are nice and close!
Please make sure that you view the oth­er win­ning pho­tos here. They are all amaz­ing! Hon­est­ly, in fact, mine look pig awful in comparison!

Both of my win­ning pic­tures are from Owen and Jane’s wed­ding at Clear­well Cas­tle. A venue that I know quite well.
I’m very pleased to be giv­en recog­ni­tion for the sec­ond shot. By far, that room, for me is the hard­est room to shoot in. Ever.
