Professional Photographer of the Year

January 22, 2010

We’ve won a Professional Photographer of the Year award for Social Reportage & Weddings!


The winners of the Professional Photographer of the Year Awards 2009 have been announced, whittling the 7,500 images submitted worldwide down to just one winner for each of the 10 categories.

On a whim this year I entered, not really expecting to get anywhere. After one of the weddings this year there was a particular shot that made me chuckle. It was a perfect reminder of the personalities of the couple, who were just the most fun to photograph. This little moment was what really made me fall in love with photography, when people let their guards down, think you’re not watching and put on a show.

Guess what, turns out it won the Social Reportage/Weddings category. No-one was more surprised than me, other than the poor person stood next to me in WHSmiths when I found out that is.

I’m completely bowled over, and frankly missing out on the trip to New York by a single place doesn’t matter compared to the coolness of just winning a category I am really passionate about.

So, thank you Rowena, I couldn’t have done it without you (and Nick of course!)…

From the blog

There were so many things we loved about this wedding, from the Chinese graphics, to the orchids and the horsey hoppers!
