Wow – where does the time fly ?
I seems only a couple of week ago I blogged about winning an award on the Drama Free Photography website.
As a professional photographer I think its important to constantly challenge yourself and there is no better way for a photographer to do this than entering competitions. Being judged by ones piers has always been the best way for one to grow in any profession. As a member of the PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHERS only Drama Free Photography Forum – a collection of professional photographers from all over the world, whos membership is made up with members of such photography society’s as The MPA – The Master Photographers Association, The SWPP – The Society of Wedding & Portrait Photographers, The ISPWP – The International Society of Professional Wedding Photographers, The AG|WPJA The Artistic Guild of the Wedding Photojournalist Association and many many more I enter their monthly image competitions.
February sees major changes to the competition, mainly an anonymous team of judges, each awarding marks for differing aspects of the submitted images, two submission allowed each month and the winning categories being, Gold, Silver and Bronze, to achieve Gold you need to amass more than 80 points from the judges.
I am pleased to say one of my two images submitted this month won a Bronze award.
This is the image in question
The image is from the wedding of Isabel and Phil – The wedding took place in Codsall nr Wolverhampton in the West Midlands.
If you’re a professional photographer and would like a friendly, honest forum to get good advice about your work and your business, then click on the banner below and apply for membership. Please note that the gold winners have their images shown on the slideshow, so if at work or if easily offended by nudity (artistic nudity, that is!), then maybe shield your screen from others, as one of this month’s gold winners contains just that!
