Digital Photo / Practical Photography POTY (Photographer of the Year) Shortlisted Finalist!



I am delighted to announce that I was a shortlisted finalist in the Portraits round of the highly popular Digital Photo / Practical Photography POTY (Photographer of the Year) 2011 competition!

The shot which was judged to be in the top 10 out of nearly 2,000 entries was the one above, taken at an organised model shoot at ‘The Interlude’ in Leicester. The model in the shot is Faye (NSFW link) who was absolutely fantastic to work with, and in my opinion she made the shot.

Whilst I didn’t win the grand prize, I believe a top 10 finish is something to be really proud of, and it wins me £150 worth of Jessops vouchers – which will inevitably be spent on more kit to help me make even better photographs!

The photo was published in the August issues of Practical Photography and Digital Photo – which can be seen below. Alternatively, to hear what the judges had to say about my photograph, please watch the video slideshow at Photoanswers
