That time of the year when the competitions start again! I entered the Guild of Photographers monthly competition and really chuffed to receive a bronze award on all three of them! I am so loving working in the new studio in Everton, Lymington, Hampshire.
Thought I would share my excitement to win this award over the weekend. Such a shame I couldn't make the Guild of Photographers award ceremony to receive my certificate. All my efforts of entering the competition regularly over last year have paid off. So happy!!!!
PHOTOGRAPHERS BAR WINNERS Catherine Dashwood
FINALLY - THE PHOTOGRAPHERS BAR
Becoming a member of the Photographer's Bar is a unique distinction awarded to those photographers who have had images assessed by the Guild via the Image of the Month competition over the course of a competition year, attaining a score the equivalent of a point for each entry made.
In other words any member who can secure 24 points in one section of the Photography of the Year Title chases from 24 images in any 8 months of the same competition year will be awarded honorary life membership of the 'Photographer's Bar' in order to acknowledge the fact they have submitted strong images consistently throughout the year in competition judged in accordance with national scoring criteria - a distinction that is very difficult to achieve!!
Membership of this exclusive club is clearly something to aim for…and achieving it also has great marketing potential for those in business.
Ted was the perfect gentleman for his photoshoot. I think he only needed one take on all his shots. Never known a shoot to be so easy. His Mum and Dad came and collected their digital images and artwork today, so I can now share his images. Just loved him!
When you cross a chocolate labrador with a sprocker (Springer/Cocker) you end with a gorgeous dog like Boo! Just loved photographing him.
Helping Hampshire Hounds Dog Rescue in photographing this very gorgeous girl called Nola. Fingers crossed she finds a lovely new home soon.
Wow what a gorgeous boy! Ed came to the studio last week and he totally rocked his session. I think he made it hard for his Mum to choose her favourite image. Springers just have so much personality!
A private commission today with the most handsome of dogs, Dudley. This gorgeous boy is a Hovawart and weighs over seven stone. Such a gentle boy.
Handsome Maximus had his photo taken today. He is a rescue dog with Dawg Dogs. He is adorable and totally loved his photoshoot!
