I am absolutely thrilled to have won the Metro Imaging Portfolio Awards at this year's Format Photography Festival in Derby!
It was my first attendance, to make the most out of the day, I managed to meet seven industry figures discussing my work and upcoming projects.
Nerve wrecking? Yes! Exciting? Yes! Fruitful? Very much so!
I walked away with constructive criticism from photo editors, publishers, curators and mentors, their sound advice will no doubt help me navigate the future path, and I look forward to attend the sessions next year, hopefully with fresh work that will stand up strong in front of all judges again.
Thank you for your support and such a humbling experience!
