Towards the end of my previous Blog I alluded to an image I had entered in to a competition and subsequently it has been short-listed. Well I am very pleased to say that the image above is the one. It just missed out on one of the top three awards in 2017 International Garden Photographer of the Year (Black & White section) but it did receive a Finalist Award. It is especially pleasing to know that my image will be included in to book of the competition but will have to wait until publication early next year.
Of the total 14 making up Winners, Finalists & Highly Commended 4 are from UK, 2 each from Brazil & Denmark and 1 each from China, New Zealand, Hungary, Croatia & Italy. Really is international.
Anyway if anyone is interested I am limiting this print to a maximum of 50 and the first one will be on view and for sale at the Barleylands Artisan Spring Fair on Sunday 7th May. Alternatively please get in touch directly via my contact page should you wish to discuss placing an order.
For the last 4 days Elaine and I have been at Essex Craft & Design Show at RHS Hyde Hall, it was so nice to see so many customers who took the time to come and say hello as well as increase their collection of my prints. Not only that but grateful thanks to those who purchased one for the first time. It is very gratifying to know that people feel my work is good enough to grace their homes. Thank you.
Pleased by the positive response to my book - A Photographer's Walk, Canvey Island to Shoeburyness. To order your copy please use the contact page .
Other than the event at Barleylands on Sunday I have no plans at the moment to show before December although that can always change. Nevertheless my work remains on sale so please fell free to contact me if you want to own a piece or pieces of my work.
Two Blogs in about a fortnight is probably enough for you so I will wish you well and sign off.
