The weekend just gone saw the return of the Societies (SWPP) annual convention held at the London Hilton Edgware road Hotel. It was a another well attended and informative event with some amazing photography, as well as winners for the annual awards.
Adobe sponsored some of the awards, one of which was the Overall 3rd place, which was won by Trev Wilson. We would like to congratulation Trev on this award and pay tribute to his amazing photograph of this Kingfisher.
I started photographing Wildlife purely as a hobby about 10 years ago then accidentally fell into equestrian events and set up quite a successful company covering events all over the North West as a result of this I was asked if Id shoot a couple of weddings and the lure of being fed, getting paid more and actually socialising whilst I worked got me hooked. So no more standing in the rain for 12 hours shooting horses. Since then Ive mentored by Damian Mcgillicuddy for 4 years and run a successful portrait studio in Wallasey Merseyside. The people side of my photography is pretty much self generating now so 18 months ago I decided to go back to where it started for me and shoot wildlife for me again. Ambitions / future Id love to spend extended time photographing African wildlife and phase out the weddings & people completely.
