TIME TO SAY THANK YOU …
December 2017, and I have just sent off my application for accreditation at EFIAP Silver Level. (Explanation here) These are the 50 images that qualified me for this honour – a mixture of surreal composites, portraits, studies in monochrome and some Nature shots. Some had multiple acceptances in Salons all over the world and achieved medals and awards, while others shone briefly and brightly in just one Salon. Larger versions of some of them can be seen on my Blog.
It has been a fantastic journey and I owe a great debt of thanks to all the models who patiently indulged my imaginings – Rachelle Summers, Mase Rowley, Hannah Frances, the models from Swifty Productions, Martyn Chapma, Beverley Chapman, Emily, Sarah Swift, Zita Lukacs, Devonn Cousins, Ellie, Rosa Brighid, Simon Strong, Tanya, Daniel Grey, Ellie Mae Bates and Tillie Feather.
Nearly all the portraits and the base pictures for the composites were shot at Studio 3 by Severn, whose owner – David Severn – went well beyond the call of duty in sharing his knowledge and providing help and experience with lighting (and producing props at a minute’s notice!) and endless tea and biscuits.
In January, another long journey – towards EFIAP Gold Level begins and I can’t wait to see what the next year brings!
Oh yes, all content on this site is mine … don’t use it for anything otherwise cousin George will have to pay you a visit.
