Mark wins Photographer of the Year award in national competition

I am delighted to have won the prestigious title of Click Photographer of the Year 2011, by the Click and Fresh group at a very special awards ceremony in North London on Sunday evening. I am so excited to have been selected from so many entries from plenty of other superb images.

I have been a member of this photographic group for around 5 years now who specialise in promoting and marketing professional photographers who specialise in
studio photography covering family portraits, baby photography, makeovers and more. The group is made up of over 100 studios nationwide and is dedicated to raising the quality of professional photography ensuring its members deliver nothing but the best to its customers. I entered 10 images, 4 of which were shortlisted to win. With only two categories, one for makeover and boudoir photography and one for portraits, the competition was very tough with over 500 entries to choose from. The SWPP (Society of Wedding and Portrait Phototgraphers) judged the competition, who I have done many talks and seminars for over the years at their amazing annual photographic convention in London.

I hope to have a few quotes from Charlie and the judges to pass on soon - so watch this space!
