Photography Highlights 2011

01st January 2012
2011 has been another very successful year. International salons were my main focus, picking up 72 international awards this year. That’s a total of 88 international awards for 2010 and 2011. Included are 5 FIAP Gold Medals and 8 PSA Gold Medals.

Its great to see one of your images in an exhibition catalogue. Back in May one of my images made the cover of the ‘Ecological Truth’ exhibition catalogue in Serbia. I was delighted to see 9 of my images featured in the German Circuit catalogue in October including a full page and a double page spread. Germany was the most acceptances I had in a competition this year. There were 6 separate judgings. I received the overall ‘Chairmans award’ for 99 acceptances.

So what are the plans for 2012? There a lot of places in Ireland I want to visit with a camera. I will have to plan these trips carefully to maximise my chances of getting some good images. For the ‘uninitiated’ this means early mornings and late evenings taking into account weather forecasts and tide times.

In the meantime, I am looking forward to doing presentations of my work to some camera clubs over the next 2 weeks.

All the Best for 2012.
