Back in Early November 2018, I received an email notifying me I had been shortlisted for the British Photography Awards in the Land Animals Category.
A long and anxious wait commenced not expecting to get any further.
To my absolute shock and delight, I received the email below confirming I was through to the Awards evening.
Humbled, excited, and genuinely shocked to have received this email.
On Monday 28th Jan 2019, I attended a fantastic evening at the famous London’s Savoy hotel, rubbing shoulders with some of the UK’s best photographers.
My Category ‘Land Animals’ came up and I was shocked and honored to have my name called out as the winner.
