A couple of months ago I shot some images for a local school's Open Evening advertising. I had an eager bunch of bright eyed year 7 pupils, new to the school (it was their first week!) to act as models in various situations in the Science department. The images had to be bright, interesting and showing the pupils enjoying their time in "lessons".
So today I found out that an image I took last summer on the Isle of Skye has made it all the way through the various rounds of #OPOTY and I have made the book. I'm so thrilled at this achievement, and completely surprised! What was more surprising was discovering that my image was one of 18 featured on the Guardian website......which is crazy!
As an amateur photographer, who can't always find that much time to make images, this is quite a humbling achievement, and I am actually pretty proud of myself. I hope you also like the image that made it's way into the book. It will be hard buying just one copy.....!
Every year I get a chance to shoot in Snowdonia, arguably one of the most beautiful places in the British Isles. It is however always in winter, when visiting relatives in the area - so it's cold!! Last year we went to the Llyn Idwal/Tryfan area on New Year's Eve at sunrise - you can see the result of this little trip in an earlier post.
