Licenciate of the Royal Photographic Society

Article text
I am really proud to be able to announce that I have been recommended for the Licentiate of the Royal Photographic Society (LRPS) following an Assessment Day in Bath on Tuesday 7 November 2017.

Royal Photographic Society (RPS) distinctions set recognised standards of photographic achievement throughout the world and are a demanding and much sought-after accreditation ... so, naturally, I am pretty pleased to have achieved the Licentiate.

I had to submit a panel of 10 printed images which the judges felt demonstrated the required levels of technical and creative skills and displayed variety of subject and approach. I've attached the panel so you can see which photos I submitted.

I printed the photographs professionally on exhibition quality paper. The majority of prints were 12 x 8 (30cm x 20xm) but the four corner images were 10 x 8 (25cm x 20cm). All prints were mounted with 20 x 16 (51¾cm x 41cm) single mount 'snow white' colour card.

I wanted my panel to reflect my passion for nature and wildlife photography, but I also wanted it to illustrate my creativity so I included examples of my high-speed work (bursting bubble and paint dancing) as well as some images taken with a slower shutter speed (light trails and metallic sparks). In response to feedback received at an earlier advisory day in the autumn, I selected the wildlife shots to demonstrate a range of skills and different ighting techniques and I chose the two landscapes on the basis of composition, storytelling and atmosphere.

The process was pretty tough and took up quite a lot of time and effort over the past year and so I'd really like to thank everyone who offered advice and encouragement and supported my photography along the way.
