Our portrait photography is winning many awards!
In the past few days, we have received some amazing news. Magi and I have received not one but six individual nominations to become the ‘Photographer of the Year 2016’ at The Newborn Photography Show in Coventry, which is taking place 16th of May next week!
And not only that, but Magi received a Gold Award in the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers monthly competition!
Plus those two images of the gorgeous Claudia were selected and chosen to be featured in Inspire Digital or Not Fine Art Photography Magazine, as profile photo of the day and in the Art Photographize magazine which has got over 1,500,000 followers – you can see it here !
Our portrait photography is really getting noticed! What a brilliant couple of weeks we have had!
The Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographer’s Awards
Both of us are registered members of the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers (SWPP) – the UK association for professional photographers.
Every month the SWPP run their photography competitions. Photographers, like us, from across the UK and Europe enter the work that they feel is exceptional and maybe worthy of an award grading.
We have won SWPP Awards in the past for our portrait photography (and you can view some of those awards here). But the awards, particularly the Gold awards, are very hard to come by.
Hundreds of photographers enter the awards every month and a limited number of awards are given out, so competition is tough. There are two levels of grading; Highly Commended and Gold which is considered the very best of the best.
So, naturally, we were thrilled when Magi won the Gold Award in the Pictorial & Fine Art category for this beautiful mother and baby portrait featuring the beautiful Karolyte & Emilis. Isn’t is adorable!
The Newborn Photography Show
The ‘Photographer of the Year 2016’ award nominations are also very exciting for us! The Newborn Photography Show will be held in Coventry on the 15th and 16th May, and the show is Europe’s original and biggest photography show for Newborn, Child and Maternity photographers.
We’ll be there with our fingers and toes crossed, hoping for a win!
The five categories that we have been nominated in are:
- Maternity – Magi
- Digital art – Magi
- Child studio – both Paulina and Magi
- Child Outdoor – Paulina
- Family – Paulina
