It was a special moment having my work approved and being enrolled as Licentiate of the Royal Photographic Society on the 21st March 2019.
This Falmouth based photographer was over the moon.
10 images representing a wide scope of technique and skill were needed for this assessment.
It is an unusual choice but I had only portraits in my panel. Many people choose different subject types to reflect the variety of skills needed. I developed a panel that would reflect my passion for capturing people as well as my skills.
Developing the images of a quality expected of a Licentiate of the Royal Photographic society is one that shows my commitment to photography. It is an honour to receive this recognition.

The enrolment as Licentiate gives the letters LRPS. It is wonderful to be alongside some superb photographers who have this distinction too.
