It’s been a memorable week. I did a major two-day photo shoot for image libraries (more on this in the next blog) in the same week a national photo magazine chose to run a 7-page feature on me. It feels like I’ve truly arrived as a photographer. It all started with a single photo, albeit one of some significance: a shot of legendary portrait photographer Brian Griffin, taken for Derbyshire Life when he previewed his exhibition in Derby. The next thing I know, Brian asks me if he can use my photo for a Royal Photographic Society awards ceremony when he was due to receive a Centenary Medal, one of the highest honours in world photography (previous recipients have included Don McCullin and Annie Leibowitz). It was an honour for me, too, to know that my image would be screened at such a ceremony and published in the RPS Journal. The Editor of the Journal also happens to edit F2 Freelance Photographer magazine and that’s where I appear – in this month’s issue. I was knocked out to see that they ended up devoting 7 pages to me. I am – according to the magazine – ‘truly a general practitioner in the classical sense of the term’.
