I submitted to the Dear Photographer showcase gallery weeks ago now and had in all honesty forgotten about it when today up popped a notification from Adri De La Cruz
"Honorable Mentions, this was such a hard decision to make and I am so glad I had 10 other judges weighin in. I hope you enjoy this list." [sic]
My chosen image was this one of Simon March in his gorgeous paint shop in Lewes, East Sussex which has certainly received a lot of positive feedback and gained me lots of exposure and feelings of achievement, not least it being my first ever Vogue publication! It was one of my images taken as part of my Hello Yellow charity portrait project too so I'm delighted it's done so well! It's a personal favourite of mine too, all the colourful jars of pigment, love!
The showcase gallery will feature 10 final images printed on show at the Elevate & Grow Workshop in Austin, Texas in September. I wish I could see them in person as the list of honourable mentions includes so many utterly gorgeous images!
