Earlier today one of my images won an award in the “editing” category in Jimmy Cheng’s (Olympus Ambassador and thoroughly nice guy) “See the World” photography competition. I’m really chuffed as it’s the only thing that I’ve ever won in my life. What encourages me greatly is that Jimmy mentions in the Youtube live stream that “editing” in this context is transforming an image, something that is very important to me in my work. The work goes forward along with the other category winners, to the “Photographer of the Year” award to be announced next week. It’s fabulous exposure for my work and I never thought that I was in with a chance.
