Finally I had an email from the Royal Photographic Society (RPS) to say that my submission for an Associateship had been approved by the council and that I am now entitled to use the letters ARPS after my name.
I had submitted a panel of dance images that a group of five assessors pored over for what seemed like an age. The images are shown in this blog were taken over a period of 3 years at ballet performances in London and Bristol and also in studio sessions. Unlike those that I featured last time, they are also rans: photos that I gave very serious consideration to including to but which didn’t make the final 15 that I submitted to the RPS. This is by no means a comment on their quality. For a successful panel the individual images have to work together to form a coherent piece of work and some strong images just didn’t fit!
I thought that they were worth showing before this blog moves on in its next few iterations to travel photography, portraiture and urban exploration. As I said in my last blog, I’m hugely grateful to the wonderful dancers and choreographers whose work I photographed and to all those who were involved with studio sessions.
Please keep reading, tell others about my blog and website and please let me have your comments. Happy reading!
