"I know you are good" Mrs Sue Young who has asked me to cover events at  St Lukes church, Sway, on being informed regarding Romsey Show result

Attended a model shoot, the person organising this, Joana Kruse, offered two places for "assistants" or "work experience". She later posted that this was the best model shoot ever, thanks to the input from myself and the other photographer, (not forgetting the model who looked half frozen toward the end)

Regarding the prize voucher from the Romsey show, the winning image shown below.

Two portfolios have been submitted as part of C&G external assessment. 

Completed apart from accompanying statement of intent needs amending

I have been told by First Point that I have told the story of the Pedal Car race well, my photography has shown considerable improvement since I first started the course, and as it stands would pass. However, we have decided to defer submission on the basis of being able to attend further shoots and show more camera technique such as panning and composition. - update Sept 2017 - panel completed.

September 2017, LRPS advice. Of the panel submitted one a definite, and an example of the standard required at this level. One would just pass - a pity that your model stood too close to the wall and created a shadow. One shows evidence of pp (don't try to fix it if it isn't broken) , otherwise LRPS standard, and one where  a bit of background removal recommended.

September 2017, asked by  Colin Denman to take some pictures of the Sway Cango bus for publicity, and commended on the results

September 2017 -"Thank you so much for sending these photos over, we really appreciate you taking these. They are fantastic." Alexa Hobday, secretary Romsey Show
