December the 15th - It's Ace

Ace was the youngest dog i had the pleasure of photographing.....only a few months old.....i'm amazed i got this (but not really because i always get something!). he seriously could not sit still, apparently me petting him wasn't helping - once i got over his cuteness we were down to business and here is the result......

Dec 6th Dog Of The Day!

Its Gonzo........Now lovely Gonzo is a stable regular round Clissold Park with his owner Mark, the local dog walker. He never fails to make me smile as he's always 50 paces behind the other dogs, rambling along in his own way.

Gomez was very chilled when it came to becoming a canine Santa, he just plonked himself down and allowed the styling to commence. We knew he'd had enough when he spun around and gave me his bottom to photograph!

Portrait Salon

One of my images has been selected for 'Portrait Salon', a modern day 'salon des refuses'.

It is a showcase of 75 unselected entries from the National Portrait Gallery Photographic Prize 2011 (Taylor Wessing).

Personally I am really excited to see the other entries and I think it gives an interesting perspective and insight into the judging of the Taylor Wessing prize, an award which causes much debate every year.

The images will be shown as a projection at The Roxy Bar and Screen in Borough, London tonight and all are welcome! Short notice I know but it's been busy busy busy lately!!

Below is the invite and a quote from Miranda Gavin on the selection process....
“Looking through the rejected entries has been an eye opener - it was a rare chance to see some of the images that are discarded, to ponder the question of portraiture in the 21st century, and to discover some top-notch portraits to boot. The National Portrait Gallery Photographic Portrait Prize 2011 is a prestigious international prize, however, there is a lack of feedback given to entrants and it was surprising to find that there is some confusion as to what constitutes a portrait – many images simply didn’t fit the criteria. Portrait Salon is a new venture and should be viewed as a positive addition to the photo competition arena as all entrants are being given another chance to get their work seen on screen and in print at no extra cost.”
