Every year the BIPP and the MPA (2 professional bodies for photographers) in the North West hold a highly competitive awards. This year there were more than 600 entries in total, and so I was really pleased to discover that out of a really strong field I have won 3 awards. The awards are Silver in Fashion, Gold in Fashion and Gold in Studio Portraiture. With the awards comes the title North West Fashion Photographer of the Year 2009 and North West Studio Portrait Photographer of the Year 2009.

Gold, Studio Portraiture
I also won Merit awards in Fashion, Studio Portrait and Environmental Portrait. This fabulous recognition from the judges comes on top of last year's Gold Award for Environmental Portrait Photographer of the year along with 7 merits.
