I just received some really good news.... I was delighted to find out that I had been awarded a GOLD image for the image below in The Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers. This competition is a worldwide competition so achieving a gold award is a great achievement and something which I am very proud off. Gold awards are deemed images of the highest standard, They are published in Professional Imagemaker Magazine and are also put forward to the annual judging for Portrait Photographer Of The Year 2013.
The image was taken as part of a series of images which involved "see no evil", "speak no evil" and "hear no evil". Special Effect make up was carried out by Sarah Scars who was fantastic in recreating my vision. Modelling was carried out by Thomas who runs I Candy Butlers. Thomas was a great model and allowed my creativity to run free, Thomas was unable to see when the makeup was applied but still allowed us to transport him to the location and chain him to a chair... Big thanks Thomas.
The session was carried out on location in an industrial warehouse, which was perfect in creating the grungy backdrop i was looking for. We have already captured "speak no evil" and will shortly be creating "hear no evil", so please keep an eye on facebook for further updates.
