Bolehill Quarry - Peak District Photography BWPA Award Winner 2017

I’m delighted to be able to announce that my image ‘A Magical Morning’ was awarded 1st place in the ‘Wild Woods’ category of the prestigious British Wildlife Photography Awards. Winning me a place in the book, travelling exhibition and a photography holiday! 

I actually found out about the award in late July when I received a phone call from awards founder Maggie Gowan whilst out at a music event. Being in a loud venue I couldn’t quite tell if I had heard the news correctly and it didn’t really sink in until a week or so later! In November I went down to accept my award at the Mall Galleries in London’s iconic Trafalgar square, before heading off for a week to the Isle of Skye. As I’m writing this just after New Year it’s definitely a while ago now, so please do excuse the very late blog post!

I also would like to congratulate the rest of this years commended and award winning photographs in this fantastic competition. The standard of images is truly incredible and it really motivates me to keep improving and progressing with my own work.

You can see more of this years winners and highly commended entries on the BWPA website, the Guardian and the Telegraph.
