I have just been announced as a winner in the 18th Julia Margaret Cameron awards. This is hugely exciting and I am very grateful to the judging panel.
The JMC awards, an international photography competition for women photographers, take their name from one of the most important and innovative photographers of the 19th century Julia Margaret Cameron recognising her pioneering contribution to photography.
Big shout out to the incredible team of creatives who worked on this fashion story with me, freely giving of their time and talent :
Talent : Kate Orr & family
Art director : Jo Bell
Fashion stylist : Sophie Kenningham @ Frank Agency
Makeup & Hair artist : Dina Catchpole @ Frank Agency
Photography Assistant : Julie Stewart
Thanks also to Victoria Gaiger, the founder & Creative Director at RakesProgress magazine, for featuring this work in her award-winning publication.
With the recent demise of the ‘traditional’ glossy magazine, I am grateful for independent publications like RakesProgress, and photography awards such as the JMC, as important spaces for photographers and other creatives to showcase personal projects.
Many thanks again for taking the time to look and read.
