Over the moon to receive an email from the Guild of Photographers today to let me know two of my photographs have been shortlisted for ‘Equine Photograph of the year’.
Only 10 shortlisted
I’m super happy the gorgeous thoroughbred Blakerigg and the handsome fell pony Haweswater Firecracker, (my two gold award photographs) made it through.
Unfortunately none of my silvers made it, (last year I was runners up with a silver awarded photograph) so it just goes to show how crazy the competition has been this year in the equine category.
As well as being shortlisted as a finalist in the Guild of Photographer’s Founder’s Cup, it’s all makes for a very exciting online awards evening in February.
I can’t thank these amazing people enough, for giving up their time this year to help me and giving me access to some amazing horses and ponies: Rachel Bastow, Christine Jones, Gilly Chippendale, Katie Chippendale, Kelly and Brian Gale, Carole Holliday, Sarah Atkinson, Debbie Hutchinson – Cartmel, Courtney Savage Gail Smith.
