Very exciting night last night as we joined The Master Photographers Association for another online awards judged by this years president Panikos Hajistilly (who is an amazing photographer). There were some beautiful entries from photographers all over the midlands. Some of the open category entries were fantastic! The dog and equine photography categories had some really strong images in.
This year I entered 13 images into the regionals, I did enter some slightly different ones to my normal style. The most different being my shot of the grey Spanish stallion Vendaval and a cute image of Shaka the chihuahua. So I was unsure how I was going to do and what the feedback was going to be.
Totally thrilled to say that I won the 2021 Midlands Equine Photographer of the Year!! The winning shot was the stunning image of Marley a super coloured show cob. I loved this shot from the moment I took it! He’s just so handsome!
I was also lucky enough to have 2 finalist images in the pet category with Candy on the pier in the Lake District. Along with Cherry and Candy on a log stack. As well as 2 finalists in the equine category with Kajika the spotted stallion and Milo the adorable highland pony!
In total it was an amazing night with 1 winner, 4 finalists and 7 merits!!
