Monday night saw the presentation of the North West England Regional Photography awards, with entries from photographers from Cumbria, Lancashire, Cheshire and North Wales, even some from Dumfrieshire! This is the regions most prestigous event and is run by The Master Photographers Association. The judge was triple fellow and the mpa chairman of qualifications, Kevin Wilson.

I was lucky enough to be highly successful, winning a total of 18 awards and the coveted Master Photographer of The Year overall title.  I also came away as the Creative Wedding Photographer of the Year, the Reportage Wedding Photographer of the Year, the Under 5’s Portrait Photographer of the Year and the Pet Photographer of the Year.

I was really pleased that images of mine won 3 of the 4  awards in Reportage Weddings, but then nearly fell off my chair when I realised I had won every one of the 5 awards possible in the Creative wedding category!

A big thank you to all our clients who trusted me to do my own thing and create award winning images like these 🙂

Below are the winning images…
