Here is my first blog on my site, before I indulge in any projects, news etc for this year I would just like to finish off on what was a fairly successful year for me in 2012. In May 2012 after leaving it way to long I was awarded my Associateship (A.I.P.F.) from the Irish Photographic Federation for my panel of Landscapes. I was awarded with my (L.I.P.F) in 2005. Over the years I have been taking a lot of landscapes photographs and as time went by I was starting to gather quite a few that I felt justified been presented as my panel for this Distinction. And so in May I put forward my panel and was delighted to be given this recognition for this body of work.
In December 2012, I was awarded "Photographer of the Year" with Mountmellick Camera Club. This is the 6th time I have won this award since I joined the club in 1998.
