I would not say that I wasn’t over the moon when I received an email from SWPP featuring my image “GANGSTER LIFE” as Judges’ Choice Award. :) I didn’t expect any awards for this picture so I was I bit shocked. My second image of the composite/creative world payed off. EPIC !
What does the image competition mean ? They have photo contest in various categories each month. The Gold award images are put towards the end of the year awards. Around 1000 entries each month, 52 Gold awards won in March. (Gold awards are very hard to get)
So, how did it happen ?
One of my model, Susan suggested me to work with Robbie Hunte who started modelling about 2 moths ago at this time. I looked at his portfolio and I new this guy need some serous images. Soon, he arrived at my studio with a fantastic, 1920’s-1930’s outfit, looking stunning. Firstly, I took images for my Character series
and then we went for the composite photography work. I planed two sets, one is the GANGSTER LIFE and the other one is still in progress. Believe me, it will be awesome (I hope I can manage it…I need to learn and find new Photoshop tricks to achieve my imagination…long practice and failure ahead.)
Keep tuned folks and come back to see the second image probably ready in June.
