Ohh, this was a surprise and I feel thrilled. My Gangster Life composite image made it in the top selection at the SWPP convention 2017, @thesocieties. I can’t describe how I feel…What does the composite image mean ? Compositing is the combining of visual elements from separate sources into single images, often to create the illusion that all those elements are parts of the same scene
A big thank to Robbie Hunte who was a brilliant model. He has just started in the modelling industry when we did our session and since my images he is flying high. Good luck man and don’t forget me when you work for big fish :D
Also, need to thank to my friends and family, helping me through the process.
GANGSTERLIFE got framed and displayed at ground floor. Looks good, right ?
Yes, I received a medal. Entered the 20×16″ Competition – merited images will be displayed for 15,000 visitors to view in the Convention Tradeshow Area.
What does it mean ? It means the five judges of the SWPP critique and score the image. The GANGSTERLIFE received around 90 points. Unfortunately I could not attend on the judges day…But I met Rod Jackson who used to be a judge and he told me some tiny details of what changes should have made…Insane details but good to keep in mind. Like the milk drop seems too planed, maybe 2 – 3 drops would have made a better image. Do you agree ?
I got lovely feedback of random people and some of them even laughed at it what was my main idea, make the people laugh. I achieved what I wanted trough my art.
I offer an extraordinary portrait photography session for everyone, families, couples, business owners, basically everyone. If you have an idea get in touch and I will make it happen.

I would not say that I wasn’t over the moon when I received an email from SWPP featuring my image “GANGSTERLIFE” 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 GANGSTERLIFE 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.
