The Ashwell Show

Bank holiday Monday was spent at the fun filled Ashwell Show in North Hertfordshire. It was a very English day out complete with drizzle and bunting. We watched dog shows, sheep dog demonstrations, chainsaw carvings and stunt clowns. The show also has classic cars on display, birds of prey and was filled with craft stalls, a funfair and burger vans.  It was the perfect end to a perfect bank holiday weekend.

Taylor Wessing Portrait Prize

This year I found the courage to enter one of my portraits for scrutiny by the judges of the Taylor Wessing Portrait Prize, with the winning shots to be exhibited at the National Portrait Gallery London.
And this week they announced the results to all those who entered. I received my email and was very proud indeed to find out that out of the 5,400 submissions I made in through to the second round of judging and down to the last 300, from which the final 60 images to be exhibited were chosen.
