The Exposure Photography Awards results were posted a few weeks ago, and while I didn’t place I was surprised to get an email this week to say that one of my photos had been included in the private exhibit at the Louvre in the Portraiture collection! I was so stunned. I’d seen the other entrants and thought there was no way I would possibly be included; they seemed so far advanced compared to me, with a definite style that was very different to mine.
The photo they chose to include was this one of my niece, Makayla. It made me even more sad that my MacGyver backdrop has been ruined :(
I received an official letter of recognition, as well as a preview of how the photo will look in the book See | Me are bringing out later this year!
I couldn’t have even contemplated entering something like this without the constant support and encouragement I receive, so thank you so much everyone <3
