Rangefinder 30 Rising Stars Winner

Well, after the longest few weeks keeping it a secret, I'm now finally allowed to tell the world I've been named one of Rangefinder Magazine's 30 Rising Stars of wedding photography! Rangefinder is a New York based print magazine read by photographers all over the world.It's all a bit surreal to be honest, I never usually enter competitions, but having been nominated by a previous winner (thanks Marianne!) I thought I'd better pull together a few of my favourite photos and send them off. Certainly wasn't expecting to be listed, reading through the previous years winners is pretty mind-blowing, so many of my super talented friends from all over the world!I've never hidden the fact that I fell into wedding photography entirely by accident, so it's nice to have some validation that I've somehow ended up doing something I'm pretty good at! It's very easy as a wedding photographer and creative to be hard on yourself, so this is a great boost at the end of a very busy year.Rangefinder's 30 Rising Stars is unique in being peer nominated and judged by a panel of wedding photography industry experts.Obviously the most important feedback is the thanks I get from the couples who's weddings I get to shoot, but it's really great to be acknowledged by my peers!Without going all Gwyneth-Paltrow-at-the-Oscars, now seems a good time to thank a few people who've supported, encouraged, and guided me. Marianne for nominating me, Jamie, Emma & Pete, Jo Brown, Kristian, Lizzie, Laura and the whole SNAP family, and all the other people who've helped me along the way.
