As I am constantly trying to push myself to improve and enhance my skills, I am regularly taking part in the 'Image of the Month' competition held by the Guild of Photographers. It provides me with feedback by renowned experts of the photography industry. This way, I learn and push myself to try out new skills or to improve on old ones. But also, and that is very important to me, it assures me that I am giving a good quality service to my customers. I want the people, who invest in me for having their portrait or newborn or wedding images taken, to be very happy with the results and to feel that this commitment was worth it.
Of course I don't always get the results I am hoping for, and while in some months I am over the moon, in others' I am a bit deflated. It is difficult not be disappointed once you have received a Gold and a Silver award :-) But, that keeps me going!! And I am proud to win Bronze awards on a regular basis!!!
So, here are my awards for January.
