From A to E . . the complete portfolio

Since the beginning of 2008, having rekindled my passion for competitive photography, my ambition was to reach the standard required to gain an EFIAP distinction.

For those of you who are reading this an EFIAP is the second distinction awarded by the International Federation for Photographic Art for “Excellence”, their first distinction being an A (Artist), which I gained in March, 2010.

About admin

John’s involvement with photography has lasted for more than a quarter of a century, although schooled in the use of film John embraced the digital age very early on. He describes himself as a discerning photographer who sees digital imaging as a tool rather than a box of tricks, a photographer whose images are linked by a natural instinct for subject arrangement and attention to detail. His approach to photography is spontaneous – seeking to recapture for the viewer the same mood and atmosphere that drew him to the subject in the first place.
