Haddenham-based Paul Wilkinson crowned UK Portrait Photographer of the Year at annual Master Photography Awards 2020
Local photographer Paul Wilkinson has won a string of national accolades including the coveted title of UK Portrait Photographer of the Year with a striking portrait of a lady from Buckinghamshire.
The image of Carol, photographed at Paul's studio, scooped the title at the National Master Photography Award's ceremony at the weekend.
It was an awards ceremony like no other due to the restrictions of COVID -19 so it was not possible for a public gathering to take place as originally planned for the prestigious event. However, with the help of online technology, a fantastic professional awards ceremony was hosted with hundreds of members attending online.
Over 2000 entries from working professionals were received from the UK and worldwide and as panel of judges including some of the world's top photographers had the mammoth task of judging the images.
They comments left participants in no doubt that the winners really are at the pinnacle of creative excellence.
Paul achieved 18 Merits, 4 Finalists and 2 National Titles.
When referencing Carol, the judges said that Paul's image captures the true personality of this lady in a wonderfully emotive image. Subtle use of tones and the monochrome treatment ensure that there are no distractions from the true character of the sitter.
Our warmest congratulations to Paul Wilkinson
