We announce our abstract/fineart judge- the multi talented @rosie_hardy #photography #abstract

Rosie Hardy is a conceptual art photographer based in the Peak District. Her surreal self portraiture and creative photo manipulations capture escapism at its prettiest. Hardy has been shooting for a decade, working her way as a school girl trekking through fields – with the cheapest equipment money could buy – (clutching handfuls of props and looking rather out of place) to trekking through fields with slightly more expensive, mud covered equipment, but lots more confidence and excitement.
Her “Big Break” came at age 19 when she was discovered by Maroon 5, and was asked to shoot their album cover, “Hands All Over”. Since then, she has worked with numerous brands such as Microsoft, Pandora and Random House, as well as celebrities and musicians, but she still loves to shoot a decent wedding and just can’t seem to stay away from those fields…
Her work is inspired by emotion and human connection, and the comfort that can be found in art during times of loss and heartache.

We speak to Johnny Kerr our judge in our #architecture #photocontest #photography #London

“Congratulations to the London Photo Festival Architecture Competition winners! There were many exceptional photographers deserving of recognition for their fine work and it was a difficult task to narrow it down to just a few. Kudos to everyone who submitted work; it takes courage and boldness to put yourself out there and I hope that you’ll all continue to do so in the future. Thank you to the London Photo Festival for a great experience. It was an honour and privilege to collaborate with you.”

Thank you for being our judge, Johnny – it was a pleasure to work with you too!

We announce prize pot for this year’s London Photo Festival! #photography #London

Continuing with our year of celebration (this year we will be holding our 10th London Photo Festival), we have introduced a prize fund of £500 to share between the photographers selected by our judge as Best in Show, 1st and 2nd Runners ups.  The winner of the public vote, the f-Factor, will also win photography related prizes!

We believe in giving new and emerging photographers a chance they would rarely get elsewhere: the opportunity to exhibit their work in a relaxed, professional environment.

Unlike other galleries, exhibitions and festivals, we do not judge your work – as long as it is not offensive, we will display it. All you have to do is pay a small fee and you can enter here.

We announce judge for our #architecture #photography #photocontest #London http://bit.ly/2dKRSTq

We are honoured to announce the judge for our current architecture photography competition.  Voted as one of the top 14 of the world’s architecture photographers,  Johnny Kerr is an American fine art photographer based in Arizona who has pursued art in various forms since childhood. His college studies and post-graduate vocation concentrated on graphic design but during his late twenties a desire to change careers brought him back to school to study education. Removed from the commercial sector, and creating art solely for himself once again, Johnny found a new voice in the medium of photography.

Self-taught in the craft of photography, Johnny cites his lifelong study of art, along with his graphic design experience and appreciation for minimalist design as having the largest influences on his vision as a fine art photographer.
Since earning his Masters degree, Johnny makes his living teaching photography and devotes his personal time to his family and personal photography projects.
You can see Johnny’s work here and enter the competition until the 31st January.

Thames Lens 2016 Photography Competition Winners Announced! @TotallyThames #photography #London #photocontest #Thames

Totally  Thames in partnership with the Port of London Authority are proud to announce 2016 Thames Lens Photography Winners, Totally Thames annual photography competition. Now in its 12th year, the competition is open to non‐professional photographers.
Entrants were asked to submit photographs that captured the vibrancy and distinctiveness of the River Thames and were judged by a panel from the Thames Festival Trust and Port of London Authority alongside the London Photo Festival. From over 250 entries received, we can now announce that the 2016 winners are:
 Thames Lens 2016 Winner goes to Cairis Grant‐Hickey for Dare you! taken along the Thames footpath between Woolwich and the Greenwich peninsula.
 Thames Lens 2016 Runner‐up goes to Peter Murrell’s The Tour Bus taken at Tower Bridge.
 Port of London Authority Winner is awarded to John Clare for his Paddles Ahoy! taken at Kew Bridge at this year’s TideFest.
 London Photo Festival Highly Commended goes to Bubble Fun II by Britta Baumann taken along Bankside.
Adrian Evans, Totally Thames Director said “We wanted photographers to reflect on the Thames and its many narratives and visual facets. Thames Lens is a unique opportunity for photographers to convey the vibrancy and ever‐changing character of the River Thames and this year’s 258 entries certainly do that! It was a real challenge to select the winners but we think they all offer unique perspectives on the River Thames.”
Thames Lens is kindly supported by the Port of London Authority, Alistair Gale, Director of Corporate Affairs said “We are pleased to support Totally Thames bringing people back to the river through arts and cultural activities. The submissions to this year’s Thames Lens competition show the incredible beauty and the varied uses of the Thames. From art and architectural delight to the diversity of activities on the river: paddling sports and sailing; moving building materials for a growing capital city and using it to get to work.”
The winning photography can be seen here. The winning prizes include The View from The Shard tickets, Wildlife Photography Course with Iain Green at the WWT London Wetland Centre, Abitoffthemapp Camera Bags, London Photo Festival and subscription to Amateur Photographer Magazine.
