I have some exciting news to share with you all. I have just had the final confirmation through so I am allowed to use the logo and title.
For many photographers, being able to show that that have reached a standard of photography that meets the requirement of The Royal Photographic Society is somehing that we strive for.
As of today, the RPS recognise 3420 people as LRPS and I have just joined their ranks.
If you don't know the process, On Sunday the 21st Septemeber 2014 I submited a panel of 10 photographs to a panel of printed and mounted images. These images were then judged by 5 accredited RPS judges to see if they met the requirement for LRPS.
To be awarded Licentiate of The Society, you need to show variety in approach and technique but not necessarily in subject matter, evidence of creative ability and a high technical standard appropriate to your submission, together with a comprehensive knowledge and ability in your discipline. It is essential that a range of photographic skills are demonstrated within your submission.
I am very pleased to say that the judges felt my panel should be reccomended to the RPS board for the award of LRPS.
Late yesterday, I received the email confirmation that my panel had been ratified by the board of The Royal Photographic Society and that I am now a Licentiate of The Royal Photographic Society
I am obviously chuffed to bits
