First of all, I'd like to express my gratitude once again to two incredible people whose continued support and friendship has been an important part of my life and my photography journey: Ruth and Nat Coalson, Gallery PHOTIQ owners. Thank you for seeing my potential and for being such lovely people!


What brought us together was Leamington PhotoFest – a photo competition and exhibition run by their gallery to help local photographers promote their work. I won the Gallery Choice Award in 2021 and the prize – a solo exhibition – was a success and a reminder to keep doing what I love.


This year I had the pleasure to receive an invitation from Nat to be part of the Judging Panel. I’m so delighted and excited to see all the entries, but most importantly, to help another fellow photographer succeed like I did when I entered!


If you are a photographer (professional or amateur), please check more info about Leam PhotoFest23 here and don’t miss the chance to enter this fantastic competition. I can assure you from my own experience that it will open doors for you.


Want to know more about the gallery? Head over to their website for more info about all the services provided by the very experienced and talented artist Nat Coalson.


Thank you!

I've won the 18+ category of a local photo competition themed "Nature in Warwickshire". It was run by Galanos Goes Green which is part of the Royal British Legion Community Hub in Southam.

Thank you so much to my fellow photographer Carl Gallagher who voted for me and everyone from Galanos House who complimented my picture.

The prize giving event was held today at The Community Hub & Café which is a great place to go for nice coffee and food!

I'm so delighted to announce I've received an Honourable Mention in the Tokyo International Foto Awards 2022!

Even though I'm not officially a winner, this is a great personal achievement for me. Being recognised by an International photo competition gives me even more motivation to keep doing what I love. I'm over the moon!

I entered the 'Self-portrait' category with a series of images themed 'Reflections of my own'. You can see my pictures on their website, here.

What a great way to finish 2022! 🥂

09th December 2021

I have won the Gallery Choice Award - Leam PhotoFest 21 and the prize is to have my own exhibition at the Gallery PHOTIQ in Leamington Spa in 2022!

Initially, I found out I had 3 of my photos selected to be displayed at the Gallery which was the first part of the competition. There was an exhibition showing all selected photographs (all very good!) and to me, that was a great achievement anyway!

But winning the Gallery Choice came as a surprise and it could not have been a better time for it - now I know I've got to keep doing what I love and things will happen 😊🤞

When your hard work is recognised by someone who has a great knowledge of art and see your potential, this is for sure something to be proud of 😊

Congratulations to the other winners of different categories and everyone who's been selected, you are all winners! 👏

Thank you so much for this opportunity Nat Coalson, I am very grateful and excited about my exhibition 🥳

Keep an eye on my Instagram/website for updates!

Thank you 😀
