Photographer Esmé Robinson has won a major photography prize
Bedfordshire based photographer Esmé Robinson has won a top prize in a major international photography award ceremony.
Celebrating the Masters of Photography, the annual Master Photographers Association (MPA) Awards welcomed some of the greatest photography talents in a glittering awards ceremony on Sunday 18th October.
Bringing the photographic industry together, with unprecedented awards, the Master Photography Awards is the most anticipated event in the professional photographic calendar. Judges from across the globe selected a record number of nominees this year, which reflected the high standard of photography entered into the awards this year. The MPA annual awards celebrate the Masters of International Photography.
Esmé won the Wedding Art Fashion Category in the 2015/16 Master Photography Awards. Esmé beat-off stiff competition to scoop her prize, with other leading photographers from across the UK and Overseas all striving for recognition in the awards.
Professional photographers from around the world were joined by representatives from the major photographic companies and trade, with other knowledgeable industry observers keenly attending the Awards ceremony, held at the Hinckley Island Hotel, 18 October 2015.
Esmé has been interested in photography since she was bought her first camera aged 9 years old, and has been photographing local families and weddings now for 10 years. She is currently based in her studio in Stopsley and although she has been featured before for regional achievements, this is the first national award for Esmé in the field of photography.
The Awards, run by the Master Photographers Association (The MPA), is one of the most prestigious within the photographic profession, both in the UK and Overseas. Membership of the Association is restricted to professional photographers who must qualify to the minimum required Licentiateship standard. The organization, a not for profit, exists to promote and maintain standards of photographic excellence within the photographic industry.
Clare Louise, CEO of the MPA comments: "The standard of photography we have seen this year is world class, and a privilege to judge. It was exciting to see new faces coming through and rewarding to see such great talent upholding previous years titles. With entrants both UK and worldwide, our winners really are the masters of their craft. It is an absolute honor to showcase imagery of such high standard and we are really proud to represent some of the best image makers globally.”
