In March 2019 my panel of 10 images was recommended for approval for the award of the Licentiate of the Royal Photographic Society (LRPS).
I attended my Assessment Day at the new RPS headquarters in Bristol, and it was a surreal experience watching the 5-member panel minutely examine my submission, over which I had sweated blood, and had gratefully received wonderful advice from several senior members of Cambridge Camera Club.
Fortunately the assessors’ comments were complimentary, and I have been asked to return the mounted prints to the RPS for them to use as an example in some forthcoming Advisory Days.
A great relief, and also a realisation of how much my photography has improved over the period I have been working for this.
The prints are assessed both individually and as a whole panel, so in reality there are 11 images rather than just 10 - there has to be a coherent arrangement of images within the panel, and the first image below shows the overall arrangement.
The aim is to demonstrate a range of photographic skills, and both craft and aesthetics are assessed.
I had the images printed at theprintspace.com in Hoxton, London and they were mounted in custom-cut mounts from Cadremont: both businesses I recommend thoroughly.
