I am very excited and proud to announce my success in gaining a Licentiate distinction of the Royal Photographic Society.

The distinction is a recognised measure of achievement around the world, assessed on creativity, skill, technical ability and the understanding and execution of a variety of techniques.

Needless to say, after a nerve-wracking build up to the assessment, I am honoured and delighted to have gained the Licentiateship (or ‘L’ as it is often known).
