These are the Photographs I submitted for my RPS Licentiate, of which was successful.
The collection comprises of street and music shots mainly taken in and around London, except for Model Mayhem, take on the streets of New York City.
Im now Licentiate of the Royal Photographic Society after submitting my work, they liked it, which is kind of cool, I think anyway.
Tin Pan Alley in Central London, which is due to be “Redeveloped” others would call it demolished to make way for cross rail
Last night I found it quite appalling how we treat our Musicians in this country for the second time in a row, patrons talked loudly over the artists on stage, if you want to go out to just talk go to the pub. In the states people respect their artists, one artist on stage started saying anything she wanted no one took the blindest bit of notice I went up and spoke to her afterwards and she was used to it over here.
Last time one artist yelled shut up at these two women shouting loudly next to the stage, several of us joined in and they moved. it’s not rite!
Trouble is though it’s the same with any art form, people just think it’s theirs just to take, it’s like photography, respect for the craft and skill has all but completely dissipated, my mentor summed it up.
” Lots of people take great shots, but they have no idea why or how, when they true to recreate it they don’t understand why they can not do it “
