" Joining Kevin’s mentoring programme has undoubtedly been the best decision of my photographic career and I cannot thank him enough for all he has helped me to achieve in such a short period of time.
I first met Kevin in March 2014 when I attended my first portfolio review at the BIPP stand during the National Photography Show. He spent time reviewing my body of work and encouraged me to become a member of BIPP that day after some really positive feedback. I immediately jumped at the chance to enrol on Kevin’s mentoring programme as I find his photography so inspiring and his talent and experience is second to none. I had no idea at this stage what a turning point this would be for my photography.
For the next three months, Kevin and I worked together on my panel for Licentiateship with BIPP. During this time, he critiqued all of my work and provided invaluable and honest advice and direction that helped me grow in confidence and enabled me to more clearly define my individual style.
On the 10th July 2014, I submitted my wildlife panel to the assessors at BIPP. To my sheer delight, I was not only awarded Licentiate, but also upgraded to Associate.
In November 2014 I received recognition at the BIPP South East Regional Awards by receiving two awards in the ‘Science and Nature’ category, and two in the ‘Fine Art’ category.
In February 2015 I was honoured to receive highly commended for the prestigious Peter Grugeon Award for Best Associate.
Kevin takes a great deal of time and effort to get to know you as a photographer; your style, vision, inspiration and goals, and provides bespoke and personal training that is tailored to every individual. His relaxed and positive attitude is contagious and he has inspired me to continually strive to improve my skills. I am eternally grateful for his unwavering support and encouragement, especially during those inevitably moments of self-doubt and I can’t wait to continue my journey with him on to Fellowship and beyond.
