Doncaster Photographer creates the perfect Portrait to take Top Prize in National AwardsDecember 04, 2019Doncaster photographer picks up top prize for timeless portrait.
Photographer Gary MacDonald of Revu Photography has picked up a top award in a prestigious industry competition for his portrait photography skills.
Gary, who owns a photography business in C-View Centre, Church View, won in the Little Miss portrait category at the Xperience group awards ceremony recently.
Gary is one of 13 overall winners in this year’s annual Xperience Awards, from more than 9000 entries.
Angelika Heyes, the parent of his subject, of a young ballerina has won a beautiful wall portrait of their image worth more than £500 which has come as a pleasant surprise given that they recently lost their car to the floods.
Gary said he was 'delighted' to have won. “It’s a fantastic achievement to have picked up the overall winner for the Little Miss category and two other consumer awards for the Teen and Dance Categories as well. The portrait of Isabelle is a beautiful image of a little dancer dreaming of her future.”
Xperience chief trainer Mark Cleghorn, developed the awards to challenge members of The Xperience Group to ‘step outside their comfort zones and get even more creative every day."
The group is made up of more than 100 photographic studios from across the UK and Ireland.
Mr Cleghorn said: “In a world now dominated by photography, thanks to the smart phone and all its technology, we make sure we push our professional photographers and their boundaries every day. Our secret is to inspire our clients, by creating images that they cannot take themselves. This is achieved using our mastery of light and our imagination, to give them unique wall art for their homes.
“Once again, I was blown away by the quality of entries this year from the Xperience photographers, and Gary’s winning portrait was unanimous with the judging panel. The portrait is emotional and timeless in subject, lighting and styling."
All the winners will now have their work displayed on promotional material at trade shows and events across the UK as well as through our social media channels.
