Whoop! Yeah baby! I won a small competition in National Geographic Traveller UK magazine and I’m thrilled to bits to have my photo featured in the June 2017 issue of the mag. The magazine holds a monthly competition called “Your Pictures” with a different destination theme each month – go check it out HERE and try your chances.
The theme I won was “Spain”. I entered very last minute with a shot I took last year on a trip to Seville where I held a street photography workshop. On the last day I stalked some flamenco dancers performing in the street drumming up business for their evening show. I sat on the floor and started shooting. It was such a buzz. The rhythm of the dance, the singing and guitar… and how close I was to the action!
The shot is not cropped and was shot on my old camera, a Canon 60D with a 50mm lens.
Needless to say I am super happy about winning and seeing the photo in print. I also won a prize of a Manfrotto rucksack but seeing my work in the magazine was the real prize!
