A fine art photographer from Hayfield has won industry recognition after her portfolio was judged joint best at a prestigious event.
Sara Porter, who has been a professional full time photographer for five years, was one of two winners of the “Best Portfolio by a Provisional Member” at the British Institute of Professional Photography (BIPP)/ Towergate Camerasure Fine Art Competition 2013. Judges overseeing the award are directed to look closely at: composition, technical ability, creativity, interpretation and a “wow factor”.
Her work, which is normally given a digital finish, is currently being exhibited at the Leeds City Museum until the 30th June. Sara first took up photography as a hobby at the age on nine and before becoming a full time snapper was a teacher.
Speaking about her triumph she said: “The quality of work produced by my fellow BIPP photographers is so high that to have my work recognised in that way is an achievement I am very proud of”.
“After a fabulous year and having a five month exhibition at Leeds City Museum, this is just the icing on the cake”.
BIPP President, Roy Meiklejon, said of Sarah: ”Her portfolio was of a very high standard, and serves as a testament to the diversity of work produced by members of the BIPP”.
