BIPP Professional Photography Awards 2013

December 10, 2013

BIPP Photographer of the Year 2013

Last Wednesday, 4th December, I attended the British Institute of Professional Photography “Professional Photographic Awards 2013” at Hartwell House, near Aylesbury, UK, and I’m very pleased to announce that I received the Gold Award in Visual Arts and also Photographer of the Year 2013, both for my new series of five images, “Equilibrium”.

I had the great fortune to receive this prestigious award in 2010, but to be awarded this title twice is quite overwhelming!

The BIPP Awards website, which features all of the winners’ work, can be viewed at: www.bipp.com/awards

I am very honoured to receive these awards and my sincere thanks go to the BIPP judges for selecting my work.

From the BIPP Press Release:

Eastern England based photographer, Paul Coghlin FBIPP, has been named ‘Photographer of the Year 2013’ at the BIPP Professional Photography Awards held at Hartwell House in Buckinghamshire, UK, on Wednesday 4 December.

Paul Coghlin FBIPP was named ‘BIPP Photographer of the Year 2013’ for his portfolio of 5 images ‘Equilibrium’ in the Visual Arts category, for which he also received a Gold Award. This is the second time Paul has won this prestigious title, having previously held ‘BIPP Photographer of the Year 2010’.

The BIPP Professional Photography Awards are open to professional photographers who are members of the BIPP, the leading qualifying body of the photographic profession, and celebrate the very best work from the UK and internationally.

New work – coming soon…

March 15, 2012

It’s been a busy few months!  I’ve been working on many new images, including a new botanical series, plus have been going back to one of the oldest printing processes in photography – the platinum print – in a collaboration with one of the UK’s foremost practitioners of this technique.  More on this next time.

For the moment, here’s an example of the new work, with many more to follow soon…


New image – “Martello I”

July 15, 2011

Taken yesterday on the Suffolk coast, here in eastern England, in strong winds and driving rain.  Only 12 degrees C.  October in July!  Not the best conditions and especially tricky trying to click the stopwatch and the cable release simultaneously and also hold a blowing-around, turning-inside-out umbrella.  I managed to get soaked and my leggings muddy, but at least the gear stayed pretty dry.  I can always put the waterproofed clothing in the washing machine.  Can’t do that with a Nikon..!

New images and stormy weather

April 27, 2011

Headed off to the coast again yesterday, here in East Anglia, UK, and what started off as fairly breezy conditions at home turned into near gale-force stormy weather by the time we reached the sea.  So setting-up the camera gear and heavy tripod became quite a challenge, including trying to avoid getting all the cases and lenses (and us) sand-blasted.  Certainly was bracing!

A couple of new images have been produced from our trip, attached below, which are also on my website and on the Art Limited website.
