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:
Fine-Art Photographer Named ‘Photographer of the Year’ at Professional Photography Awards 2013
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.
The celebration at Hartwell House highlighted the BIPP South East Regional Awards, the Professional Photography Awards, and showcased the exceptional images seen throughout the year in BIPP photographic qualifications. The event culminated in the presentation of the BIPP Photographer of the Year 2013 and the Peter Grugeon Best Fellowship Award 2013.
BIPP President Roy Meiklejon said ‘It is an honour to acknowledge the achievements, pure skill and dedication of professional photographers. Those who have received awards produced some beautiful and original images which truly stood out from the crowd and encompassed what being a professional photographer is really about.’
A local solo exhibition of my work has just started here in Suffolk, England, at Sudbury’s “The Secret Garden” restaurant and will be on until the end of January 2012.
The show has 16 Open Edition prints, all available to purchase, covering a wide range of subjects, including the award-winning black & white Pink Tulip Study IV floral piece, a print of Portrait of an Elephant II from the Behind The Eyes series and many more images.
Directions to “The Secret Garden”, plus details of their daily and evening menus, are on their website at: http://www.tsg.uk.net/index.htm Their opening hours are: Monday to Saturday 9am-5pm, plus 7pm-9.30pm on Friday and Saturday.
They do great coffee and French cuisine. Well worth a visit if you’re in the Sudbury area!

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..!
