My photography in The Times yesterday

My Burma portrait won this weeks competition and so got printed on Page 3 of The Travel section in The Times yesterday.  Pretty big too.  Looks great.  Quite chuffed – my first photo in a big National publication.  The Times photo editor added this…

Lou Siroy, Travel Picture Editor "A portrait like this is difficult to pull off as its success depends on a balance of confidence between the sitter and photographer — and the rapport between both is evident here. The girl’s candid face stopped us in our tracks. The tight crop makes it intimate, yet the colours give it a keen flavour of the country. The photographer has meticulously pre-visualised his image and the subject is fully aware of being exposed".
