I am delighted to report that I have been awarded an Associate distinction by the Royal Photographic Society. I am now an ARPS!
My submission was in the travel category, which required me to submit a panel of fifteen photographs on a travel theme. I chose to do mine about Cambridge.
The panel is judged by five experts, who are usually Fellows of the society. They assess the panel based on a statement of intent.
Statement of Intent
My statement of intent was:
Cambridge is an easy city to cover on foot. Most sights are within easy walking distance, and much of the central area is traffic-free. The footpaths and pavements provide the best view of the universities, the river and the Backs. It is also possible to access many of the famous colleges and landmarks, such as Kings College Chapel.
My panel is a meander in and around the colleges of Cambridge, capturing some of the architecture, heritage and atmosphere of this famous seat of learning.

Camera Wrist Strap
I have avoided dropping my camera so many times using a simple inexpensive wrist strap like this one. Cameras and expensive lenses do not bounce!
