Commended by Master Photographers Ryan & Rocco
Ryan Schembri and Rocco Ancora are two of the best photographers in the world. Ryan is a triple master at the worlds most respected convention (WPPI) and Rocco is international ambassador as well as being considered a legend for his standard of work and excellence in photography. It was at their workshop in london that i received incredible comments and appraise towards my images. Ryan went on to say that day " i cant wait to see where you are in five years from now"........."this is the type of photography we are lacking these days and its refreshing to see someone so young with great talent and a strong passion".
Rocco is widely known for his immense experience in various conventions and competitions. It was here that these both advised i take my work forward for the largest international convention - which i did and ended up winning with all my submissions. I was also very lucky to be one of two people to have their work edited and worked on live by Rocco Ancora which was a massive complement itself.
