This photograph is from my successful portfolio submission for the Licentiate of The Royal Photographic Society. I submitted a portfolio of ten photographs for the panel which were taken in a variety of locations both in the UK and abroad, including Thailand and D R Congo. The photograph of the peacock was taken in June 2012 at Scone Palace near Perth and was an opportunistic shot grabbed quickly in the moment. Other photographs in my portfolio were more planned and considered.
The Society’s distinctions are internationally respected and sought-after by professional and amateur photographers. Over 1,000 applications for Licentiateship, Associateship and Fellowship are received each year with around 600 being successful. Submissions are held in different categories and are assessed by a qualified Panel of senior members of The Society. The Society takes great care in maintaining standards and in promoting excellence among photographers.
