SM Silver Medal

This week I entered a few photographs into the Swedish Championships for Portrait Photography (SM Porträttfotografi). It was a little stressful at the last minute printing my FineArt prints, and mounting them, packing them to be posted. They had to be mounted 40x50cm prints with only a 3mm tolerance and arrive without damage. hmm… ok. So that all went well in the end if at the last minute. Then off to Särö I went for this years Svenska FotoGrupps annual meeting and seminar days. The first evening started out with listing the 3 judges comments on many of this years entries. The judges were from Swedish, Denmark and Norway, They are all truly brilliant photographers with many years experience and really and inspiration. It was a very rich evening and fun too since 2 of my 5 portraits went through to the ‘final’ which would then go ahead behind closed doors. I had a great time meeting so many other lovely portrait photographers. We could indulge in talking photography and business for essentially 3 whole days! On the last night it was the conference dinner and the  results were announced. I didn’t have much hope but of course a little excitement was there in my belly….and then they called my name for the Silver medal in Children s portraits! OMG! I went up with shaky hands, cried out, “fy” and accepted my medal. I’ve been running my business for a few years now but this year took the step, as you’ve all read to focus wholly on photography and opened my studio in Tullinge. It may only be an SM Silver medal (i didn’t win the total competition over all 6 categories or anything) but it’s  a great confirmation that following my heart was the right thing to do, and believing in myself wasn’t completely unfounded. So I wont be translating this text to Swedish this time since I think it’s better to express these feelings in my language… I hope my Swedish readers can forgive me…

So, the Silver medal photograph…
