So this happened last week! I got into the Top 10 of Kuoni's Honeymoon Photographer In Residence competition, from over 500 applicants. Being interviewed by the MD of Kuoni, the Head of Communications of Kuoni, the Editor of Hitched and Sandra Von Reikoff a renown wedding photographer (who has taking wedding photos for Princess Beatrice and other famous people!).
Unfortunately I didn't win, but it's difficult to be disappointed. I've since had a long chat with Sandra, giving me tips and hints to help improve and the encouragement to keep going in whatever I choose.
Her best advice, especially for photographers, is to stand out.... 'Don't be the best, be the only!'
