News - SALONS

Salon's are exhibitions affilaited to FIAP. From Wikipedia: FIAP is the Fédération Internationale de l’Art Photographique, (Eng. The International Federation of Photographic Art), and is an international organization of national associations of photography. More than 85 national associations are members, comprising nearly one million individual photographers.

FIAP was founded by M. Van de Wijer of Belgium in 1946. The first members were the photographic associations from Belgium, the Netherlands, Italy, Portugal and Switzerland. In 1947, Denmark, Finland and Hungary joined. The first FIAP congress took place in Bern, Switzerland in 1950, at which time additional national association members included Austria, Brazil, Cuba, Spain, Finland, France, Ireland, Luxembourg, Sweden, and Yugoslavia. FIAP Biennials are currently held every 2 years, in different countries, during odd numbered years for black and white and nature photography, and even numbered years for color photography.

Today I received wonderful news from 1st Circular Exhibition of Photography
"TWO COUNTRY CIRCUIT 2016".

I received 31 acceptances (51%)which included 3 Honourable Mentions.

The HM's were all for Monochrome images which have been captured recently in studio shoots that I have done here in Ireland.

"In my dreams" - a shoot with the wonderful lady Fredau Wallace is the most recent image and this is the 2nd time this has achieved an HM in an international salon. This image also came 2nd in Advanced section of the last competition in Malahide Camera Club. I'm truly delighted with the success of this image.

"From Russia with love" was a studio shoot with Jessica. The hat was a prop in the studio and was one of the last images taken in studio on this day. Hasn't been too successful in international competition yet today it wins an HM - I'll gladly take that.

Finally, an image from a shoot with the super lady Zoi Morgan. "The Veil" was taken in a studio shoot in Belfast during a Fine Art nude shoot, strategically place Zoi on the table with the veil. This is the 2nd time this image has won an HM recently.

Thanks to all the models and the judges.
