One of the hi-lights of the photographic industry calendar is the annual PTO – Photographic Training Overseas Event organised by George Dawber and his team. A week of intense seminars and practical training carried out by leading wedding and portrait photographers, all camped out in a swanky hotel somewhere hot at the end of January. This year the event was in Egypt, what a crazy time to be there, it all added to the excitement. The PTO photographic competition is one of the most prestigious in the industry, with top photographers competing to win the awards. So as you can imagine I was very excited and pleased to find out I won PTO Wedding Photographer of the year 2011. Below is a picture of me collecting my trophy and certificate in Egypt.
