I need your vote! I have been shortlisted for the prestigious British Photography Awards in two categories – “Documentary” and “Commercial Product”, with the second round of judging being based on a public vote combined with a judging panel.
I would be grateful if you could place your vote for both of my pictures. All it requires is a click on the link below and then a click on the vote button and you’re done!
The BPA run an open, responsible competition aimed at celebrating photographic talent from all British and British-based photographers. They work with a range of UK charities to operate a non-profit competition cashflow and they keep this completely ring-fenced from the rest of the business finance. This is integral to their model. Together they aim to use the massive power of photography to do real good in the world.
My pictures are in support of “Surfers Against Sewage” and “Doctors without Borders”.
Thanks and please share to as many people as possible.
The Sunday Times ran a feature on Project Natick at the weekend, with my photography.
Project Natick is Microsoft’s research into the feasibility of an underwater datacentre
A sealed vessel on the ocean floor does not have any of the issues that the equivalent land datacenter does, with corrosion from oxygen and humidity, temperature fluctuations, and bumps plus jostles from technicians who monitor and replace broken components.
Project Natick also supports Microsoft’s sustainability goals with the vessel in Orkney consuming no water for cooling and being powered by renewable energy sources.
Photobanks was assigned to photograph, film and drone the retrieval of the underwater vessel.
