I received two nominations at the 17th Annual Black and White Spider Awards announced at a prestigious Photoshow, streamed, Saturday 26th November 2022. The annual event was attended by industry leaders and the photography community from around the globe honouring the best in Black and White Photography.
Over six thousand entries were received from around the world, with my work receiving nominations in the “Photojournalism” and “Portrait” categories. Both pictures were photographed while on assignment for Microsoft.
The portrait is of Steven Lo, a Consultant Plastic Surgeon at Canniesburn Plastic Surgery Unit in Glasgow. He is pushing the frontier of surgery by investigating the potential for 3D Telemedicine.
I was also nominated in the ‘photojournalism’ category for my photograph of Spencer Fowers removing a server from the Northern Isles datacentre at Global Energy’s Nigg Energy Park facility in the north of Scotland. Project Natick is Microsoft’s research into the feasibility of an underwater datacentre, to determine whether it is logistically, environmentally, and economically practical
