Highlights of 2022

  • By Jonathan Banks

In 2022 I posted 108 articles through my website and social media feeds. These ranged from being about the awards that I received, to exhibitions and festivals that my work featured in, publications in magazines and books, celebrations of awards that my clients had won or their achievements, work that I was involved with and new photography that I had produced.

I believe it’s important to maintain your passion by challenging yourself to work on “personal projects”, enter competitions and showcase your work in exhibitions.

In 2022 my photography was

Awarded, being a winner in the 15th Annual “International Color Awards” with 3 honourable mention & 4 nominations; receiving an honourable mention in the Whalebone Magazine Photo Contest; and highly commended in The International Portrait Photographer of the Year Awards, 2022 in four categories,

The Queen’s Green Canopy

  • By Jonathan Banks

Earlier this year I photographed the “Tree of Trees” sculpture for the Queen’s Jubilee celebration. Designed by Heatherwick Studio, the “Tree of Trees” is one part of a national community campaign to plant more trees and inspire the next generation of tree planters, led by the Queen’s Green Canopy.

Last Friday I was asked by The Queen’s Green Canopy to capture the planting of a tiny forest in Enfield. The local community and council braved the cold conditions to join the Queen’s Green Canopy and Earthwatch Europe to plant 600 trees at Alma Road Recreation Ground.

The Queen’s Green Canopy is proud to be creating a living legacy with over a million trees planted in Her Majesty’s name across the nation.

The Queen’s Green Canopy is an inclusive national initiative, meaning that everyone from across the United Kingdom can get involved. Whether you’re an individual hoping to plant a single sapling in your garden, a scout group planting a large tree or a City Council intending to plant a whole avenue of trees to honour The Queen, the below pages will provide the information you need to plan and deliver your project.

https://queensgreencanopy.org/get-involved/

The Queen’s Green Canopy is a not-for-profit initiative with the aim to raise funds that will go towards planting trees and creating green spaces in deprived urban areas and schools across the United Kingdom.

With your support, we can plant trees across the nation to benefit our natural wildlife, provide cleaner air, slow the impact of climate change and improve general health and wellbeing.

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

Front Page of Architecture Magazine

  • By Jonathan Banks

My photography of the award winning First Light Pavilion at Jodrell Bank currently features on the front cover of, and inside, the December/January 2023 issue of “Architecture Magazine”.

The First Light Pavilion was designed to tell the inspirational stories of Jodrell Bank’s world-leading contribution to science, heritage and culture.

The architecturally remarkable building was designed by Hassell Studios and engineered by Atelier One with the executive architects of JM Architect’s overlooking the entire project, Kier Construction building the large concrete dome and Armourcoat providing an insulated render that optimises the thermal performance of the building.

I was commissioned to photograph the new First Light Pavilion, to capture its stunning architecture and clever design within its location of the Jodrell Bank Observatory centre.

Architecture Magazine is Britain’s leading magazine for architectural products, technology, and trends. This editions has a wealth of industry talent including Freehaus, Fletcher Priest Architects, ARUP, DGN Studio, and HWKN Architecture.
