Three Highly Commended Awards in the Monochrome Photography Awards 2017

It is a pleasure to let you know that in the Monochrome Photography Awards 2017 out of five participating images I received three Highly Commended Awards. Photographers from 87 countries – in all 8,942 images – entered the this year’s competition.

Both leopard images are taken in Maasai Mara, Kenya, in 2017 from Oltepesi Tented Safari Camp’s specially modified and low-angled safari vehicle for wildlife photography. Thanks to John Siololo and Johnmark Kiss-may for great guiding.

The puffin image is taken on Hornøya in Finnmark, Norway, together with Stjørdal Foto and Smøla Naturopplevelser. Thanks for a great trip to you as well!

I especially appriciate this recognition because this contest is dedicated to the advancement of the classic art-form of black and white photography which has been one of my favorite subjects since I started my photography career back in the glory days of the 1980s… The three images were all awarded with Honorable Mention in the Professional Wildlife Category.
