RAF Photo Competition 2013


It feels strange that for the first time in over 5 years I was not running the competition but I have to say that my replacement Warrant Officer Gareth Bufton did a truly excellent job. He invited me to the presentations at the RAF Club, London in October and the display was outstanding! The photographic trade within the RAF is very small, only 139 in total, and each year the trade has to fight for its existence. There are a number of Senior Officers that think that anyone can take a photo, but looking at the examples above I think that is totally not true, it takes a professional to take these. I was once told by a very senior officer that it "most be great to do my hobby as a trade", I replied, "Sir I can cook would you like me to cook dinner for you tonight!" My boss looked very mad, however, the senior officer laughed and then shook my hand.
I feel honored to have been the senior photographer and to have worked with truly professional and gifted photographers and it is great to see that the trade ins in "good-hands" for the future years.
