Rocking your way to an ARPS
Earlier this week Peter Wells took a trip to the Royal Photographic Society Headquarters in Bristol. The purpose of the visit was to attend an ARPS Assessment Day. These days are a curious form of torture which have been developed specifically for photographers. The idea is that you present a panel of 15 images linked to a particular theme to a panel of judges – a bit like ‘Strictly’ without nifty footwork and glitter.
Peter had chosen a rock shoot in Wakefield’s Theatre Royal, for the source of the images, which were all taken in one unrepeatable evening. After hours of processing, advice and support from members of WCC as well as an RPS Advisory day, he suffered a very nervous wait in which many panels were rejected. However when Peter’s was presented to the judges we are delighted to share that it was accepted and recommended for the Associate Distinction (ARPS).
Congratulations from us all Peter; the panel looks wonderful and clearly captures the atmosphere of a great evening.
