Success in Stranger After Dark Competition

After my night and day street photography workshop I had a few decent portraits of complete strangers.  I decided to enter one of them ‘Zombie Boy’ into a photo competition that was organised by book publisher Thames and Hudson.  The challenge of the competition was to take a portrait of a complete stranger during the hours of darkness.  You weren’t allowed to take ‘sneak’ shots and the subject had to give you permission to take the photo.  Each photographer was only allowed to enter one image.

The results were announced two days ago and I’m really please to say my picture came in second! 🙂  My prize is a copy of Cardiff After Dark and Street Photography Now, two excellent books that should be on any photographer’s shelf.

The top nine entries, of the 70+ that were entered, are shown in order below starting with the winner:
