ARPS distinction awarded to David Carine

GPC congratulates member David Carine who has recently been successful in his attempt to gain the photographic distinction of Associateship of the Royal Photographic Society (ARPS).

The ARPS distinction requires the photographer to submit a body of work/project of a high standard including a written Statement of Intent. The panel of 15 images must show strong technical ability using techniques and photographic practices appropriate to the subject. 

David chose to submit his panel in the relatively new distinction genre of Landscape Photography and included the following Statement of Intent.

The Coast

With my panel, I am hoping to share my love of dramatic, rugged and sometimes inhospitable coastal scenes that I have been fortunate enough to enjoy and photograph.

I have captured moments that will stay with me forever. Each of these images reminding me of the long journeys, early-morning hikes, and often inclement weather, transporting me back to the feeling of peace, calm and tranquillity that I found during those moments.

I hope that the panel will resonate with the viewer, perhaps even evoking and emotion or feeling of being in these remote coastal locations.
