He received 2 Merits in the Most Promising Classic Portrait section, 2 Awards of excellence for Most Promising Avante Garde Wedding and 2 Awards of Excellence for Avante Garde wedding. He then got the trophies for Most Promising Classic Wedding and Most Promising Avante Garde Wedding as well as the overall Most Promising Photographer award.
National Chief Executive Colin Buck was in Scotland to present the awards and commented on the high standard of the 800 prints entered. Judges were Desi Fontaine and Gill Shaw
"I was really surprised at how well my prints did, as there was some incredible work on show. I had to travel all the way from Orkney to Edinburgh on Sunday for the event, but it was well worth the trip".
Overall Scottish Photographer of the Year was Gordon McGowan, who is John's mentor.
