Portrait of HM the Queen

Posted on in Portrait photography

Happy Sapphire Anniversary Your Majesty

At 90 years of age HM The Queen has been reigning over us now for 65 years and is still carrying on strong.   She is a true inspiration to us all.   Thank you Your Majesty for all that you have done, and continue to do, for our country and commonwealth.

I am feeling immensely privileged to have met and photographed HM The Queen on a few occasions.

When attending a course in portrait photography at the Royal Kensington and Chelsea College, we were asked by our tutor to consider how we would measure success – would it be financial, how many people we recruit, books published, recognition, awards, exhibitions etc?    I suspect that financial needs have driven most of my achievements, but photographing HM the Queen is an honour that’s going to be hard to beat!
