    My 11yr old stepdaughter after being awarded her LRPS at the assessment day at Focus on Imaging earlier this month. I've taught her well Smile

    Well done, I was at the advisory day at the National Media Museum, when Saskia's panel was discussed. Stunning images, one day I may even be able to say I was there early in her career.

    Very well done..! What's amusing is the need to mention it was "achieved" with a D80.. As if this was surprising...I used one quite happily for some time, I moved to D300 for the faster fps and a couple of other features, but because models had/have moved on it doesn't mean your existing device suddenly can't take pictures any more...even though the marketing boyos would try to convince you otherwise...!!

    What a lovely thread after the last one I have just read; nothing surprisng about a Nikon D80 but a wonderful achievement at the age of 11; a very enjoyable photographic future awaits her with such a natural talent.

    Wow what an achievement. My wife and I both know how much work is involved in pulling together an L panel and the assessment is a nail biting experience so to do this at 11 is a fantastic achievement. One to watch!

    Fabulous, you must be very proud of her.


    23 Mar 2012 - 10:25 AM

    Huge congratulations to Saskia for a great achievement.

    But also a very honourable mention for her parents for encouraging and facilitating her photography.

    Great story.

    Well done to Saskia - an exciting achievement and brilliant at her age. I still remember when I got mine and it's still one of my top ten moments.
    Is there a link to her panel? I'd love to see it properly.

    Obviously she is a very talented young lady. Congratulations to her on such a fine achievement. Andy

    I'd agree that the fact that she has achieved this with a D80 is of no consequence, it's the eye behind the camera that's important. That aside, however, many congratulations are in order; your stepdaughter obviously has a good eye for a photo.

    Thank you for all your kind comments from Saskia, her mum and myself. I have posted a shot of Saskia's hanging plan for you all to see. A press release was issued yesterday by the RPS, so we're hoping a few magazines will take an interest in her.

    Thanks again
