UK Photographer Wins Double At Sony World Photography Awards: emile

UK photographer Nick Dolding has scooped a double win at this year's Sony World Photography Awards for his image 'Emile'.

The image has won both the Open Portraiture category and the UK National Award. Nick is an advertising photographer with over 30 years experience in the business. 

Describing the winning work, Dolding says: "In May 2017, I shot Emile on location in London, when I was commissioned to shoot stills for a commercial campaign.  The campaign took its inspiration from Wes Anderson's ‘The Royal Tenenbaums’. Emile's styling was so fantastic I couldn't resist shooting a portrait of him. In this image I wanted to retain the humour but have him looking aloof and ‘hoity’."

The photographer continues: "I'm delighted to have won such a prestigious award and it's all the better that I achieved it with this image because Emile is one of my favourite shots from 2017. I actually have it as the home screen image on my phone. I never tire of picking up my camera and having my image chosen from so many entries across so many countries, really is the best incentive for me to carry on doing what I love."

The success is announced today alongside the winners all 63 National Awards, and the 10 categories of the Awards’ Open competition. The overall and Professional category winners of the Awards will be announced April 19.  For more details visit the World Photography Organisation website.
