Feel sorry for poor old Pete

I was looking at Pete's portfolio & it struck me (no not the folio), Pete has a lot of RC awards on his images, however Pete does not have any EC awards.
Yes I know that Pete is the editor of EPZ but who gives him Editors choice awards he can't award himself the award can he?
Just an observation that I have made today and thought I would share it with you all.

but then, since he posted them I guess that means they were all "Editor's Choice"? Smile

Perhaps his photos just aren't good enough.

Sorry Pete...

(loses all chance of another EC...)

maybe one of us should be elected to give Pete an award now and again for his efforts in images

No one would dare give me one because of the stick they'd get. The occasional Reader's Choice Award keeps me happy Wink

What you guy's don't know, is that in Pete's office, on his vast oak desk, sits a mug of hot tea with the words 'worlds best photographer' on it.

Who needs an EC when you have that?

Thanks for that MATTW an insight into the secrets of the inersanctum of EPZ next you'll say there are 6 page 3 models hanging about looking for folk to take their pics LOL

I should state that this information is 'from the grapevine', and by 'grapevine' I mean 'guess'

Pete - was I right, or do I need to start up special collection to buy you a 'worlds best photographer mug'?

No need Matt, I have a camera strap with Expert printed on it. That and my Manfrotto tripod with Professional running down it are all I need Wink

I did offer to hand out ECs on Pete's behalf, so that, on that rare occassion when he posted a good one, he could get one himself. Strangely, he just went a white colour and assured me that he could live without one. Smile

Think on folks - Pete's the Editor -HE chooses the pics he puts in his portfolio, therefore, they're all EC's Smile))
