Anthony Wright LRPS

It has been a successful season this year for Anthony, doing very well in both internal and external competitions, and now he has gained his LRPS (Licentiateship) distinction from the Royal Photographic Society.“Today I received the confirmation letter and certificate from the RPS to say I've been awarded the Licentiate of The Society. To say I'm delighted is an understatement. Thanks to all those at Ashford Photographic Society who gave their advice and helped my photography improve over the last 2 years and a big thank you to Richard Walton for his time and invaluable advice.”Below is Anthony’s successful panel.  Congratulations Anthony, well deserved!
