John Botton PSNZ Honours Submision

After working with Michael Boyd-Clark on his awesome PSNZ submission for Fellowship, I decided to put together my own submission for Associateship. I only had two days to make my selection, prepare, print and mount the images before the portfolio was due in Nelson. I assembled 30 images that I felt would make the high standards set by the Photographic Society of New Zealand and with Michaels guidance we selected twelve that worked well together. I spent long hours on Monday night fine tuning the images and soft proofing each one to my selected paper, Breathing Color Elegance Valvet, a stunning textured cotton based paper perfectly suited to the rich colours and fine detail of my landscape images.

Tuesday was spent printing and matting the set ready to shipping down to Nelson. I say “down” because that’s all the way down south on South Island. After the prints were carefully packaged into box, it was off to the local NZ Post office to send off my APSNZ submission. Holding thumbs.
