"I entered the EEF Competition encouraged by friends from work. Although, I had in my portfolio some interesting images of one of the most recognizable British brands - Jaguar Land Rover, I certainly didn’t expect to win. This was an incredibly proud moment for me. 
Being awarded in Amateur category has also gave me confidence and courage to finally start my own photography venture."
