Master of Photography Reality Show – 2018 Season Call to Photographers

I’m pleased to announce that the European photography TV talent show, Master of Photography, is back and applications are now open for photographers to apply to take part in its third series!

I thoroughly enjoyed watching season 2, where contestants competed in a series of photographic challenges in different countries to prove their creative and technical skills. The usual reality-TV format held true, where a panel of industry expert judges eliminated one contestant each week until there was a winner.

Here’s some scenes from the show on YouTube.

Making the application to become a contestant

You know what, I’m going to apply and maybe I’ll get my 15-minutes of fame. What’s the worst that can happen?

My application

Well, I still haven’t put together the two minute-video, but I’ve shortlisted the following 10 images which I’ll consider submitting in support of my application – I’ll think about it a bit more. The premise is that I would like them to see the range of my photographic interests/skills, including…fine art, stock, editorial, architecture, nature, etc. Basically so they know I’m not just a one trick pony: Here’s some potentials:
