Norwich photographer notches up awards hat-trick, Julia Holland from Thorpe Marriot

A photographer from Thorpe Marriott is celebrating a hat-trick of successes.

Julia Holland has won the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers Glamour and Beauty Photographer of the Year.

She owns all-about-image photography in Taverham, shooting portraits, weddings, events and corporate photography.

The 49 year-old, from Jordan Close, also received an Award of Excellence in October for reaching the final in the David Mathias Portrait category in the 2011 Master Photography Awards, run by the Master Photographers Association (MPA). And in August, Mrs Holland was awarded associate membership in portrait photography by the MPA. Candidates must attend an assessment and submit a panel of 20 images.

Mrs Holland said: 'I am thrilled to have had such a great year of achievement. I am always striving to improve my skills and imagery, so receiving recognition within the industry has made all of the hard work worthwhile.'

Mrs Holland is originally from Norwich and studied art at Great Yarmouth College of Art and Design, before gaining a degree in Fine Art at Canterbury College of Art.

She is one of only three photographers in Norfolk to hold the associate level of membership.
