The Professional Photographic Nulook Competition 1992
As 3 time winner of Nulook, the rest of the industry are now following in your tracks. This feat will now go down in the record book, I believe, never to be repeated at such a high level of competition in the professional photographic industry.
Congratulations and well done to a very worthy winner."

"The standard was the best we have ever seen over the many years this competition has been going.
"Once again you produced an image that stood head and shoulders above the very best other leading photographers could offer. In fact the industry generally has recognised your winning print in a class all of it's own which indeed makes you a very worthy winner.
