Prestigious award for Mike's photographic faith

MikeMuscroft2009: Norwich Christian photographer, Mike Muscroft, has just been awarded the prestigious Licentiate of The Royal Photographic Society of Great Britain for his creative work.
 
The award was made after an assessment of Mike’s portfolio by a highly qualified Panel of Fellows of the Society following his recent completion of the NCFE A Level Digital Photography course.
 
Mike’s work combines great photography with Biblical scriptures and is all available to buy on his website www.fotoconcept.co.uk.
 
He said: “The Royal Photographic Society (www.rps.orgwas founded in 1853 to promote the Art and Science of Photography, a mission it continues to this day. To achieve a distinction award from them is a great achievement and recognised internationally.”
 
Mike, a former biker, was converted to Christ through Jingles, who was at the time leading the Norfolk Christian Motorcyclists Association branch.
 
“I take the pictures because I have since become disabled with a neurological illness that affects my walking and mobility and so had to give up work,” explained Mike. “As I had always done photography since a young man it seemed a logical semi-pro career path to centre upon.
 
“I also like to give something back, so being able to capture God’s beautiful creation in a digital format, either as photography or art, and to share it with others is my way of spreading the Good News.
 
Mike attends Sprowston Methodist church on Wroxham Road, where he met his wife some 12 years ago.
