Len has won as many as twenty monthly
awards with the SWPP. In one month Len won five "Photographer
of the Month" awards, Digital, Landscape, Pet, Portraiture and Pictorial Photography and the next month won the section with Portraiture and Children.
All monthly winning images will go into the finals at the start of each year for "Photographer of the Year" which is held in London.
Len now spends his time judging and lecturing with the SWPP rather than entering competitions and was awarded a Master member with the SWPP in January 2012.

Most of the work in this production was taken during our photography
courses. The music is from a film called Jonathan Livingston Seagull, that
gave me inspiration at a time in my life that I needed it most, after the
loss of my first wife. Its about a seagull that finds out what life is all
about and the need to be different.
Len Bateman: Photographer of the
Year 2005 Digital Art.
Len has won photographer of the year for an image taken on one of his courses. The image was taken at Milford Haven, and enhanced with Photoshop. The award was presented to Len at the Awards Dinner held at Coventry with the SWPP. Len was also awarded the R2400 printer from Epson. During the year Len has won as many of fourteen monthly winners for his Environmental Photography, Portraiture, Digital Art, Landscape, Wedding, Pictorial, and Pictorial images. We will show you how you can create images to win awards, as many of our past delegates have already done.
There are images all around us, every day, every second. Every day they are different, lighting changes and is never the same. We have to learn to "see" all over again to become a photographer.
