3 out of three ain't bad!

17th April 2011
Yesterday three members of the Mayo Photographic Club went through the truly harrowing, but enlightening, experience of being judged by our peers. I am delighted to tell you that all three of us were successful in obtaining the status of Licentiate of the Irish Photographic Federation (LIPF). Here is a record of the three of us enjoying our 15 minutes of fame!

myself, Marion Galt and Frank Fullard

This was my panel:

Photo comment By Monique Cremers: Congratulations Lyle, what a wonderful achievement. I agree fully with all the comments on the site and they are all written so beautifully... It must be the Irish-ness. Licentiated! What else could they do? Love, Monique
Photo comment By Jean: Wow..is this the equivalent of the Oscars in the world of photography. A richly deserved honour, Lyle. Now where is Connie in her glam frock??

Photo comment By Peter Ewart: Congratulations to all 3 of you. I expect to see liberal use of LIPF on all marketing materials from now on Lyle.
Photo comment By Pat Mullan: Lyle, your work certainly justifies the fact that 'a picture is worth a thousand words'. Seamus Heaney advises us to 'walk around with our mouth open' and you most certainly do that. Where others look, you see!
