DIPP associate and Best portfolio 2010

I already blogged a bit about getting the associate level for the DIPP (Dutch Institute of Professional Photography), but there was another surprise for me in store.
During the evening were the certificates for License ship and Associate were given to the photographers (2x Associate 4x License) there also was a price for best portfolio 2010, this is the portfolio the international jury selects as their favorite portfolio. Much to my surprise I could go home with both my certificate for Associate level but also with the award for best portfolio 2010.

Of course this motivates me to push even harder 🙂
Because I just got the pictures today I waited with a blog post about this till now. And yeah like most photographers I hate to be in front of the camera (as you can see 🙂 ), well ok at least I tried to smile.
