Little Hallingbury photographer Maria Michael’s skill with animal portraits has been recognised.

The founder of Detheo Photography had two merited images in The Societies of Photographers' international competition for 20in x 16in prints.

Her colour shot of a dog in snow, entitled "Caught in the Act", scored 82 points out of 100 while her black and white masterpiece, "The Power of the Stallion", got 84.

Her work was up against 650 entries from all over the world. Just 260 images earned merit status.

They were then displayed at the London Photo Convention Trade Show, where 10,000 visitors had the chance to view them.

Colin Jones, The Societies of Photographers’ chief executive, said: “The quality of photography in this year’s competition was outstanding. The merited images and finalists represent some of the best entered into the competition and have competed against some of the world’s best photographers.”

Maria, who launched Detheo Photography 12 years ago, has won multiple awards. She has been a guest speaker at the International Photography Convention in London and The Photography Show in Birmingham.

“My work is my passion and the greatest reward is to see how much it means to my clients," she said. "However, it always gives me a great sense of pride to see my photographs awarded alongside some of the world's most amazing photographers.”
