National Portrait Photographer of the Year Award for Ray and Julie Dixon!

The husband and wife team that comprise ‘Ray and Julie Photography’ have been awarded the National Portrait Photographer of the Year Award 2019, a highly acclaimed prize that they are “over the moon” to win!

Ray and Julie Dixon, who are based on Eastgate in Beverley, both worked for the Humberside Fire & Rescue Service before leaving to turn their photography passion into a business. They currently hold the Yorkshire Master Photographer of the Year Award and were presented with the National Portrait Photographer of the Year Award on 9th February at the Hilton Hotel Warwick.

As the Chairman of the NPA said, Ray and Julie’s win is “most fitting, they have been producing the most consistently high standard of photography for the past few years, and this award proves the high personal service and high standard of photography they produce on a daily basis.”

To win such an award, competitors must demonstrate their ability to produce photographs of outstanding quality on a regular basis shown by monthly entries over the course of a year. In addition to this, ‘Ray and Julie Photography’ have raised £18,450 for national charities, Guide Dogs, Lullaby Trust and CRY as part of a wider group of Professional Photographers.
