Following The Olympic and Paralympic Games in 2012, Adrian has since been named Sports Photographer of the Year 2012 by The Sports Journalists Association and won the coveted Ed Lacey Trophy. He won The London Games portfolio category and highly commended for his Sports Portfolio. (adrian dennis 2016)

Whilst I understand that it has taken Adrian some time to be where he is now, to achieve the things he has achieved, I really like how his work turns out and one day hopefully people will be using my images as part of their studying and career development plans.
