November 2010

Thanks to a strong portfolio and a successful 'doorstepping' of the British politician David Miliband, on the day he announced his withdrawal from front bench politics, Naomi Goggin has been named The Times Young Photographer of the Year 2010.

The annual competition, sponsored by Canon UK, is designed to find the UK's best young news photographer and, as well as an upcoming six-month training placement with The Times newspaper, Naomi Goggin received a Canon EOS 5D Mark II DSLR, the Canon EF24-70mm f/2.8L USM and EF70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM zoom lenses, and the Canon Speedlite 580EX II flashgun as part of her prize.

Goggin was one of six shortlisted photographers whose work was shown during the Canon Pro Photo Solutions event, held in London on 26 and 27 October 2010, and she beat off the challenges of Bethany Clarke, Adam Gray, Adam Gerrard, Jonathan Hyams and Joel Marston to win the competition.

The Picture Editor of The Times, Paul Sanders - who co-chaired the judging panel with Nick Millen from Canon Professional Imaging - explained: "Naomi is quite a raw talent but her passion and determination to get something different was the deciding factor. She has a lot to learn and I'm looking forward to working with her - I have no doubt that she'll be as successful as the previous winners."

CPN spoke to Naomi Goggin about her win and she revealed: "Photojournalism was something I've always wanted to do, but I think it was more of a dream than something I would try and realise. I bought a digital camera at the beginning of this year and then I went travelling for three months, both to travel and to try to get to grips with the camera and improve my skills. I came back and got a waitressing job to try and fit freelance jobs around work and get into the field."

Naomi Goggin initially entered three images - one picture in each of the competition's initial categories of Lifestyle, Portraiture and Reportage - and then, like the other five shortlisted photographers, was challenged to find a news story in her local area as a final assignment.

Goggin revealed: "I found out that the new Lord Mayor [of London] was getting selected and went along to the Guildhall in London. I got chatting to some of the other photographers there, including a guy from The Times, and they told me about [David] Miliband making his decision that afternoon and that they were going to go down [to his house]." David Miliband stood down from front bench politics several days after losing out in the contest for the leadership of the Labour Party to his younger brother Ed Miliband.

She explained: "We ended up being outside his door literally three minutes before he came out, then I found out he came out because a guy from The Times, Chris Harris, had rung the doorbell to ask if he could come out for a photocall. So, I thought ‘if that's what a person from The Times would do, that's what I should do'. The worse thing that could happen is he doesn't answer his doorbell. I wasn't any more daunted asking him than I would be asking anybody else for a portrait."

Sisters in Kibber Village, India. This was Naomi Goggin's entry in the 'Portraiture' category of The Times Young Photographer if the Year competition.

David Millband did answer his doorbell and Naomi Goggin was invited inside. She told CPN: "He was very personable and really generous in giving me that opportunity. I explained the competition and the final assignment. I tried to not overwhelm him - he was very kind about it all. If I want to photograph people I just have to take the initiative and go for it; be bold sometimes." In fact, she had to borrow an old tripod from Miliband's wife, Louise, for the shoot and "when I was inside I took maybe 20 photos." It was enough to convince the judges and clinch The Times Young Photographer of the Year award for Naomi Goggin.

Of the future Goggin revealed: "I have now got the camera [EOS 5D Mark II], which I have wanted for some time, two lenses and a flash and I'm just really keen to getting started now. I'm saving up for other lenses as well - probably a 50mm portrait lens to start with. I'd like to get into a position where I could photograph in a style that promotes international development, promoting human rights in some way and going to a conflict or post-conflict situation - that's the kind of story I like reading. With The Times I just want to use the opportunity to try absolutely everything; anything I can get my hands on."
