Hadfield is Now a Professionally Recognized Photographer

Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield has been acknowledged for his shots from the space. He has been awarded an honorary Service of Photographic Arts designation by the Professional Photographers of Canada.

"PPOC members thoroughly enjoyed watching his images as they arrived from space", affirmed Jillian Chateauneuf, a PPOC chairwoman. The images have made them realize about the beauty of our planet.

Hadfield is quite delighted to receive the designation. Hadfield thinks it was an honor for him to click those photographs. Without a doubt, it was every photographer's dream.

He gave credit to his photographic instructors as with their guidance and motivation, he has won the award. Hadfield said these photographs are a contribution made to photography in Canada.

He thanked his father to present him his first little 110 instamatic camera and also the Canadian Space Agency and NASA who provided him an opportunity to capture the planet. Since the time Hadfield has returned to earth, members of the PPOC have been planning a campaign to honor his work.

Along with this, Chris Hadfield has also recorded a number of videos during his stint at the International Space Station from December 2012 to May 2013.

One such video is cover of 'Space Oddity'. This five-and-a half-minute YouTube video, which is an absolute a treat to watch, will get offline in mere 12 hours. So, you have just few hours to view the video as the Hadfield's copyright agreement with David Bowie will expire.
