Morning:

Yet more from the Garden Shed!

 

Iain McGowan FRPS has been a professional photographer since 1993 specialising in landscape and environmental photography and more recently he has begun to produce intriguing environmental images and multi-image presentations.

This, coupled with his membership of several prestigious groups of photographers, has ensured that his work has been widely published and exhibited. He is the author of no less than seventeen monochromatic and colour illustrated books featuring the Hebridean Islands and Highlands of Scotland, the cities of Brighton and Hove, Chichester and Portsmouth, the landscapes of

Southern England and numerous aspects of the county of Sussex.

Iain, who is an accomplished photographer well-known for his sensitive and atmospheric interpretation of the British Landscape, also runs a series of workshops during the year throughout the UK. Details of which can be found on the Focus Group website.


Afternoon:
The Millennium Cup Competition for Prints.

Judge: Paul Mitchell FRPS
