You’ve got just under one week to get your entries in for this month’s competition ‘Broken’! The winner will receive a £25 gift voucher for wexphotographic.co.uk so it’s worth a shot! To enter, send up to two images which fit the theme of ‘Broken’ to us at info@firstpointphotography.co.uk or post them on to our Facebook page.



As well as our courses we’ve been very busy with lots of photo shoots, and of course everyone wants their orders ready for Christmas.  Paul and Stacey are busy assessing course work this week, so it’s up to me to get everyone’s orders printed, fortunately we have Andy with us this week on work experience so he’s giving me a hand.

We apologise for the delay in announcing the winner, however we are pleased to announce that the winner of our October competition ‘Autumn Colours’ is Steve Barber with this image! We thought that this image was most suited to the brief and really shows off the typical autumn colours.  Well done Steve!

The theme is ‘Broken’ and you have until the 30th November to enter one or two images that fit the theme.  You can enter your images by either emailing them to us at info@firstpointphotography.co.uk or post them directly to our Facebook page.
