Welcome to another edition of Skipton Photographers Showcase. As per usual, we have an array of fantastic and eclectic photographs from some extremely talented folks! From portraits to landscapes and everything in between, the varied nature of photography is illustrated in this week’s showcase!
If you have a photographic inclination, send your photographs, along with a short bio about yourself and your inspiration to Photography@theskiptonpress.co.uk to be featured in next week’s edition.
I’ve always been passionate about photography and since having my children I’ve loved capturing those special moments and their beautiful, sometimes cheeky, personalities. I particularly enjoy natural, unobtrusive photography because of the stories it tells and the emotive nature of the subject. Photographing outdoor and on location means that you and your family are in beautiful yet comfortable surroundings, meaning everybody is more relaxed and children can play, laugh and be themselves.
My name is Andrew Hoggarth I do wildlife and landscape photography around Skipton and the dales whilst walking my dog Ziggy.
I took up photography when I finished working and bought a camera with the Gift Vouchers my generous ex-colleagues at Skipton Building Society presented to me.
Since then I have taken loads of photographs.This one reminds me so much of summer days that hopefully won’t be too long away. I put photographs on my Facebook Page but that is about as far as it goes.
I am currently Vice President of Skipton Craven Rotary Club and enjoy all the fund raising we do there including The Great Skipton Santa Fun Run. I have always lived in Skipton and have enjoyed writing articles for the Skipton Press about our hometown.
My name is Sean Jukes a local portrait studio creating fine art portraits of families and children in and around Yorkshire.
I’m Jude Kershaw, 15 and from Skipton. I specialise in authentic vintage portraits, working both on 120 roll film and digitally. I’ve been taking photographs for the past two years and hope to do for many more!
My name is Helen Campbell, ad I’m very much an amateur when it comes to photography. I’m inspired by the natural world and by architectural details, and I have a particular soft spot for ‘ghost signs’ too. You’ll see some of my photos on the Holy Trinity Facebook page.
The Skipton Press website is full to the brim with fantastic articles from people in and around Skipton. You can find upcoming events, stories of inspiring locals, even advice on where to eat and much more!
