The GDPU is a Scottish photographic organization with a history spanning over 50 years. Over that time it has evolved into a progressive organization promoting the highest standards of photography within clubs whilst serving the needs of Scottish photographers.

Two years ago the GDPU joined the British Photographic Exhibitions (BPE) to further encourage photographers to enter exhibitions and to recognize successful entrants via the Crown Awards distinction scheme.

We Can Make It .. Commended Image

We Can Make It

This scheme enables UK photographers to aggregate their acceptances and upon reaching the accepted aggregate to apply, without charge, for a crown rating.

This year my entry consisted of 12 images, 4 colour, 4 Mono and 4 Nature. Although my nature work isn’t quite up to National standards I occasionally give it a go.

Consequently, none of my nature images were accepted this time round, but I did manage to gain 7 acceptances from my remaining 8 images, including a Commend for Contemplation. A Highly Commend for We Can Make It and a BPE Ribbon for Waiting in Vain.

About admin

John’s involvement with photography has lasted for more than a quarter of a century, although schooled in the use of film John embraced the digital age very early on. He describes himself as a discerning photographer who sees digital imaging as a tool rather than a box of tricks, a photographer whose images are linked by a natural instinct for subject arrangement and attention to detail. His approach to photography is spontaneous – seeking to recapture for the viewer the same mood and atmosphere that drew him to the subject in the first place.
