A top photographer from the south of Scotland was the judge at the recent monthly meeting of Fraserburgh Photographic Society.

The December competition was judged by Joanna MacIntyre DPAGB of Dumfries Camera Club.

Some of her images can be found online at http://gjwildlifephotography.co.uk/

Joanna’s website features details of the photography tours and tuition that she runs in Lockerbie.

In her opening remarks she stressed that the comments she made and marks she awarded were here own opinion and that in photography, as in any other art form, everyone has their own view. She also said that she hoped that her comments would be useful.

Charlie Scott only joined Fraserburgh Photographic Society in September 2014 and his image ‘Blowin’ in the Wind’ came first in the December monthly competition.

In second place was Stanley Parker’s image ‘Aden Park Fireworks’.

There was a tie for third place between ‘Loch Sheil’ by Kevin Potter and ‘Beach Sunset’ by Brian Sandison.

The meeting of Fraserburgh Photographic Society on January 22 will be a show entitled ‘Jack’s Broch’.

The images, made by the late Jack Pressley, a former president and stalwart of the Society, are of the Fraserburgh he knew.

A cordial invitation is offered to all past members of Fraserburgh Photographic Society to come to this meeting.

The meeting will be held in the JIC buildings, Albert Street. Members meet from 7pm to set up, hand in their prints for the competition and for a blether. The show will start at 7.30pm. After the show there will be another opportunity to catch up with old times and for some refreshments.
