Check out these award-winning shots by members of the Vernon Photography Club – Vernon Morning Star
Vernon photographers have award-winning images to share.
The Vernon Photography Club has won a silver medal in the North Shore Photographic Challenge (NSPC), BC’s premier photo competition for nearly 40 years. The contest attracts hundreds of photographers and clubs from across the province each year.
The relatively small Vernon club has been punching above its weight in competitions for several years now, winning awards over clubs in the Lower Mainland with four to five times as many members.
“The Vernon club has always welcomed photographers of all skill levels, many of whom have gone on to become excellent photographers and have added to the general level of skill that the club now enjoys. The club always welcomes all photographers; from absolute beginners who may come -be taking a camera and wanting to learn from qualified experts,” club spokesman Ian Bull said.
Six local photographers represented the club at this year’s Challenge: Mary-Anne Morgan, Lois McNiven, Svetlana Shkuratova, Dale Eurich, Richard Hues and Bruce Borrowman.
For his entry titled “Metal Skyline”, McNiven created a miniature skyline from metallic objects reflecting off a surface, such as skyscrapers at the water’s edge. Shkuratova’s photo, “There Was a Twisted Crow,” captures the image of a uniquely distorted crow through glass. Hues’ entry, “Aruban Classic”, is a standard black and white portrait that captures exceptional detail.
