This season 2017-18 has seen a change to some of the rules regarding competition entries. The L&CPU standard sizing has been increased to 1200px by 1600px for digital images, which we have also adopted. In addition to this, and after the success we had last season with the Seasonal PDI competitions, there have been some changes to the number of entries per competition.
The third of this season’s guest presentations was given by Gordon Jenkins APAGB MIoP.
Gordon is a man with many roles and distinctions in the world of photography: President and Treasurer of Chorley Photographic Society, Treasurer and former President of the L&CPU, Chairman of the BPE and, above all, the new President of the PAGB itself. So we were lucky and privileged to have such a busy man in our midst.
There was never a thought to start with about making this image, the whole thing started off as a bit of fun with Jake the day my mum and Zara threw powder all over him.
