After many years taking pictures at family events, Peter attended a beginners photography day and it turned into a major hobby. While lockdown has restricted his work in towns and cities, he has been experimenting with table top photography and created a studio in his dining room.

Peter said: "I am pleased with my quick progress to LRPS standards although I recognise the support I have received from many experienced photographers around Royston who offer advice and guidance freely."

To enter the award, Peter had to submit a portfolio of 10 photos, which the assessors praised as "a strong panel, well laid out and showing a great variety".
