Competition Closed


Humans, by our very nature, are always in pursuit of something, whether that be happiness, adventure, love, knowledge, the truth, peace, freedom, wealth, or passion. We always need something to strive for in order to give our lives purpose and direction.

With this theme we were asking for entries that depicted the act of being in pursuit. Perhaps capturing the pursuit of a perfect moment, chasing down a competitor, animals in pursuit of prey, children playing a simple game of chase, or perhaps photographs that illustrated your pursuit of the perfect lighting conditions, angle or composition.

Competition Judge:

Richard Mills

Growing up in the beautiful county of Hampshire, Richard first became interested in photography at the age of 11 when he was given his first camera – a little Kodak 110 pocket camera – which accompanied him everywhere.

Richard's interest and passion for photography grew as he progressed from 110 pocket cameras to 35mm compact cameras and then bought his first SLR at about the age of 14. His passion was further encouraged whilst at college, where he had access to dark rooms, enabling him to experiment with developing and printing his work.

Photography went hand in hand with an appreciation of art and, more importantly for Richard, architecture. For several years, whilst at University, architectural photography featured heavily in his portfolio – both in its own right and as the basis for illustrations and architectural renderings.

After University, family life beckoned, and photography took a back seat, relegated to family holidays and special occasions.

It wasn’t until Richard started dabbling with digital photography as a minor part of his job that his love affair with cameras and photography was finally rekindled. His first DSLR saw his photography rocket from around 4 rolls of film a year to over 4000 photographs during his first year with his DSLR and almost 70,000 photographs last year.

His infectious love of photography led to a number of private commissions followed by his first commercial commissions (with international retailer Marks & Spencer).

Since then he has continued to seek commercial and private commissions and is lucky enough to be able to count Marks & Spencer Plc & The Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity among his corporate clients. In addition to taking on commissions, he is an active member of local camera club, having been a committee member for the past 4 or 5 years. As a result of this, he has been heavily involved in competitions within the club - both organising and judging.

Richard is never happier than when he has a camera in his hands and sees photography as a constant learning experience. He particularly enjoys food photography and architectural photography, but is open to new photographic experiences.
