Competition Judge - Simon Allen MPAGB EFIAP

About Simon Allen MPAGB EFIAP

Simon first took up photography whilst at college, principally with the aim of capturing motor racing action, which was his principal interest at that time. However, after graduating and returning to Dumfries, he joined the local camera club in 1983 and photography became his passion.

He was invited to join the committee of Dumfries Camera Club in 1986 and has remained an active member ever since, having been President of the club on two occasions and Secretary for more years than he cares to remember. He has also spent time on the Executive of the Scottish Photographic Federation.

After encouragement by fellow club members, he entered his first international exhibition in 1986 and received a FIAP ribbon for one of his images. He became an avid entrant to competitions of all types, achieving an AFIAP in 1992 and an EFIAP several years later. Following a submission to the very first PAGB awards adjudication in 1994, he was awarded a DPAGB, with his MPAGB following in 1999.

He enjoys photography of all genres but has probably been most successful with landscape, creative and portrait images. He has also greatly appreciated the opportunity that his hobby has provided him with to meet people with a similar interest, partly through lecturing at clubs and societies throughout the country. Being given the opportunity to appreciate and comment on fellow photographers work has always struck him as a great honour, and something that he has greatly enjoyed being involved in at club, national and international levels for over twenty years.

Long may his passion continue.
