Competition Judge:

Mac Bouchere

Mac Bouchere F.R.P.S., originally from Jersey in the Channel Islands now lives in South Devon. He is a Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society, a Western Counties photo club Judge and Speaker and a photographer and photo tutor. He is an avid fan of photography as a means of producing visually stimulating images. They can be of any subject, using any technique, but must be able to cause the viewer to imagine what the photographer was trying to convey. He feels that it’s better that an image causes a viewer to find their own message in it than none at all and very strongly that it should be the visual power of the image that stirs response, not the essay that is required to accompany it.

His personal photography is predominately of landscapes, using light to help direct the viewer to the key element/s of the image. A long time fan of the concept of “pre-visualising” the image, sometimes going back to a location many times to try to get the image he felt conveyed the right emotions for himself.
He confesses to being superficial and selfish in his own image making and is happy to concede that his photography is akin to Marmite – “you love it or you hate it”.

However he enjoys seeing good images of any subject matter and has always felt that Camera Club competitions should be considered a wonderful opportunity to learn how to take better images. Mac finished by saying: “If the judge approaches their role well, then everybody in the room should learn something new during the meeting, including the judge”.
