Bearsden Photoworks

, Bearsden, United Kingdom



Bearsden Photoworks Kevin Thomas is the owner/operator at Bearsden Photoworks, a company dedicated to not only capturing your vision, but also providing support to those looking to learn and develop their own photography skills.

As Kev himself says "I've always been interested in music, and more recently theatre, and I'm happiest when I'm able to shoot live music, and performances. I've also made it part of my aim in life to help others looking to learn about photography. If I can help them to get the same buzz out of shooting, I'll be a happy man."

He has also tackled some sensitive subjects in his photography and helped a local organisation, WOW Glasgow, by covering a number of their promotional and charity events.

"Working with Mandie @ WOW Glasgow has been an absolutely amazing and humbling experience. The work that Mandy and her team do in supporting women with hair loss through alopecia and cancer treatments, and the results they achieve is just staggering. I've seen people with low self-esteem walk out with their heads held high, and a new view on life. Truly wonderful"

Each year, The British Journal of Photography run a competition called Portrait of Britain. As BJP describe it; "Portrait of Britain is an award-winning annual exhibition which showcases the many faces of modern Britain. Organised by British Journal of Photography in partnership with JCDecaux, it is the biggest ever outdoor showcase of contemporary photography. We want to see the people of our country through your eyes. Whether you’re shooting family, friends, yourself or simply those you find interesting, we welcome pictures from every corner of Britain, from casual snapshots and selfies to documentary projects and street photography. We want to see portraits that reflect the unique heritage and diversity of our country.". "BJP’s editorial team will select 100 winning portraits for a nationwide public exhibition to be showcased on JCDecaux digital screens. Visible on high streets, roadsides and in transport hubs across the length and breadth of the country for the month September 2017, the exhibition will be seen by an audience of millions.". Having followed the competition for a number of years, I decided to take the plunge and enter three images of my own into this year's contest. Judging takes place soon after tonight's closing date, and winners will be notified prior to the images being displayed across the UK through September. I've chosen three simple images, but images that have a story to tell. Each character joined by a common theme, but very individual. So, now the wait begins. Let's see what happens.
