Guy snaps winner in the ‘Nikon’ of time

Local photographer bags top international award for baby portrait

TIMING was definitely of the essence for a North Devon photographer whose portrait of a baby boy has won a top international accolade.

The stunning shot of the four-month-old earned Loxhore-based Guy Harrop a bronze award in the International Aperture Awards 2010, the latest of four global awards he won last year.

But while capturing the baby’s expression required plenty of skill and patience, Guy needed to act just as quickly to get his entry submitted with an hour to go before the competition deadline.

“Time was an issue as I was aware of this deadline closing in,” said Guy, who was commissioned to do the shoot by a young North Devon family.

“Fortunately I was able to process in time and send it across for the competition which is sponsored by Nikon Australia.“
