school's talented young photographers win competition
photographers at a Burnham-On-Sea school are celebrating after
winning a keenly-contested competition.
youngsters at St Joseph's After School Photography Club, run by
Natalie Harris, were recently invited to grab their cameras
and take a number of shots of outside scenes.
The school asked for the help of Burnham-On-Sea Camera Club to
judge the images.
The overall winner, Joseph Fitzpatrick, has received a professionally
framed copy for his stunning tree photograph, pictured below.
Camera Club Chairman Mike Barnard and Club Secretary Jan Bonus
presented the entrants with printed copies of their images and
said: "These are talented youngsters with a fresh outlook
on the world."
"Talent like this needs encouragement, and the school will
hopefully foster this talent and help it grow."
Headteacher Simon Kingwell added: "Our pupils did very well,
and a thank you goes to Burnham Camera Club for its support. We're
looking forward to the club's annual photo exhibition in May."
