Dundee Photographer Scoops Yet Another Major Scottish Photography Accolade
Posted : 23 February 2017
The awards keep rolling in for Dundee photographer, Shahbaz Majeed of Frame Focus Capture Photography, who is no stranger to receiving worldwide recognition of his work.
In his most recent success, Shahbaz is among this years finalists for Scottish Landscape Photographer of the Year 2016. His image of Dundee, titled ‘Welcome Home‘ has made it all the way to the final round of this prestigious competition, commended in the 'Urban’ category.
This is the competition’s third year and also the third consecutive time Shahbaz has been a finalist with one of his images. This time with the award being for an image of his hometown, the success is all the more pleasing.
Shahbaz, who also works as a Web Development Manager at the University of Dundee, was understandably delighted saying "I am extremely proud to have my work recognised in such a way once again. It is particularly humbling to gain recognition for my work on a national level especially in a competition celebrating the best of Scotland. I am always proud when my images do well, especially the ones of Dundee and having achieved a hat-trick of awards in this particular competition is all the more rewarding."
Shahbaz delivers workshops all over the country for those who want to learn his photography skills for themselves and is invited by camera clubs/organisations around the country to give a presentation of his work to inspire others. His work has appeared in publications across the world and his image of the Forth Bridge is also featured on the new Clydesdale Bank polymer five pound.
His image will now be on display in related exhibitions as well as appearing in the Collection Three book that follows the awards.
