Enter our competition with photographer Matthew Rycraft

Matthew Rycraft, owner of Matthew Rycraft Photography in Southport

The Southport Visiter series of newspapers has teamed up with talented local photographer Matthew Rycraft.

Ten readers can apply on line to win exclusive photo shoots, which will form part of the new “Signature portrait series”.

Whilst Matt is well known for his creative and stylish wedding photography, he says that after visiting Las Vegas earlier this year for the international Photography EXPO, his creative ideas have exploded, following the trip and using new technology, to bring a unique and special approach.

While Matt was in Las Vegas, he assisted visiting photographers with their exhibition shoots.

Matt commented: “I met some great photographers, and worked with three of them over the four days as they asked me to help produce their location styles, and liked very much my ideas.”

With this joint Southport Visiter series competition, Matt is asking people to apply via a simple email comp@matthewrycraft.co.uk their ideas for a location in the Sefton and West Lancashire area, and reasons to become one of the lucky 10 local subjects.

The entry ideas could be centred around lifestyle, and significant moments in people’s lives, such as graduation from high school or college, young engagements, great mates, work & skills themed special shoots or special anniversaries.

The winners will give input and ideas to their ideal photo shoot, and receive a full room-sized framed print after the location shoot, and post production in October absolutely free.
