Lee Stoneman from Wrekenton, Gateshead has been selected as the fourth winner of the Jessops Share your summer competition; winning an exhibition across 52 store windows.
Share your summer is a campaign by camera and photography retailer Jessops, searching for seven of the very best summer snaps to showcase in the windows of its 52 nationwide stores. Lee Stoneman from Wrekenton has been selected as the fourth winner and, after much deliberation, was plucked from the thousands of submissions to display his work in Jessops stores up and down the country. Lee’s stunning shot of the Tyne Bridge cleverly plays on natural light.
Lee said: “I’m over the moon to be picked by Jessops to display my work in 52 store windows. I love the quayside at Newcastle, especially early morning when this image was taken. I captured this image just as the light was shining through the trees onto the leaves and illuminating the dew. The tide was turning which gave some great reflections. I hope my photo being on display will inspire people to look at Newcastle in a different light – and start taking more pictures of it!”
Lee’s summer snap will be on display for all to view in Jessops Newcastle – as well as 51 more stores – for a whole week in July. On top of a week-long window display, Lee will also be invited to proudly display his work in the Olympus-sponsored Project Space Gallery in Bermondsey, London from August 8 to 14. The exhibition will be open to the public and anyone can visit to see the amazing images that were taken during the campaign.
