You only need to learn from the best. Academy Class sponsors annual Scottish Landscape Photography competition, which gathers together and honours the best photographers in the region. This year the competition between landscape photographers was really high.
So, who were the best?
This year the Grand Title – Scottish Landscape Photographer of the Year went to photographer Ian Cameron, who still prefers to shoot in film rather than with digital. Forres-based Ian beat off strong competition from thousands of entries submitted from all over the world to win the prestigious accolade with his magnificently evocative images shot in the Highlands with his “ancient” camera.
Together with the prestigious title, Ian Cameron won a 5-day Adobe Certified Associate (ACA) training course from Academy Class, the UK’s premier software training company worth £1200.

In the category of Seascape photography, the winner is Omer Ahmed. He has won a 3-day Adobe Photoshop 201 “Green Belt” training course from Academy Class worth £850.
