Photographer's food focus receives worldwide acclaim

Leamington Editorial 27th Apr, 2018   0

FOOD has been very much on the mind of a Leamington photographer.

Images shot by Hamish Scott-Brown were both runners-up in the prestigious Pink Lady Food Photographer of the Year – a worldwide celebration of food photography and film.

His picture ‘Saffron Fields of Pampore’, in the Politics of Food category, focused on the home of the world famous saffron fields, where the Kashmiri farmers struggle with an Indian government irrigation system which is not connected to a water supply or able to irrigate fields.

And his shot ‘Train Trader – Myanmar’, which showed a woman on selling food on a train in the country formerly known as Burma, featured in the Food for Sale category.

There was also success for Hamish’s step-son Max Rushent who was a finalist in the awards for his short film ‘Dal Lake’ shot at a market in Kashmir.

The competition saw some 8,000 entries submitted from photographers and filmmakers in 60 countries.

The awards evening, at London’s Mall Galleries, was hosted by chef and TV presenter Prue Leith.

Scottish-born Hamish, whose career spans 30 years, runs Leamington-based Photographic Journeys which was born and developed from his passion for both photography and travel.
