Charlie Waite, founder and owner of the 'Take A View' Landscape Photographer of the Year awards has confirmed that the current winner, Antony Spencer, will be joining the team of tour leaders at Light & Land.
Charlie Waite said: "In winning Landscape Photographer of the Year, Antony demonstrated that among thousands photographers he has that special ability to make an image which transports the viewer to the same place where he the photographer stood, enabling the viewer of the image to drink from the same emotional source that he did.
In Antony we also saw a natural talent for training and the sharing of photographic expertise and passion – key attributes in our Light & Land tour leaders. Antony is a very accomplished landscape photographer, has high standards and cares deeply that his work should awaken the viewer and he achieves this in abundance.
We welcome Antony to the Light & Land team and I personally look forward to working alongside this knowledgeable and inspirational photographer."
