Edinburgh College student Oliver Henderson has been crowned the winner of Calumet Photographic’s first ever Student Photographer of the Year Award.

Commenting on Oliver's image, Judge and Managing Director of Calumet Photographic UK, Jon Warner, said: "It was extremely difficult to pick a winner as the quality of entries was so very high, but we felt that Oliver’s image not only employed a high degree of technical merit, it is also an image of great impact, creativity and style. The use of light, composition and story-telling really set it apart from some very worthy runners-up."

Oliver, who has won £11,000 worth of photography gear, said: "I feel very proud and thankful to the people who have helped me to achieve this, like the tutors at Edinburgh College who constantly push me to realise my potential - although I feel I still have far to go. My inspiration for the image was something my brother once said: "fashion is pure fantasy" which made me think of science-fiction. I loved the idea of aliens spotting this beautiful girl and wanting to try and get close to her in the only way aliens can - it’s kind of weird thought process but there you go! I would again like to thank Calumet Photographic for having faith in me too."

The runners-up of the Calumet Photographic Student Photographer of the Year Award were: Maria Karpova, University of the Arts London; Sioned Evans, University of Wales, Trinity Saint David; Joe Till, Walsall College; Monty Cholmeley, Oundle School; Katarzyna Janicka-Wojtowicz, City of Glasgow College; Ieva Vaitkuviene, London College of Contemporary Arts; Jolanta Ziarnik, West College Scotland; Thomas Craner-Buckley, University of the West of England and Jack Visser, West Lothian College.
