Pho­tog­ra­pher still in Hunt for prizes

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Street Watch -

PHO­TOG­RA­PHER Bruce Hunt has ended his time at Com­mu­nity News­pa­per Group on a high.

The As­cot res­i­dent is a fi­nal­ist in the Older Peo­ple Speak Out awards for best photo spread.

He won Older Peo­ple Speak Out awards in 2000 and in 2013.

His en­try was made up of four pho­to­graphs taken for Com­mu­nity News­pa­per Group, which de­pict older peo­ple in a pos­i­tive light.

The vet­eran pho­tog­ra­pher’s Com­mu­nity News­pa­per Group ca­reer spanned more than two decades af­ter work­ing in news­pa­pers in England and Ire­land.

“I have al­ways en­joyed my work; it’s not like work for me, as it’s some­thing I re­ally en­joy do­ing,” he said.

“Work­ing for Com­mu­nity News­pa­per Group is quite re­ward­ing. You get to meet so many in­ter­est­ing peo­ple.” Hunt left Com­mu­nity News­pa­per Group ear­lier this year and has since spent two months sail­ing around Ire­land and is now work­ing on fix­ing up two vin­tage cars.

“To be hon­est, I won­der how I ever found time to work,” he said.

While he is en­joy­ing the laid-back life­style, Hunt said he was not sure what the fu­ture held.

“You never know, I might be Lazarus and make a come­back.”
