Motorcyclist in the frame to win national photography contest
A MOTORBIKE fanatic is in the running to win a national photography competition.
Keith Rogers, 69, has made it through to the final round of the photo-biking contest Moto Foto.
Organised by the UK’s leading motorbike insurance broker, Carol Nash, and run in partnership with specialist rider magazine Motorcycle News, the competition aims to fuse two of Britain’s most passionate pastimes, motorcycling and photography.
Keith, a retired engineering buyer living on Drummond Way, Macclesfield, entered his picture, above, into the competition’s ‘static bike’ category and has been shortlisted as a finalist by a panel of biking and photography experts.
Other categories include action, scenic and bike art.
If selected as one of the 12 winners, Keith could see his photo featured in a 2015 calendar, which will be handed out to thousands of bike fans at the Motorcycle Live Show taking place at the NEC in Birmingham running from November 22 to 30.
Keith, who currently owns and rides a 900 Honda Hornet and 2003 Triumph Bonneville, is also in the running to win £1,000 in cash and a Nikon D7100 digital camera kit worth more than £1,000.
He said: “I’m really chuffed that my photo has been shortlisted and that it could make it into Carole Nash’s 2015 calendar.
“It would be great if I won.”
The winners will be announced next month.
