Mo­tor­cy­clist in the frame to win na­tional pho­tog­ra­phy contest

Macclesfield Express - - MACCLESFIELD PEOPLE -

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.
