Ash Wroughton Cam­era: Canon EOS 5D Mark III Lo­ca­tion: Not­ting­ham

Ash is an award-win­ning pho­tog­ra­pher who is en­thu­si­as­tic about pho­tograph­ing city life and ur­ban scenes in the city of Not­ting­ham. Like many pho­tog­ra­phers, Ash started out tak­ing por­traits, but he soon dis­cov­ered that his real pas­sion was out­door photography, with a par­tic­u­lar in­ter­est in cap­tur­ing ur­ban land­scapes and street photography.

Since clos­ing his stu­dio back in 2013, Ash is now best known for cap­tur­ing the mood and at­mos­phere around Not­ting­ham in black and white.


John Bar­ton Cam­eras: Fujifilm X-T2, Sony RX100 IV Lo­ca­tion: Wi­gan

A for­mer school­teacher, John be­gan to take photography se­ri­ously again when his re­tire­ment in 2010 meant he had more time to spare. He is a mir­ror­less cam­era en­thu­si­ast, and bought into the Fujifilm X-T se­ries at the start, in 2014. Since then, he has steadily up­graded and added to his sys­tem.

John’s favourite sub­jects are land­scapes, ar­chi­tec­ture and street photography, and his pic­tures have been shown on BBC TV. The op­por­tu­nity to cap­ture Ox­ford’s unique build­ings and peo­ple was a chal­lenge he rel­ished.
