AMATEUR photographer Paul Higham is in the running to secure a podium finish in a national photography contest.
The 59-year-old, from Stubbington, has made it through to the final round of motorbike insurance broker Carole Nash’s photo-biking contest, Moto Foto.
There are four categories – action, scenic, static bike, and bike art – in the contest, which aims to fuse motorcycling and photography.
The married father-of-four, who has been riding bikes since 1971, entered his picture into the action category and has been shortlisted as a finalist by a panel of biking and photography experts.
He said: ‘I’m really chuffed that my photo has been shortlisted and that it could make it into Carole Nash’s 2015 calendar. Hopefully my entry can gather enough votes to be one of the winners.’
If selected as one of the 12 winners, Mr Higham could see his photo featured in the calendar, which will be handed out to thousands of bike fans at the Motorcycle Live Show taking place at the NEC in Birmingham in November.
Paul is in the running to win £1,000 in cash and a Nikon D7100 digital camera kit worth £1,000.
