6:20pm Thursday 8th August 2013 in News
CALDICOT photographer Tracey Clements has been named the Master Photographers Association’s (MPA) pet photographer of the year for Wales.
She triumphed with a shot of two spaniels named Jake and Jason, who are owned by Sylvia Rose.
Ms Clements said: “They were bought into the studio when they were just months old. They were extremely boisterous but responded well to the sounds which I use to gain their attention, and we ended up with many more images than I think Sylvia thought we would get. I love the image that won because it shows their cheeky character.”
The judging was held at The Grove Golf Club in Porthcawl and was judged by Hertford photographer and MPA president Hoss Mahdavi who commented on the high standard of professional photography in Wales.
Ms Clements works in her family business, Wye Valley Studios in Caldicot.
