Cricklade based photographer Ian Plested has scooped three prizes in the Great Western Region Portrait Awards of the Master Photographers Association.
The 1st award was for 1st & 3rd Places in the pets award.
The 2nd award was given for the best under 5's portrait. The 3rd award was the Licentiate award. This was given to the photographer who produced the best overall photograph from all categories on the day.
The annual competition is open to all MPA Professional Photographers in the region.
Judging on the day was top UK photographer Hossain Mahdavi (Hoss) who could not fault the photograph for the under 5's despite trying. The same photograph will now be entered into the national competition.
The studio in Cricklade was opened in July last year where Ian concentrates on Wedding & Portrait photography.
