Bridport photographer Graham Wiffen is celebrating having been awarded ‘Commended’ in the 2011 Take a View Landscape Photographer of the Year competition. The image will be in this year’s Take a View book, available from 31st October, and as part of an exhibition in London at the National Theatre.


“This is the first year I have entered,” says Graham.  “So I’m chuffed to bits to have got through!”  The photograph is of mists across the iconic Colmers Hill, Symonsdbury, and captures the magical beauty of a Dorset morning.  Following his success Graham is increasingly busy, actively seeking to raise the profile of the county with his photographic work.

Charlie Waite, one of Britain’s best-loved landscape photographers and founder of Take a View, set up the Awards to provide an ongoing platform for capturing images that best symbolise our land and our times, which will stand as a record for the future.  There were many thousands of entries to the competition which is sponsored by Network Rail and supported by the Sunday Times magazine.

The sheer number of competitors in 2011 demonstrated both the beauty and variety of the UK landscape and in the South West there is no shortage of varied and dramatic scenery.  Landscapes are Graham’s passion although he is already well established as a food photographer.
