Polina Plotnikova - "Starting from a blank canvas"

They say that a photographer is either a picture taker, or a picture maker…and Polina believes that she is firmly in the picture maker’s club. While fully appreciating the "what you see is what you get" approach, she is much more interested in chasing an ever-elusive image that appears in her mind's eye, an image that conveys her feelings and emotions, rather than remains a mere statement of fact. Her favourite photography subjects are: flowers, still life, and also capturing her impressions when travelling.
She has an FRPS and an EFIAP photography distinctions and a number of photographic awards, including eight Gold and Silver Gilt medals at the RHS photography competitions, category winner of Food Photographer of The Year competition, various distinctions at each of the International Garden Photographer of The Year competitions, and multiple medals and distinctions awarded by various Photography Salons.
Here's a link to Polina’s website for more information about her and also where you can view some stunning images in her gallery: https://www.polinaplotnikova.com/ .

Gavin Ritchie - "Landscapes & Self Projects"

 Gavin first discovered his love for photography at just 14 with the help of his dad. It was through photography that he realised his passion for the landscape around him, in particular the West coast of Scotland and the Trossachs National Park.

In 2017 he moved to Perth to begin a new phase in his life and career. He has fallen in love completely with the beauty and diversity of the Perthshire landscape. No other place in the country has the same blend of rolling hills and high mountains, rivers and lochs, deep glens, ancient woodlands and vast barren moors. He’s spent the last few years getting to know the area more intimately and find his own favourite locations in such an underappreciated part of the country.

He now leads a series of landscape photography workshops Scotland and Highland Perthshire for people of all experience and skill. Here’s a link to Gavin’s website if you would like to see some examples of his work: https://www.gavinritchie.co.uk/ .
