6Pack Darkroom Contest
Clocks + Colours has always been a big supporter of local artists and their craft. We are dedicated to promoting the talent of our community and what better way than to showcase all the amazing photography skills through a contest!
We launched our first 6Pack Darkroom Photography Contest mid October and hosted a fan vote over Instagram to determine our champion. Thank you to everyone who submitted, to our Top 8, and all of our community who voted.
1st Place: Felix Collier
What is your name and where are you from?
Felix Collier - I’m from Surrey, UK.
Can you tell us a little about your entry?
The picture was taken on the summit of Ben Nevis, I’d stopped to catch my breath for a moment and this huge raven landed about 10ft away, stared at me for a second and then flew off, almost as if he wanted his picture taken!
Can you tell us a little bit about your photography work?
My photography work is primarily wildlife & nature, which is a huge passion for me. I use it to educate others about the animals with interesting facts and also raise awareness of the environmental issues that they are facing.
I donate 25% of the profits from my sales to try and help combat these issues, we’ve all got to do as much as we can. If someone purchases a print from me, they get a lovely handmade wall piece for their home and a struggling environmental organization gets a donation to help continue their work, win win. That’s what it’s all about for me, I take from nothing but pictures and give back everything I can in return, to help out natural world flourish again.
