Doubling Up: Local photographer Michéla Griffith joins Peak District Artisans and is commended in “Landscape Photographer of the Year 2013”

Longnor-based photographer Michéla Griffith has two reasons to celebrate this month. She has received a commendation in the “Landscape Photographer of the Year 2013” competition for one of her “Streamscapes” and has been accepted as a new member of the Peak District Artisans.

The results of the prestigious competition were announced last week and a print of her image “Ice on Rust” will be exhibited at the awards show at the National Theatre in London which opens on December 7th and runs until February 8th 2014.

The image will also feature in the Awards book, “Landscape Photographer of the Year Collection 7”, by AA Publishing, which is published on October 31.

The past year has seen a change in direction for Michéla‘s photography as she has worked on the “Streamscapes” – drawing inspiration from the River Dove and its tributary streams.

Michéla said: “I have combined my early love of drawing and painting with a long-standing passion for photographing the landscape.  My Streamscapes turn incidental details into beautiful fine art prints that are sometimes mistaken for paintings.”

Featured earlier this year in Derbyshire’s Artsbeat magazine, Michéla has now built up a sizeable portfolio and she is delighted to have been accepted by Peak District Artisans.

“I am looking forward to taking part in their events and exhibiting my work more widely over the next year,” she added.
