A photographer from Aberdeenshire is preparing for his first exhibition at Peterhead’s Arcaro Arts.

Mark Williams said: “I am very nervous as I have never had my work out on display to the public before.

“I have been an enthusiastic amateur photographer for 30 years, I have never taken a photography course or classes.

“Whenever I get the opportunity to take a photo I make the most of it.

“It has been a good hobby for many years and these days anyone can take a photo on their mobile phones, so what I hope is that people will see what they can do if they go out and get some good shots.”

Mark’s work is mostly landscape photography and he told the Buchanie that there is something quite unique about the North-east: ”The exhibition focuses on shadows and light, with a study on natural light.

“There are different light effects in Peterhead and up towards the West so I have tried to capture that and the different colours we see.

“I’ve kept the images in my exhibition local so people will recognise most of them.”

He added: “I am very lucky to have friends who will let me exhibit my work.

“I knew Melissa and she encouraged me to set up an exhibition so I would like to thank her for hosting it.”

You can see Mark’s work at Arcaro Arts from Saturday, July 12 to Friday, July 25.
