Wilkinson Cameras Announces First Ambassador Line Up

Wilkinson Cameras – the North West’s leading independent camera retailer – has announced that it is partnering with four professional photographers to host a series of inspiring events, talks and more, over the coming year.

The team of pro partners features award winning wildlife photographer Kevin Morgans, esteemed garden photographer Clive Nichols, Digital Splash Photographer of the Year James Rushforth and astro photographer and vlogging sensation, Alyn Wallace.

The photographers will be sharing their insights, experiences and live adventures over the coming months – as well as hosting events and photography workshops, working with the Wilki team.

Alex Wilkinson, Director at Wilkinson Cameras said:

‘At Wilkinson Cameras, we’re passionate about the people behind the image, not just about the equipment that helps to create it. We hope to be able to build strong relationships with talented and passionate photographers and videographers. ‘The aim is not just to promote the Wilkinson Cameras brand, but also support established or up and coming photographers, promote photography as a whole and hopefully encourage and inspire others on their own creative journeys.’

Here’s a brief summary of each photographer – keep an eye on the Wilkinson Cameras blog for full interviews, details of talks, events and more over the next few months.  We’ll also be handing over the reins on the Wilki social media platforms, so if you’ve got a burning question for any of the guys, you’ll have your chance to pick their expert brains very soon!
