The Photographer of the Year Award 2017 goes unequivocally to French photographer Laurent Guigue for his lovely image of a tranquil Scottish loch mirroring the sky and trees.
Laurent Guigue joined us on two workshops in 2017 – Iceland and Scotland – and received the Photographer of the Month Award in December 2017 with his Scottish landscape. He is from Lambersart in Northern France and especially interested in photographing landscapes. See more of his images here.
On winning, Laurent Guigue wrote:
“I’m so happy: This is the first time that I get rewarded for an “artistic work”. Wow! Many thanks to the voters!”
Better Moments founder and CEO Christian Nørgaard comments:
“Creating a dramatic and beautiful stillness in a landscape image is a difficult art. As it is to make the motif feel intense and interesting. With his classical composition Laurent Guigue has created a masterpiece where the warm autumn colours of the foreground form a natural frame around the reflections that fade so beautifully into the unending background.”
A big congratulations to Laurent Guigue on this well-deserved award. The top 3 winners will receive a beautiful high-quality print of their award-winning photo, printed by our partner, Illux.
