A group of Galloway photographers has joined forces to promote its different styles of work by hosting a charity exhibition next week.

The Galloway Photographic Collective has teamed up with the Dumfries and Galloway Befriending Project to host a charity raffle and exhibition launch on Thursday 13 November at The Workshop Gallery in Castle Douglas. 

The Collective uses a range of disciplines including traditional landscape photography, wedding and portrait photography, editorial, wildlife, and staged narrative and fantasy photography. These members are Giles and Lynne Atkinson, Kim Ayres, Tom Langlands, Roger Lever, David Moses and Allan Wright.

The event will offer an opportunity to hear the seven members of the Collective give a short presentation as well as view their latest photography exhibition.

To complement the chosen charity, the exhibition is taking on the theme of friendship, with each photographer offering their own unique interpretation.

There will be a chance to win top quality prizes in the raffle, including framed prints, portrait sessions and limited edition prints. These prizes will be announced on the GPC Facebook & Twitter pages in the lead up to the event. All profit made from the sale of raffle tickets will go to the D&G Befriending Project, a charity which enriches young lives by offering mentoring opportunities throughout the region.

Raffle tickets will cost £1 each and can be purchased online as well as in a range of outlets including The Whitehouse Gallery in Kirkcudbright or A&D Livingston’s in Castle Douglas. Tickets can also be purchased on the night.
