A talented Advertiser photographer has caught the eye of judges after being shortlisted in two photographic competitions.
Ian Longthorne is a finalist in both the 'Spirit of the Games' and 'Glasgow Landmarks' photographic competitions.
The 43-year-old's snap of players at Maidenhead Rugby Club (left), in Braywick Road, beat about 2,400 images to be chosen as one of the 24 finalists in the Spirit of the Games contest.
The image is set to go on display at the R K Burt Gallery, in London, at the end of November.
The competition was organised by the Royal Photographic Society.
"I am really surprised and pleased to have got this far," said Ian.
