Guild member Kim Shaw from Staffordshire has been selected from over 500 hopefuls to reach the last 12 in a National competition to win a years' worth of photography training with Mark Cleghorn of PhotoTraining4u.

Kim decided on a career change and started her own photography business approximately a year ago, a few years after her passion for the craft developed, and she joined the Guild in January this year to help her progress her skills and develop her business.

She has been set various tasks in this pre-final stage and the best 5 will go through to the final. One of her tasks is to get as many people as possible to "like" her Facebook page, so if you use Facebook then please take a look. We're sure you'll like what you see...Good Luck Kim!
