A day of bespoke one-to-one tutoring. Photographer to be confirmed.
We work with some amazing companies and this year we are pleased to announce that Canon have offered one of their A2 printers as part of the FPOTY prize fund. We can not thank them enough for their generosity and support.
We have been running three Canon wide format printers for the last four years and have always been blown away with not only the quality of the prints but the quality of the machines themselves.
In 2016 we became a Canon registered partner for their wide format printers. If you have any questions regarding Canon printers please contact one of the Fotospeed team.
What an amazing and unique prize to win.

10th June - Results
|Lots of technique has been used to produce this stunning image by @maxitup. We love the contrast of light on the boats coupled with the exposure of the milky way, the great composition just adds to the overall look.|
|A beautiful shot of poppies which is bold yet subtle from @Emily_Endean. The paired down look of the sunset/rise in the background contrasts with the bright red of the soft petalled flowers in the foreground, this is enhanced by a great use of depth of field.|
|We love the colours and the story telling of this image by @merseamillsy, the silhouetted soldiers evoke a feeling of the past and the honour and sacrifice of these men. Good composition and the reflected symmetry in the water adds to the emotion from this piece.|
|We particularly like the composition of the parachute and the plane of @Doodler_Bug very poignant image. The lovely muted colours are reminiscent of the hand printed photographs of this era.|
Such a varied top 4 and we were very torn between them, as to which would be the winner this week, so we looked at the big print and this image looked spectacular printed. The winning image will be printed on Platimun Baryta, this will enhance the depth of the black silhouettes and reflections but will also keep the beautiful colours of the sunset punchy.
Every week we will now be doing 15% off our paper of choice, you can purchase Platinum Baryta here and enter code FSPB15 at checkout to get your 15% off.
