Waterford Beach Photo Makes Tim Our July Winner

Waterford Beach Photo Makes Tim Our July Winner

Tim Carey of Bray-based The Travel Boutique is our July winner in the ITTN+EMIRATES Travel Photographer of the Year competition with his photo entitled: Early Morning, Kilfarrasy Beach, Waterford. Tim was presented with his €200 voucher by Lisa Rabbitte, Sales Executive Leisure Sales – Dublin and Connaught, Emirates.

Tim took his photo with a Sony A58 camera in June 2016. He told ITTN: “I am absolutely delighted to be a finalist again, having been the wild card winner last year. The competition is great fun, the overall standard is very high this year, and it is great to see that members of the trade are taking part and also paying more attention to composition.

“I had seen photos of Kilfarrasy Beach on the Internet but had never been, so I recently visited with my two children and was up at 6am with my camera and tripod and shot it at quick speed.”
