Photographer shortlisted for award
11:14am Tuesday 29th October 2013 in News
A WEDDING photographer from Chester-le-Street has been shortlisted for a national award.
Leighton Bainbridge, founder of Leighton Bainbridge Photography is in the final ten in the hitched.co.uk Breakthrough Awards.
Mr Bainbridge, a full-time welder and fabricator as well as a wedding photographer, set up his photography business last year after his own wedding.
He studied at the Photography Institute to gain the qualifications needed.
The hitched.co.uk Breakthrough Awards (HBAs) are run by the wedding website, hitched.co.uk to recognise new talent in the wedding industry.
Mr Bainbridge said: “I started my business as I hate being stuck in the factory and I’ve always wanted to be my own boss.
“It makes it worse when I have to go back there on a Monday after I have been shooting weddings all weekend, I feel like Jekyll and Hyde.”
