A year ago in February, we lost our dear friend Matt Leach in very sad circumstances. Matt was an amazing photographer and he always encouraged us to to pick up a camera in the ‘Aperture’ competitions he regularly organised in the studio. To mark the anniversary of his death, we held a FITCH Aperture in his memory, something we will continue to do every year in February.

The theme was ‘The Great Outdoors’ and Matt’s Mum and partner Paul were invited to be our honoured judges. Congratulations to Tim for winning Editor’s Choice, Vanessa who was chosen as the Winning Entry and to Gavin, who got the most votes from the studio for Peoples Choice!

There was a huge number of entries and the standard all round was amazing! Well done everyone! Matt would be proud.
