The long summer days may feel like a distant memory, but the sun is still shining in the Swoffers office thanks to the winner of this year’s Snap Your Summer competition.
Matthew Mollet’s image of his daughter Georgie enjoying the beach at Port Soif was chosen by the judges as they felt it really captured what’s memorable about a Guernsey summer.
‘We felt that the image showed a real innocence and enjoyment of a perfect day at the beach in Guernsey,’ said Swoffers professional photographer and judge, Matt Le Page.
‘It wasn’t posed or forced and is just a lovely, genuine image.’
The photograph features Georgie, who turns three in December, totally focused on making her sandcastles with the beautiful azure sea in the background. Matthew shot the image on his Sony A6000.
‘I couldn’t believe it when I got the email to say I’d won,’ says Matthew.
‘I am interested in photography as a hobby and am particularly keen on documenting the kids as they grow up. Both my daughters just love the beach.’
Matt wins a canvas print of his winning photograph and £750 which he says he will spend on his family.
