Here at Williamson Carson we’ve been serving the photography community since 1986. It’s incredibly important to us that we give back to the industry, to our community. As an industry we’ve faced many challenges over the years, we understand all too well how important it is to support each other through the ups and the downs that life throws at us. Things are tougher than ever for emerging photographers, we are very proud to sponsor the upcoming LPA Futures competition. 

LPA Futures is a biennial competition for emerging commercial photographers aiming to kick start their career. The judging panel of industry experts will select 3 photographers who win that all important representation as part of LPA Futures’ 2 year programme. They’ll also be the lucky recipients of nearly £10,000 of prizes. This kind of support and promotion has never been so crucial for the next generation of commercial photographers.
