A former photography student at the College of North West London has had a photo he took of an iconic attraction win a national newspaper competition.
Martin Evans, 22, pictured, from Neasden, beat thousands of other hopeful photographers to scoop The Sun’s coveted landscape photographer of the year prize thanks to his stunning snap of the London Eye.
Mr Evans said: “It is a strange but brilliant feeling to see one of your photos used for the first time in such a well known newspaper.
“I could not believe it at first, but now it has sunk in I feel proud and have an even greater drive to produce more photos.
“I want to make a career out of photography, and most importantly, I want my work to be viewed by as many people as possible.”
Thanking his lecturers at the CNWL, which has campuses in Willesden and Wembley, Mr Evans said: “I genuinely could not have got to where I am without the support of my teachers at the college.”
