I’m delighted to announce that PAGB Group member David Harris has been awarded the distinction of CPAGB from the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain. This is a difficult distinction to achieve and requires a very high standard of photography. We are all familiar with David’s beautiful nature images, his award is very well deserved.
Well done David.
