Dave Sumner – About Dave’s photography

Dave is a photography judge and he provides judging services via correspondence for clubs that are remote and find it hard to get judges out to their clubs.

Because he doesn’t physically visit the club in person, he provides the club with a slideshow of his work which they play on the night. Dave presents one of those slideshows.
