London teenager wins landscape photographer of the year - a month after taking up photography
11th November 2014

Sam explains how he got the shot after “messing about” taking photos of his family after going to visit a site his grandfather suggested. Sam explains he took three hundred shots before he found the one he liked - and all at the cost of his mum. 

Founder of the award and the country’s top landscape photographer, Charlie Waite, explains why the “timeless quality” Sam’s black and white image appealed to him and talks through the “deeply painful” process of deciding which photograph would emerge as the winner. 

Waite also talks through some of the other images featured in the competition.
