Devon man reaches national photography final

Comments (0)

A DEVON man has been selected as the UK’s finalist in the Avis national photography competition.

Marc Arstall, from Exeter, beat off competition from 597 other entrants from across the UK and will now go head-to-head with a finalist from France for the overall title.

Marc, who designs engines for Rolls Royce, said: “I’m thrilled to have been chosen as a UK finalist for the Avis I Can’t Believe My Eyes competition – I’ve never actually entered one before.

“I actually took that photo on a really cloudy, grey day, but we got to that point in the route and the sun suddenly came out – it was so breath-taking that I had to stop and capture it.”

His photo of winding roads and grassy mountains on the iconic Route 38 in Northern Argentina was taken whilst driving with his wife during a honeymoon sabbatical and was picked out by Getty Images as reflecting the true ‘beauty in the journey’.

Lauren Catten, Art Director at Getty Images said: “We really struggled to narrow down our favourite images but in the end, Marc’s photograph stood out because it truly showed the beauty of the journey as well as impressive skill from a photography perspective.”

The overall winner will not only receive a luxury holiday from British Airways and car rental from Avis, but will also see their photo appear in a future Avis advertising campaign, plus become a feature within the I Can’t Believe My Eyes short film, putting one talented travel photographer truly on the map.

The public have until June 16 to vote for their favourite photo and can do so at www.icantbelievemyeyes.co.uk .
