Wilkinson Cameras Announces First Ambassador Lineup
We are very excited to officially announce that we have now partnered with four professional photographers to host a series of inspiring events, talks and more, over the coming year.
The team of pro partners features award winning wildlife photographer Kevin Morgans, esteemed garden photographer Clive Nichols, Digital Splash Photographer of the Year 2018 James Rushforth and astro-photographer and vlogging sensation, Alyn Wallace.
The photographers will be sharing their insights, experiences and live adventures over the coming months – as well as hosting events and photography workshops, working with the Wilkinson Cameras team.
Alex Wilkinson, Director at Wilkinson Cameras said:
‘At Wilkinson Cameras, we’re passionate about the people behind the image, not just about the equipment that helps to create it. We hope to be able to build strong relationships with talented and passionate photographers and videographers.
‘The aim is not just to promote the Wilkinson Cameras brand, but also support established or up and coming photographers, promote photography as a whole and hopefully encourage and inspire others on their own creative journeys.’
Alex was keen to work alongside carefully selected photographers and came up with the initial idea for the new Ambassador Programme. She’s also hoping to involve the talented members of the Wilkinson Cameras store teams with features from Staff Ambassadors too!
Keep coming back to the blog, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and make sure you sign up to the newsletter to find out about upcoming ambassador, events, interviews and more over the next few months. We’ll also be handing over the reins on the Wilkinson Cameras social media platforms with ambassador takeover weeks. This will be your chance to ask them any questions you have and also see more of their work.

Alyn Wallace is a self-taught landscape astrophotographer from South Wales whose work has been featured by the likes of NASA, National Geographic, and BBC Earth. With a burning passion for capturing the night sky wonders, Alyn left his engineering career behind to pursue his quest to find the darkest skies and most otherworldly locations.
Alyn was recently the feature of the BBC Documentary ‘Moonshot’, a documentary that uncovers the links between Wales and the Moon, as he set out to capture the perfect shot to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon landings.
Alyn now continues to uncover unique places to run his group workshops and share his knowledge and passion for all the night sky wonders whilst raising awareness to the issues caused by the increasing problem of light pollution, not just for his personal love of astrophotography but also for the negative impacts on humans and wildlife.
