A Bolton-le-Sands photographer is taking the art scene by storm after getting recognised by BBC presenter Chris Packham.

Cameron Baird’s black and white ‘Dramatic Silhouette’ photograph appeared on BBC Winterwatch Unsprung programme and was hailed a favourite of the presenter and naturalist.

Ever since the recognition Cameron has grabbed each opportunity to show off his passions even further.

Cameron said: “Chris Packham is a very accomplished and skilled photographer with a keen eye for detail so I felt honoured to know that my photograph was chosen as his favourite in that series.

“Photography allows me the choice of how I compose the photograph and the unique control of how to capture it.”

The young semi-professional photographer will make his debut in Lancaster when he exhibits a collection of photographs at the Judges’ Lodgings Townhouse and Gillow Museum.

‘Reflection’ will open on July 20 to September 20 and will feature landscapes, nature, wildlife and black and white photography from across the district.

Cameron, who is also a songwriter and actor, said: “It is very exciting to know that soon my own photographic work will be exhibited in such a majestic and historic building.

“You appear to have jumped into an episode of Downton Abbey...except this is real.”

Admission charges into the Museum will apply - adults £3, concessions £2 and children go free if accompanied.
