Two North-east amateur photographers have an exhibition running at Inverurie’s Acorn Gallery until later this month.

Richard Schofield and Alan Harrow have been regular contributors to the gallery since the centre opened in 2008, and this will be their fifth exhibition.

Richard. from Ellon, and Alan, who’s from Inverurie, have been actively involved in raising funds for Urological Cancer Charities, including the new Da Vinci Robot recently commissioned in Aberdeen Royal Infirmary - the first robotically-assisted surgery system in Scotland.

Both are enthusiastic photographers who love nothing better than embarking on a “grand day out” visiting different landscapes and seascapes around the North-east.

This year’s exhibition is allowing them to explore different subject matter and the pair have endeavoured to show some techniques used when photographing flowers and displaying them to best effect.

Alan, a volunteer at the Acorn Centre, has just returned from Iceland with Herald photographer Paul Douglas and hopes to add some iconic images from the Land of Ice and Fire during the exhibition.

The showcase will run until October 26 and the centre is open from 10am until 4pm from Tuesday to Saturday.
