Photography students from the Helensburgh Learning Centre are hosting an exhibition to raise funds for Helensburgh and Lomond Autism.

The students from Argyll College's Introduction to Digital Photography class have been preparing for this display for months.

Argyll College Helensburgh’s Photography tutor, Kath Polley told the Advertiser: “During the first class I told the students that they were to have an exhibition at the end and I don’t think they quite believed it.

"They tackled the course with enthusiasm though and by the end, everyone had produced work to be proud of.

"The theme of the course was to consider the People, Places and Things that were important to each of them as well as learning about some of the technical aspects of photography, making the final exhibition both a kind of collective self-portrait and a demonstration of skills learned."

Kath thanked all the local business who have helped make the exhibition possible, including PJ's Kitchen who will be supplying the wine to help the night go with a swing and Picture It! Scotland for donating prints.

The exhibition will be displayed in the Kirkmichael Community Centre and the opening night will take place on Wednesday, August 8 from 7-9pm. It will also be open on Thursday 9 and Friday 10 from 9am-5pm.

Entry is free, but visitors are being encouraged to make a £1 donation for a chance to win their favourite print in the People's Choice Competition.
