Your pic on the BBC?

Ian Ferguson, weather presenter on BBC West, has emailed us to say how impressed he is with the quality of photos club members have taken, and with a request --

"I'm always keen to use good aerial photos in my TV weather bulletins here across BBC West (covering Somerset, north Dorset, Bristol, Bath, Glos and Wilts) - especially photos showing the geography / topography of our region (I can’t use any of Devon, but can of Somerset, Somerset/Dorset border area, and Exmoor and environs) and any which include the horizon and associated weather conditions / clouds.  I always include an on-screen credit to the photographer for any photos submitted - but we ask to use the images free of charge, solely for our TV weather broadcasts made here at the BBC Bristol studios.  I also regularly use aviation photos - nice shots of arcraft, with weather as a backdrop - not least as I'm mad on aircraft!

Anyone wishing to send images for consideration can email them directly to me at the address ian.fergusson (at) bbc.co.uk making sure to note (1) the name of the photographer (2) a concise description / naming of the location shown in the image and (3) a disclaimer stating that the photographer is happy for the photo to be used as a backdrop on BBC weather bulletins.

I have to crop photos to 16:9 widescreen format, so it's important that photographers take the shots with this composition in mind.  Thus, I can't use any photos shot as portrait format and for landscape format images, inevitably some of the top and lower portions of the photo will need cropping…… so, best to keep the points of interest centrally in the photo.

Many thanks for any help."
