SNAPPING some night-time scenes earned an amateur photographer from St Albans a spot at a David Bailey exhibition.

Craig Shepheard, 41, of Townsend Drive, won a competition last month for a new Nokia camera phone and, as part of his prize, he was commissioned to take photos of night-time activity to form part of a photography exhibition in London.

The exhibition, Alive at Night, was commissioned by Nokia and was designed to promote the new N86 phone 8MP camera phone. Mr Bailey's photos, all of which were taken on the mobile phone, formed the main part of the exhibition at the Old Dairy near Russell Square last month.

Among the photos Craig showed at the exhibition were one of a railway worker on a late-night shift at St Albans station and others of his work colleagues, who often survey buildings at night-time.

Craig, an engineer consultant, said that it was an honour to have his work shown at the exhibition: "I've been interested in photography ever since the age of 14 and have become more serious about it recently. This competition couldn't have come at a better time and I'm proud of my achievement."
