Charlie Bylicki is in the final of a photography competition which could see his image printed on bottles of gin.
A KEEN photographer has won the chance to see his picture printed on limited edition bottles of gin which will hit the shops this spring.
Charles Bylicki, of Wilcott Road, Acton, was picked for his shot of Tower Bridge in silhouette with a fountain in the foreground.
It was one of just 20 photographs chosen from more than 1,500 entries to the competition run by Beefeater Gin. They were asked to send in images which summed up the city to them.
Mr Bylicki said: “London is great for photographers. I’ve been here 10 years and I’m always finding something new. There are so many old buildings and the architecture is amazing.
“Sometimes you can't see the detail by eye from the footpath. You only see it when you zoom in with a decent camera. It's a nice feeling to win, to know someone has found your shot interesting.”
The 33-year-old works as a foreman on a building site but hopes to expand his photographic work.
Anyone interested in his photography can call him on 07828 911 967.
