A SNAPPER from Hall Green has received an unusual prize for his photography skills whilst taking part in the Positively Birmingham Walking Tour.

Trevor Harker teamed up with the walking tour outside Birmingham City Library and visited a long-list of historical sites across the city – including Symphony Hall, Gas Street Basin and the Hall of Remembrance.

The group were given the opportunity to take pictures on the tour and enter in a photo competition judged by city landscape photographer.

The 68-year old, who is an amateur photographer, won first place for his photograph of the Golden Boys statue outside the House of Sport in Broad Street.

He received an Acme Thunderer Whistle – identical to the whistle used in the 1966 World Cup – for his exceptional photography skills and eye for detail.

Speaking to the paper, Trevor said:”I was blown away when I found out I had been selected as the winner by Johnathan Berg.

“I feel privileged to have received the whistle and it has spurred me on to pick up my camera more.

“It was a real eye-opener and has inspired me and my wife to explore of of the city.”
