Motherwell’s Angie Isac received recognition at the British Institute of Professional Photography (BIPP) Scottish Region Awards.

Her skills were lauded as she took second place in both the open category and press & PR with enthusiasm for photojournalism/documentary.

During her time at Stevenson College in Edinburgh Angie developed an affinity with sports photography, eventually earning a degree with distinction.

Despite lacking control over the environments she works in, she has always endeavored to capture the emotion present in the event.

The most poignant testimonial her work has received was ‘Angie, there is life in your photos’.

Angie said “It was an honour to be recognised as a professional in the BIPP Scottish Region Awards this year, receiving two second places.

“I try to challenge myself by photographing all types of sports.

“I enjoy getting out of my comfort zone, so I’m really looking forward to covering some of the action at the Commonwealth Games.

“Who knows, maybe I can go one step better and win one of the categories with the BIPP.

BIPP fellow Gerry Coe added: “Myself and fellow judges were in almost complete agreement on our shortlisted images.

“The professional categories were really excellent and some of the images just missed out on the top slot by a very small amount.

“It is the attention to the small details that can determine what image gets the number one slot.”
