Young photographer holding first exhibition


A 13-year-old photographer from Itchingfield has thanked his art teacher before holding his first exhibition.

Pennthorpe School pupil Monty Marlow’s work will be on display at his dad’s office in Seymours Estate Agents in Cranleigh High Street over the Easter school holiday from 4pm today (Thursday March 24).



Monty, who has been commissioned to take photos of Horsham Gymnastics Centre in the Pavilions, said: “I would give anything to be a photographer, it’s something I’ve looked forward to and really wanted to be sever since I was little.

“The exhibition is very important because making your name in photography is what’s going to make you successful.”

Monty spoke of his passion for wildlife photography. He said his art teacher Nick Perry was a keen photographer who had been a ‘real help and inspiration’.

Monty said: “I love the freedom of it and the feel that you get.



“I know a lot of people think photography is just clicking a button but it’s not - there’s so much more to it and I love showing it and I think my passion for wildlife comes across in it.”

Monty has included photos of gymnasts in his exhibition to show progression in his craft.

He said his work will be on display over the Easter break.

He will be there to show people his work at 5.30pm today.
