My bid to find the couple in Teesdale
After the photo was edited I thought it would be great to try and find the couple who was in the photo, I thought this might be a very hard task as I could only see the back of them on the photo. So I put the image on Facebook and asked for help sharing the photo to see if I could find the couple. I asked every photographer I know to share it too. After over 1000 shares on Facebook, I finally got a message from The guy in the photos mum who had spotted it and reached out to me, It turns out her mum actually lives in Doncaster which amazed me as I took this photo 3 hours away from my house.
When I shared my photo I said if I found them I would give them a free canvas of the photo for them. In the meantime, while I was getting contact details for the couple I had Newcastle’s main radio station call me as they wanted to run a story on my photo, I was over the moon with this news and just shows you the power of social media. I did eventually get the couples details and sent them a free canvas as promised and here is a picture they sent me when they received it.
If you get time I’d love for you to take a look through my landscape photography portfolio here.
