Simon Sperry was deemed to have taken the best shot during the Pentax Ricoh GR Experience Day, beating fellow photographers Bruce Marshall, Karl Da Silva, Bill Richardson and Andre Bogaert.

The group (pictured below) were challenged to take wideangle photos on the Southbank – with AP Editor Damien Demolder giving them tips on the best locations and techniques.

Afterwards Bruce Marshall said: ‘I really enjoyed the experience. We were lucky to get such a cracking day to ramble around a part of London I don’t know very well.’

The five photographers, who were each using a Pentax Ricoh GR, had won the chance to take part by winning an earlier wideangle photo competition, run on the AP website.

The Pentax Ricoh GR Experience Day took place last week.
