There will also be an opportunity for some attending businesses to have products professionally photographed free of charge by David Moses.  These photographs would be used by Dumfries and Galloway Council and other partners, such as VisitScotland, to help promote food and drink in the region, and the photos would also be made available to the respective businesses for their own use.  Please advise whether you would like your products to be considered for this studio photography.
