Photography Exhbition 2018 

Back-lighting of nature on bright sunny days or the evening light – that’s when you will find me with my camera (Canon G11) holding my breath to capture the magic moments you see below. This year I will be exhibiting my Nature’s Light Boxes, highlighting the detail in leaves we often pass by. The exhibition prints have been  printed by Old Forest Arts, Hay on Wye,  using Lucia EX Archival pigment on fine art  acids free 255gsm Dapple Art Paper, lightfast guarantee for 100 years. Framed by Brown Hen Framing, New Radnor, creating the light box effect and using non-reflective true-vue glass.

It was photography 17 years ago which started me back onto my creative journey, since my school days. I went to Hereford College of Arts, where I discovered one of my creative passions for photography and light.
