This exhibition - which opened on the 11th May 2015 - has, as the title suggests, wildlife photographs from various locations, both home and abroad, as the largest genre exhibited and seeks to show the insects, birds and animals in various forms of behaviour or typical postures.
Having taken photographs at the annual Barnard Castle Meet for several years I am showing a few prints of people taking part in or enjoying the event. Additionally, there is a display of over 900 of my digital images from the last 5 years as a slide show.
A small selection of the shots I have been fortunate to be able to photograph at some of The Castle Players productions at the Bowes Museum as well as musicians at various concerts and “open mic” events are also included along with some of my “Pet Portraits” and “Landscapes”.
As can be seen from the images, I prefer to work outside of a studio and capture people or pets being themselves in their environment – to me, this gives a more realistic and memorable image to look back on in the years to come.
I maintain complete control of the production by processing the images myself (Photoshop) and doing very little more than some cropping, adjusting contrast and sharpening for printing onto heavyweight paper using archival quality inks.
All prints, large and small, plus a range of cards are for sale through the shop.
Should you have any questions about any of the images or wish to discuss having a different size or frame etc, please ask me. I plan to be in attendance at the exhibition each day. Opening times are Monday and Wednesday to Saturday from 10am to 4pm each day. It is scheduled to finish on the 1st June 2015.
Many thanks for visiting and taking the time to browse.
For people who are unable to see the exhibition, this link shows the images exhibited - though not always in the grouping at the exhibition - and, regrettably in these days of digital downloading, all are watermarked to make copying and using more of a problem!!
