This exhibition - which ran from the 11th to the 31st 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 also exhibited a few prints of people taking part in or enjoying the event. Additionally, there was a display of over 900 of my digital images from the last 5 years as a slide show. These are now on screen in "Shirls Shakes" of Barnard Castle
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 were 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 were for sale through the shop - a full range of my greeting cards are permantely on sale in the the Witham Hall shop.
Many thanks for visiting and taking the time to browse.
For people who were 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!!
