Jillian Lee -
The Busy Bee from Naples Florida

Jillian Lee has a knack for creating a slightly surrealistic tone within her work,  with rich tones and manipulations which capture your attention. I love the ease with which she asks the viewer to take her journey through the lens. I did this and found myself wrapped up in the sumptuous colours and compositions evident in this selection we are showing this week.

A Recce in Snow Covered Glencoe

Getting snowed under at work is a challenge, but getting snowed in because of unexpected snow in the UK gave my and my assistant a chance to try something a little different and although we could get perfect pictures for our client, this video documents our funny moments whilst we nearly get cut off on the snow road.

Street Photography & iPhone

You may not find anyone worth shooting, but this is an easy way to get started. It shouldn’t be terrifying, and you will find that even while standing very close to your subjects, you can take their pictures without arousing suspicion. You can employ the same techniques at street fairs or parades.

Kieron Beard

Kieron Beard – The Englishman abroad
Kieron is a British photographer who has been living in France and working in Switzerland since 1998. It only took a decade at the fire brigade, multiple environmental science degrees and a dozen accounting jobs for me to realise photography was probably alright.

Angelina Bertand

A sense of freedom and expression in her work and the unconstrained look to her photographs which to the eye, is refreshing and more so as her images capture the essence of beauty with strong, rich blacks and warm mid-tones reminiscent of the great Agfa papers I used to work within the darkroom.

Angelica Stenvinkel -
