I was fourteen when I bought my first camera, a Box Brownie from Woolworths. The Lake District, I knew and loved so profoundly as a boy, was to be reimagined for the rest of my life, wherever I was. Beauty became everywhere in the everyday.Peter Walker, 2021
The pictures I take of the everyday are visualised entirely ‘in the camera’; retouching and cropping are kept to a minimum. I want to feature the ordinary as extraordinary.
My images are printed and finished to the highest international standards using only premium quality photographic papers together with professional finishing-quality craftsmanship, which includes mounting prints on an aluminium sheet. I offer some of the ways my images can be presented in this website. If you should like one of my images framed to your own liking, please contact Lindsay, my partner, on email@example.com who shall be pleased to help.
Upon purchase, a separate label providing provenance details, will be supplied.
My images are printed on the highest quality photographic paper, professionally mounted and framed to international standards. The images are available as an unmounted print, canvas mounted on a stretched frame, and in two sizes of floating frame ‘Exhibition’ and ‘Classic’. If you want a different framing option, we shall be pleased to provide a quote for bespoke framing. Please email us with details, to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Perhaps there is a femininity here. Leaves delicately caught on the surface of the pond. A stillness that begs reflection.Series One
Although not obvious in the camera lens, images present themselves to be captured, endless in their variety and form. Nature telling us that we need to ‘take notice’, perhaps of its great artistry.Series One
The freshness of the blue sky, the white of the Birch trees. This inverted image somehow enhances the abstraction while keeping it dynamic and energetic in its lifeform.Series One
The play of light from the trees, an image caught in the camera that filled my heart with joy. I cropped the image slightly and increased the contrast but otherwise the image is as taken.Series One
An artist’s canvas; I see a moment in time like no other. A ballet of dancing shapes, and patterns; fleeting yet constant in its narrative – its beauty is beguiling, catch me if you can!Series One
Hidden in the folds of the river, I was astonished to experience these bewildering patterns. Leaves floating atop, released to float downstream on a new journey.Series One
The glass surface of the water as it cascades over a man-made waterfall gives the image a surreal appearance. A fast shutter speed has frozen the moment, while also capturing a hint of colour. The water performs like it is wearing its best coat.Series One
I began to realise that working with digital material gave me instant feedback. The reflections in a river are not what they seem. All the elements of the Dove Dale landscape can be revealed in an instant.Series One
I came across this scene quite by accident, dropping down to the river Dove through the woods one winter’s day. I did not expect to experience the rawness of winter as depicted in this scene.Series One
Late Summer Leaves
A transitional moment in our changing seasons, when the green leaves of summer fade into retirement, and the glory of autumn arrives.
