Peter Walmsley, “It all began with a chemistry course”

Peter Walmsley, “It all began with a chemistry course”

Peter Walmsley is a very active UK-based photographer. His passion for photography started back in school, during a chemistry extra-curricular course on film and print processing, “quite a few years ago now”. He  hasn’t stopped since then. Some of his pictures can be found on our image usage webiste www.photographerlondon.com. That course about film must have been really interesting… Definitely. Feeding film onto a spiral in the dark and later creating prints from an enlarger was a fascinating process and one from which my bedroom carpet suffered occasionally from spilt chemicals. Some years later my first SLR Russian Zenit (built like a tank!) was superseded by a Pentax ME Super: a fairly classic route for many. And there it stayed for quite a few years until digital came along and I plumped for a Sony bridge camera – the DSC 717 in which the body rotates around a most impressive Carl Zeiss lens. That camera also lasted me about 5 years but as technology and interest continued to increase,...

“I Still Love My Job After 30 Years”, Howard Kingsnorth

“I Still Love My Job After 30 Years”, Howard Kingsnorth

Howard Kingsnorth has been a professional photographer for over 25 years. He opened up the way for cool East London at a time when East London wasn’t cool at all. He’s been working in commercials and advertising field, for some of the most famous agencies in the industry. I met him in his studio in Shoreditch, an old-fashioned brick building covered in mural paintings which will be demolished in 2 years’ time to make space for new luxury flats. How did you start taking pictures? My uncle was interested in photography and showed me some of his pictures when I was young, he also had a darkroom, I was hooked. I loved old pictures, I love looking at things, that’s why I bought my first camera at 12. It was a second-hand camera, a Kodak 127, actually. I’ve never stopped since then. How did you decide to become a professional? Where did you study? It seemed like an impossible dream, I didn’t know anyone who really knew how to...

Jeffrey Robb: Photographer, Painter or Sculptor?

Jeffrey Robb: Photographer, Painter or Sculptor?

Jeff Robb’s artwork has no boundaries. Pioneer of contemporary holography, this eclectic artist explores the physical and metaphysical forces of our world and its multiversal reality. Through his moving 3d images, he not only creates objects of beauty but translates into art the awareness that the visible implies the existence of the invisible, one world implies the existence of another world or, maybe, many others. He leads the viewer into a hypnotic transitional state between the unexplored territories of the physical world and the unknown beyond that. Ranging from floating bodies to landscape paintings, his holographic works are unique pieces of art appreciated and exhibited all around the world, part of prestigious collections, such as the Victoria and AlbertMuseum in London and the GettyMuseum in Los Angeles. I was fortunate enough to meet him at his home and spend an hour with him in friendly conversation about his work and some of the concepts behind his creations. Could you describe for us your artistic path, which was the first...
