A husband and wife photography partnership. Paula describes herself as a “butterfly photographer” because she flits from subject to subject taking a photograph of anything that attracts her. She enjoys being out in the landscape pressing the shutter but gets particular satisfaction from seeking out abstract images in man-made and natural objects that look like landscapes. Her FRPS panel was a good example of this.
Although many of her successful images are “straight ones”, she has had particular success in exhibitions with her more creative images and says she enjoys altering reality by manipulating images in Photoshop or Corel Painter.
Guy’s favourite subject to photograph is landscape, particularly when it is illuminated by some wonderful light. Previously a darkroom worker, Guy likes to apply the darkroom approach to bringing out the best in an image by selectively adjusting contrast. He particularly enjoys a monochrome picture and generally tends towards the dramatic approach but is occasionally tempted into trying the delicate/high key technique.
