Kris is an award winning professional photographer with over thirty years’ experience. He runs his own photography business, Southern Scenic Photography, specialising in atmospheric land and seascapes, product and commercial photography. He teaches photography workshops and tuition in RAW developing and Photoshop as well as photo restoration. He has been widely published. In June 2011 the Prince of Wales announced Kris was the overall winner in The National Countryside Photography competition. With this in mind we wanted to showcase his stunning landscapes and show how a photograph in large format can be equal to a painting.
Rachael is a Surrey based photographer with a particular interest in landscapes and nature. She is a Licentiate of the Royal Photographic Society and a judge for the Surrey Photographic Association. Her images have been published online, in books and in magazines, and she was short listed in the International Garden Photographer of the Year competition 2013. She has recently published a series of photographic articles and given an illustrated lecture on local waterways, the Wey Navigation. Some of her images are licensed through Getty Images and the South of England Picture Library. Rachael also writes a wonderful blog that is erudite, informative and fascinating. The quality of Rachael’s work provided us with a real issue trying to select an image for the show; however her simple B&W images of Lyme just stood out and had to be included.
