My name is Barry Bottomley and I am a street and urban landscape photographer living in Finsbury Park, London. My interest in photography started at school when I discovered, with a camera in my hand I could express myself in an artistic way that I couldn't otherwise. With my passion for photography now sparked I set out learning some of basic rules of photography and some 40 years later now find myself selling my images as fine art giclée prints and framed prints that would be perfect for home decor or the office, as well as as the perfect gift for somebody who likes abstract photography and fine art prints
I apply the same passion and eye for detail I have for my photography to the decision process I use for my choice of print type for my images. All my prints are printed professionally as Giclée fine art inkjet prints on Hahnemuhle Photo Rag photographic paper, resulting in a gallery-quality print with outstanding colour and black and white detail with a delicately textured surface. The images you see on my website are available as individual fine art prints, ready for your own choice of frame or as framed prints ready for home decor, or for the office to add a vibrant aesthetic appeal, or as gifts for loved ones and friends.
Camera wise, I use a Fujifilm XT3 and mostly shoot using a Fujifilm XF 50mm f/2 WR lens. I also carry a Fujifilm XF 16-80mm f4 lens for when I need a bit more versality along with a smaller fixed lens.. As a trusty and much loved pocket friend I always have the Ricoh GRIII Street Edition to hand.
I am always looking to get out onto the streets of London seeking the abstract from the everyday, looking through windows, seeking reflections, walking towards the light, or capturing a moment that comes at me from out of the blue. Patience, resilience and observation are name of the game.
I like to work with projects and always have two or three on the go at once. One of the projects I am working on at the moment is on the coastal towns of Kent, Sussex and Essex, photographing the landscape and the people who populate it.. This will take the shape of a book when completed. However, no date is penned in yet. But if you would like to kept in the loop with this and any other of my projects and limited order prints please sign up to my mailing list.
I also have 2 zines available to buy, both featuring 32 colour images of my street photography. For more information email: email@example.com
