My name is Barry Graeme Bottomley and I am a Street and Urban Landscape photographer living in London. My interest in photography started at school when I discovered, having not been very good and sketching and painting, with a camera in my hand I could express myself in an artistic way that I couldn't otherwise. This sparked my passion for photography and to cut a long story short, some 40 years later and with a large and ever growing portfolio of Street and Urban Landscapes images of London I now find myself selling these images as 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. After all what is the point of spending so much time taking photographs of London and developing my individual style taking on such an energetic city, just to print them on lightweight C-Type standard paper?
All my prints are printed professionally as Giclée fine art inkjet prints on Hahnemuhle Pearl-Gloss finished paper resulting in a gallery-quality print with outstanding colour and black and white detail with a delicately textured surface. Furthermore, the prints will last for up to 40 years under normal lighting conditions - 200 years in the dark!
I am always looking to get out onto the streets of London to look for the unusual in the usual and to apply my own style of photography to it. I am working on a project on the coasts of Kent, Sussex and Essex, photographing the landscape and the people in it. This will take the shape of a book to be released in 2023
