It’s a fabulous month when two fellow photographers have Greenwich photographic exhibitions on at the same time.
The first is Jo Tennant, exhibiting her work as part of The Body, Movement and Dance at Made in Greenwich gallery opposite Cutty Sark station on Creek Road. Greenwich is lucky in having Jo’s work as part of the exhibition. She created a stunning panel of 20 images of dancers to gain her Fellowship with the British Institute of Professional Photography, inspired by a childhood of dance training.
Jo has an established business as a wedding and portrait photographer and her dance fine art prints were taken and printed in her spare time as a challenge. She has framed and mounted prints for sale in the exhibition.
The second photographer is Mike Curry, who has his landscapes at The Greenwich Gallery on the corner of Royal Hill and Peyton Place until March 31. The exhibition Mike describes as “an eclectic mix of work from sweeping panoramas to more abstract studies.” Mike will be at the gallery every Saturday and Sunday to answer questions about his work.
G has just given me permission to show some of her maternity portraits taken a few weeks ago. She and her husband A took a lot of time planning their session and came in for a consultation a week ahead of their portrait session, so they could maximise their session time & best choose what to bring with them. The first three used drapes from the studio.
G brought her wedding veil, with its delicate softness and wonderful draping qualities.
She had also raided one of my favourite Soho fabric shops for some translucent material which also draped wonderfully, giving us a range of new lines. This is my fave from this session.
This portrait is especially abstract, meaning that it could be hung in many areas of the home. It would look especially good as either a framed art print or as a box frame or canvas.
Claire and her partner Sam came in today for their maternity portrait ordering session and have given permission to share a couple of their and my favourites from their London maternity portraits taken several weeks ago. The main reason for the session was to have one of the fine art style maternity prints to be framed on their wall.
