Alan Taylor, Stoke-on-Trent Member Since August 2016 Artist Statement I am a fine art and portrait photographer based in the Midlands. I specialise in working with people. I love the dynamic, discovering more about a person as I work with them. I am a self-taught photographer, having grown up with the medium since I was a child. My passion for it remained with me whilst I worked in a variety of museums and art galleries around the country. Eventually I had to leave the stability of that work to follow this passion of mine.
I grew up at a time when film was the only medium and I still enjoy using 35mm and medium format film. I do use digital and I am an accomplished user of Photoshop. I do like to combine older technologies and equipment with the new and have a collection of vintage lenses, each with their own characteristics, that I use on both film and digital camera bodies. These lenses really are my palette!
My work is available usually in short limited editions and can be produced on a surface to match your requirements. I also accept private one off commissions.
