My name is Graham Hartley and I've been a photographer at many levels for over 25 years starting my 'apprenticeship' with 35mm film and progressing up to the present day and digital format, allowing me to develop my skills and nurture my passion for photography. I progressed through this time starting as a hobbyist then on to serious amateur, semi professional and finally onto professional.
In the 'old days' I used to develop my own film and process my own prints which has helped me with the current form of processing and post processing through Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop.
As a father of six I guess it is no surprise that I particularly like working with children as their unpredictability allows for such wonderful, individual and often plain cheeky shots that always bring a smile to your face.
My love of nature and natural light means I am equally at home outside capturing the beauty that surrounds our everyday lives.
