about

Clare Whistler
Welcome

I am a still life photographer based in Kendal, Cumbria, with a passion for flower and garden photography.
Intrigued by pattern, design and the intricate detail and form of botanical subjects found in nature.
Often we overlook the 'small'. I wish to draw these beautiful structures to the viewer’s eye in which I have found a new appreciation.
I work with a digital SLR camera producing Archival Fine Art Prints and Greetings Cards from my garden studio and exhibit locally.

A little more about me...

Over the years I have studied photography first in Birmingham (UCE) 1991-1994 and then London (LCPDT Back Hill) 1995-1996.
I left my studies to work as a photographers assistant covering many photographic genres including architecture, interiors, advertising, studio and location.
During the summer holidays I would assist my father (a retired professional photographer) and in my free time be inspired to photograph subjects I'd find in his garden e.g. my image of 'Pear'.
Always hoping for a quiet moment when the studio was free, I would create still life studies to photograph. I began to discover a hidden world finding beauty and intrigue in the mundane.
Photography has become my life long passion.

I hope my work will add an element of contemporary style/design to your home or office, either as a piece of wall art or on a much deeper subconscious level, where I have tried to capture and convey a feeling or emotion.

Thank you for taking the time to look

Clare
