When I first came here, some 15 years ago, I was still shooting with film which had to be processed in the nearest professional E6 laboratory….which was a two hour drive away. With the processing time and the drive back, the day was gone. The magic of digital photography has allowed me to carry on producing pictures, from the heart of the French countryside, and Photoshop has given me the magic of the darkroom without the gloom and the chemicals. Because of these wonders I have amassed a great quantity of pictures but, up to now, had not found an efficient and attractive way to share them with people and to offer them for sale in a professional way. In recent years, through my son Sam Stowell, I came to hear of the Print Space in London and, on researching them, was very impressed with what I saw.They have now opened The Hub, which acts as a gallery where photographers, such as myself, can show and sell their work. Print Space produces the prints, be they giclé or C-Type, on a wonderful range of papers (including Hahnemuhle) and, if you so choose, offers a multiplicity of framing options and sorts out delivery…a total package.
Currently, I have only organised one gallery of seascapes but I am busy putting together a variety of different galleries which will feature those things that make my life such a pleasure..food, photography and France.
