My name is Rachael and I have lived in the West Country all of my life. Although the rest of the Country has equally beautiful spots, I believe that Somerset, Dorset and Devon are absolutely stunning and I am very lucky to live here.
Living in Somerset, I have wonderful coast lines, stunning scenery and gorgeous cities all on my doorstep and amazing scenery such as Exmoor or Dartmoor just a hop, skip and a jump away. Due to this wonderfully large variety of scenery, I believe this has given me the opportunity of taking some wonderful shots.
I enjoy taking all sorts of styles and types of photographs but as you can probably tell, my favourite has to be landscape photography. Also, my favourite time of year would be autumn – due to the large range of colours – and you have that crisp, cool air which is superb for clearing the mind as well as taking wonderful photos.
For me, photography has always been a hobby and a passion. Although it is something you can learn through study such as degrees, my style of photography is self taught and is very intuitive – and have learnt through photographing favourite scenes throughout the seasons at different times of the day and have enjoyed it every step of the way.
I hope you enjoy this portfolio. Please feel free to browse, download an image (for a small fee) or mail me should you wish any further details – such as upcoming exhibitions, offers or forthcoming news.
