Rich Gresswell Photography

Welcome to my portfolio

Hello. I am a photographer based in York in the UK. I've been taking photos since my parents gave me a Kodak Instamatic camera for my eighth birthday. At the time I lived in Sweden and the natural surroundings made a great impression on me: the trees, lakes, wild flowers and light summer evenings. I've been taking photographs ever since!

I continue to draw inspiration from nature: I like to get close up and explore the patterns, colours and textures of flowers and other botanical subjects such as trees and leaves. I am also interested in the forms presented by land and seascapes.

I have a process approach to my work, usually capturing the beginnings of images on my phone camera before building up my emergent pictures with layers of digital manipulation on my phone or tablet using free photo-editing apps such as Snapseed and Instagram.
