Charlotte is an artist who uses FineArt and Abstract Photography to showcase her love for the beauty of nature. She draws inspiration from the changing seasons and weather patterns that she observes through her window, which never ceases to amaze her.
” Anything that excites me for any reason, I will photograph; not searching for unusual subject matter, but making the commonplace unusual.” Edward Weston
Hi, a little bit about me,
” I create my images using a combination of Intentional camera movement known as ICM and double exposures. Some of my images are created in a moment of spontaneity, whilst others are carefully combined to replicate a memory. I love the ICM technique for the freedom it allows me from focusing purely on the technical aspects of photography. It’s fun to experiment and create something closer to art, stretching the envelope of photography in new directions. The use of double exposures allows me to explore the feeling further, adding softness, texture, contrast, depth and colour.
The aspiration for my images is that they are recognised as ‘art’ and not just photographs. I hope that my passion for the landscape around me is evident and that my images make you take a minute to linger and wonder about your own location in which you live.
My early photographic career over ten years ago tended towards portraits and weddings. However, with a move to the Netherlands, my interest in landscapes was triggered, and more recently, my love of abstract photographic art with the use of ICM and double exposure techniques. I now live in a small village in the east of the Netherlands with my husband and son and a collection of ponies, sheep, chickens, dogs and cats; the rural idyll. I love world travel for the photographic, cultural, and life experiences it offers.
I am a Panel Member and Judge with The Guild of Photographers and jointly lead Photography Tours in the UK and the Netherlands with Light and Land.” – Charlotte Bellamy
