Julian Calverley has been creating imagery in one form or another since he was old enough to hold a paint brush.
Born in Hertfordshire in 1964, he very quickly demonstrated a love and natural talent for drawing and painting, in particular watercolour landscape work.
After a brief and uninspiring spell at art college, Julian realised it was the mix of photography and traditional darkroom skills that would allow him to express himself most effectively.
The next few years saw experience gained with various studios and in 1988, at 24 years old, Julian set up his first studio and darkroom.
He now divides his time between personal and assigned work, his attentions mainly focussed on capturing landscapes in their various atmospheric conditions.
This fascination and connection with the landscape, British locations in particular, dates back to when he was a young boy, with numerous family trips spent wild camping in and around the Scottish Highlands and Western Isles.
These everlasting memories help to provide a deep affinity with the wild, grand open spaces of the British Isles.
Increased demand for his personal landscape pieces has spurred Julian to make this work available in the form of editioned Large Format Archival Pigment Prints.
He works closely with his friend and colleague, Jack Lowe, who is arguably the finest printer working in Europe today.
