George Wheelhouse | Fine Art Nature Photography Last month we took a 10-day road-trip to the Outer Hebrides, in North-West Scotland. It was somewhere I’d wanted to visit for years, and now felt like the perfect time to seek out somewhere remote. Photographically I was intending to concentrate on the sweeping seascapes which make the islands so popular amongst photographers, but once there I soon found that my head was turned by the highland cattle cows, which are so characteristic…

George Wheelhouse | Fine Art Nature Photography I really enjoy photographing farmyard animals and livestock, which tend to be overlooked by most nature photographers, as they’re not wild. You don’t get the ‘thrill of the chase’ feeling that you get when out looking for some scarce or timid creature, but on the flip side you do get to work with an animal which is used to humans, and that will allow you in closer, for a more intimate and expressive…

George Wheelhouse | Fine Art Nature Photography What an amazing spring we had this year, and a better opportunity to enjoy it than ever before. At first, photography took a back seat for me. Uninspired and unmotivated, I busied myself with other things. But once the leaves started to come out, I suddenly remembered an idea I had last spring, and didn’t get very far with. I noticed for the first time last year, that there’s a period of 7-10…

George Wheelhouse | Fine Art Nature Photography | On Black – Fine Art Photography Article

George Wheelhouse | Fine Art Nature Photography | On Black I recently rolled out a new stream; OnBlack|OnWhite. For several years now, I’ve been shooting dark (‘low-key’) portraits of animals for my On Black project, and bright (‘high-key’) portraits for my On White range. I have an Instagram account (@WheelhousePhoto) for all my nature photography, but my new Instagram feed is exclusively for my low-key and high-key animal portraits. It’s a style of photography I really enjoy, and I’m sure…

George Wheelhouse | Fine Art Nature Photography Announcing a new photo, available to order in print: “Reindeer on White”. Reindeer on WhitePhotographed in the snow of Finnish Lapland. He was a handsome beast, and a great subject. I was very happy to catch the eye contact here, which elevates this portrait, in my view. I also like the tension created from the trailing leg; clipped from view, as he walks into shot with apparent complicity.Photographed in high-key portrait…

George Wheelhouse | Fine Art Nature Photography Earlier in the year I was considering which animals I’d like to photograph as part of my On Black / On White projects, and I set myself the challenge of getting some more highland cattle portraits. I’ve got a few cow photos already, but I find highland cattle very appealing, and I felt I could still get something new from the subject. Fortunately, a friend and photographer Lawrence Smith found some highland cattle and secured permission from…

George Wheelhouse | Fine Art Nature Photography My two long-running nature photography projects are High-Key portraits on White & Low-Key portraits on Black, and I’m always working on ideas to create new photos to those galleries. If you browse through the two galleries you’ll notice that I enjoy photographing animals with horns and antlers. I don’t know what that is. I guess there’s something quite graphic about them. And when you portray the subject in a human-like way as I try to do, that headgear…

George Wheelhouse | Fine Art Nature Photography I enjoy producing ‘high-key’ wildlife portraits, including portraits on white. It’s been a style I’ve been working on since 2011, and is the sister project to my On Black series. I’ve written posts about ‘low-key’ nature photography before: I was recently asked if I could add to those blog posts with a similar tutorial or introduction to high key nature photography. So here we go…     What is High-Key?   High-key is…
