Pure Essence – A Fine Art Photo Exhibition

Happy New Year everyone! A great start to 2018 for GT Studios – we have been invited by Jin from By Blackbird on King William Road at Goodwood to exhibit some of our work. We are so excited to be given this opportunity.

We observed this short eared owl for about an hour whilst it caught rodents and fed its chicks. Olympic Peninsula, Washington State, USA


The hardest part for us was deciding on a theme – when we are not photographing children we have quite an eclectic collection – we both have a very different way of looking at the same thing and this is actually a really good thing! At first we thought we would present “The Owl and the Pussycat” – Graham took some awesome images of an owl when we were in America and we both have a huge collection of cats both large and small from all over the world. On reflection we decided that this was perhaps not appealing enough to a wider audience.


We then gave our light painting and abstract work some consideration – however, this too is fairly restrictive in its appeal!

We eventually decided that we both took images of flowers and flowers featured in a lot of photo experiences with our clients too. Perhaps we should exhibit our flowers…..

For flowers and girls – it’s the little details that matter

Most of our photography these days revolves around children – but we still find ourselves photographing flowers. Sometimes it is in conjunction with a photo experience; sometimes it is when we are enjoying some down-time in some of the beautiful gardens we visit both locally and when on holiday.

When we put this collection together for the exhibition we realised that Pure Essence was fitting for both our Flower Collection on display and for sale as well as our Photo Experiences that we offer.

In philosophy, essence is the property or set of properties that make an entity or substance what it fundamentally is, and which it has by necessity, and without which it loses its identity – this is what we try to capture when you look into our lens.

Every child is a different kind of flower and all together make this world a beautiful garden.

We photograph flowers so their essence doesn’t fade – we create photographic art capturing the essence of children so the memories last forever.

We would love to see you at the official opening of the exhibition on Saturday 6th of January 2pm -5pm

See all the details in the invitation above.
