A Photography Open Studio in the Heart of Northumberland
What’s with the name CameraWork45 ?
I chose the name in homage to the famous photography magazine Camera Work, a quarterly journal published by Alfred Stieglitz from 1903 to 1917. The studio’s name naturally evolved to CameraWork45 when my offer to create an open studio amongst the established artists and craftspeople in Gallery Forty5 was accepted!
Open Photography Studio
I’m convinced a Photographer’s Studio and Workshop can be an open and friendly space to all those who practise photography or who are simply interested in it.
So if the door is open, feel welcome to come in, be it to talk photography or to simply sit in the ‘Horner Book Corner’ and browse through books on photography to your hearts content.
I’ll also be signposting great photography websites and I welcome suggestions from all.
My Photographic Practice
My photographic practice is broad and ranges from classic studio to street and landscape photography. You can see my work at chrischevphotographer.com , which focuses on wedding and portraiture, and at chevaugeonphoto.com home of my photographic wanders and experiments. If I’m not out and about or shooting in the studio, then you’ll likely catch me doing post production work or printing.
Home to my photographic practice CameraWork45 also offers photographic workshops to individuals or small groups. The workshops cover different skill sets from camera settings to using lighting in or out of the studio and different genres of photography.
Archival Quality Inkjet Prints
I used to print my own analogue black and white prints and was naturally drawn to learning the craft of inkjet printing. Making archival quality inkjet prints is as technically demanding but a lot less work heavy than analogue printing. Both types of prints have unique qualities .
If you’re looking at setting up a darkroom and want some guidance, or you’d like to know how to set up for inkjet printing don’t hesitate to get in touch.
I want CameraWork45 to engage with the local community . I recently ‘covered’ the 2019 edition of the musical fundraiser Feltonbury.
So if you’re local and need photographic support for a non-commercial project…don’t hesitate to reach out.
