Background

Equipment

The photographs on this site have been produced by use of only the best professional quality equipment. Nikon D700 and D800 dSLRs with a variety of professional grade lenses were used for most of the landscape photographs. A small number of photographs were taken using Fuji 690 Rangefinder and Mamiya 220 TLR medium format film cameras.

Prints

Please use the 'Enquiries' page if you wish to purchase a print of any image on this site. An industrial strength Epson 7600 wide format printer is used to produce the prints. Our prints are made on highest quality art materials, such as Premium Lustre 250 gram photo-paper, watercolour papers and canvas. On all our materials, we use Epson UltraChrome pigments which are very stable, giving fade and colour shift resistance of 90 years, under average indoor light conditions.

Post-Processing

In general, the amount of post-processing that is applied to the images, using Nikon Capture, is minimal. The aim is to capture, and to convey to the viewer, the atmosphere of the location at the time that the photograph was taken, rather than to produce eye-catching, excessively saturated images. However, there are some obvious violations of this aim, usually where a particular effect is being explored.

Our Clients

We have undertaken commissions for several clients including the Lytham Club Day organisers, KWRA and Chappel Publishing. Please contact us for further information.

Exhibitions

We have exhibited at many locations including the Brockholes and Seatoller Barn National Park Centres and the Moot Hall Keswick. We have also held many private exhibitions at various Lake District locations.

The Photographer

Graham Sumner has an MSc in Computer Science and 30 years experience in the computer industry, from which he has recently retired. He printed his first monochrome 35mm photograph in 1962 and over the years has been involved with medium format and digital photography.

For the last few years, Graham has combined his interests in photography with mountain biking and hill walking. In the distant past, Graham was obsessed by rock climbing and potholing. Thankfully, he is now almost cured of these addictions but has been known to stick his head underground in recent times for the purposes of photography.
