Graeme Gales was born and raised in Plymouth and later
graduated with a B.Ed Hons degree from the College of St. Mark & St
John. He then later moved to work
in Kent, but with his roots firmly in Devon, Graeme has been a regular visitor
to the West Country these past 25 years. Growing up close to the South Devon coastline
has left an indelible imprint on him and this can be clearly seen in the
timeless images he seeks to create. Graeme has always been profoundly influenced by the sea and
perhaps it was understandable that many of Graeme`s earliest photos revealed
his fascination with seascapes and Devon`s beautiful countryside. Graeme is a
proud Devonian and likes nothing better than to share his love of the South
Hams and his passion for photography and sailing.
Graeme`s interest in photography has developed into more than just a hobby ever since he went digital in 2002. After a few commissioned photos for â€œSchool Houseâ€, a national educational magazine, and a highly successful exhibition of colour and black & white photographs in The Tunnel, Tonbridge, Graeme has deservedly acquired a growing reputation.
Graeme`s work has been inspired by a number of different sources; From his time spent living in South Africa, to buying his cottage near Kingsbridge. The local environment has always provided a rich tapestry of subject material, whilst individuals such as G. Miles, W. Leigh, C. Waite and D. Noton have given him both inspiration and encouragement. After the success of his local South Devon scenes Graeme is now seeking to develop his range of photography by creating stunning triptych photos combining vibrant colour and beauty.
All his photos are limited edition Giclee prints produced by Art4site Ltd on superb quality Hahnemuhle William Turner / German Etching acid free paper. His work has been bought by buyers from Australia, Singapore & Hong Kong.
