What is a photograph........A moment in time ?.......Or a Blink Of An Eye ?
This website is a collection of photographs taken by myself, an accomplished photographer with a love of the outdoors and the North of England, over a period of time from 2008 to current date. Always changing, constantly evolving.........these photographs display this treasured part of the world through a blink of my eye.
Some of these views you may have seen before, some you may not. Some may evoke distant memories in you whilst others may make you want to get out your map, hunt these places down and visit them either for the first time or to re-visit somewhere long since forgotten.
Whilst they may make you stop and stare, for me these photographs capture a specific moment, a breath taken and held followed by a simple click of a shutter...........the blink of an eye.....my eye.
All of the photographs can be ordered directly from this website framed in a variety of sizes, just go to the 'more' tag, on the list of pages above to find the pages entitled . Alternatively if you have a specific sze or format you would like please contact me via the Contact Form and I`ll reply to you with availability.Any size, A4, A3 etc can hopefully be accomodated.
So.......wander, mooch around, flick back and forward between photographs, take time out & come back to this website.......do whatever you like, I only hope that you enjoy looking at these photographs as much as I did taking them.
So who am I ?
My name is Mark Vincent (LRPS), a photographer whose love of the North of England is something I try to express in the photos I take.
In November 2011 I achieved Licentiateship Status from the Royal Photographic Society for a panel of 10 photographs based on the coastline around where I live. Some of these photos can be seen in the section of this website entitled " My Coastline....".
I seem to have spent a lot of my life with a camera in my possession, from holiday snaps to more serious moments I`ve always been intrigued how the momentary click of a shutter captures life, frozen in time forever.
A photographer always keeps an eye open, the split second that can produce a shot of beauty, I hope that some of these photos show something extra, a rawness that we may all see from time to time.
