Sam Gregory is a landscape and fine art photographer based on the south coast of England. His focus is on working within the landscape to reveal the flow, rhythm and balance of human and natural design elements. Also re-imagining the seen landscape into compelling visual stories exploring the flexibility and nature of time and addressing issues around climate change.
Sam’s work has featured in various photographic publications, been exhibited in major galleries, and is used by large organisations such as The National Trust.
Sam recently released his first book MESOZOIC which explored millions of years of geological changes in the landscape. Sam shoots with film and digital set-ups and is comfortable using various techniques from ICM to long exposure and macro and believes the image making process is multi-step with equal weight being given to each stage. From receptiveness in the landscape to cultivating a visual concept and creating images in the field. Finally finishing with post-processing, printing, and presentation to fully realise the vision.
