MORNING: Chords of Grey. This is an exploration into the mind of Paul Gallagher, regarded as a monochrome master landscape Photographer and printer for over 27 years. Paul will look at a retrospective of twenty years of work and talk about his approach, the use of film cameras including large format film cameras, and his transition from darkroom printing to using modern digital techniques. Paul will also discuss his recent book titled the same "Chords of Grey" and will have copies of this cloth bound limited edition award winning book with him for sale on the day.
AFTERNOON: Creating a fine monochrome digital print. Paul will show his digital workflow from a digital camera raw file and raw negative scan to finished exhibition quality monochrome print. Paul's approach is simple and straightforward and he has transferred the techniques he used from printing professionally in dark room for over twenty two years.
About our speaker: Paul Gallagher has been a fine art black and white and colour photographer for over twenty seven years, dedicating his photography to Northern England and the Scottish Highlands and photographing predominantly using large format equipment.
He began his photographic career studying graphic design and photography at Southport College of Art, England from which he gained a distinction in photography. This led him to work professionally in a commercial studio in Liverpool. Some years later, Paul was invited to return to teach photography part-time at Southport College. He has been awarded an Associateship from the Royal Photographic Society.
Paul has mostly exchanged the dark room for the use of digital print production. Paul’s techniques are very traditional in the field and he is regarded as an expert in the use of the 5x4 view camera. All negatives are still hand processed by Paul and are scanned to produce high quality files.
Paul is a regular keynote speaker to Photographic Societies throughout the UK regarding his work and techniques in both the use of large format equipment and fine art digital print production. Paul runs workshops in the field for his company Aspect2i for which he is a founder member and also leads class based workshops for the Epson Print Academy. He has received several commissions from organisations such as the Environment Agency and the BBC and his work has been used extensively by Epson, Ilford and Permajet to name a few.
Paul has written extensively for photographic publications about his techniques and approach to landscape photography and digital image production for many years. Paul is a writer for the Professional Image Maker Magazine and also holds regular exhibitions of his work. His book “Aspects of Expression” discussing the expressive monochrome image was commissioned by Argentum and released in October 2008. Paul’s fine art limited edition book “Chords of Grey” was released in 2010 supported by a two week exhibition in the gallery@oxo in London. “Chords of Grey” has achieved 5 awards to date.
