Limited edition digital prints

Mid-century graphic designer, art lovers and curious collectors who have lived and journeyed across four continents discovering visually fascinating objets d’art, craft, ephemera and tastes.

Our raison d’être is to ‘revive, share, inspire’ giving beautiful often ignored artifacts a new beginning.

This selection of limited edition prints is part of an on-going series of images influenced by obscure ‘street art’ from our travels, which have been digitally re-worked to capture the vibrance, texture and energy of those places.

    Bill Hull
    Freelance Photographer & Visual Designer

      When I started in photography, large format plate and rostrum sheet film cameras were normal in studios. I processed and printed (darkroom work) with such formats, in my personal and freelance work I’ve used 35mm SLR’s and large format 6×6 cm twin-lens film cameras. I am familiar with both old and new techniques. Manipulation and enhancement in the past was completed in darkrooms and or as screen prints, but nowadays I use DSLR’s and digital applications, such as Adobe’s Creative Suite – PhotoShop, Illustrator; Lightroom, Affinity – Photo/Design, etc.

      For more than forty years, I have been working as a photographer in London, England, a location that is reflected in my work. I try to capture my part of the world as I observe it and sometimes play with the results (retouch, enhance and manipulate images). I presently sell my work as prints (enlargements) and greetings cards to local businesses including, for example, giftware shops, florists, bookshops and art framers in London at locations of Clapham, Dulwich, Herne Hill and Brixton together with distribution throughout the UK and internationally to offices and homes in the USA and Australia.

      Speciality work includes

      • Product placement studio pack-shots (still-life); studio location food photography/videos; studio location portraits
      • Public relations (PR)
      • Digital image manipulation; processing; retouching; enhancements
      • Teaching photography
      • Land/City/Sea and Waterscapes

      Other skills

      • Typography;
      • DTP/design & scanning;
      • Information technology on Macs
      • Screen printing
      • Pre/post-production video camera & editing

      In my work as a commercial freelance food photographer/video cameraman, I contributed to the publishers Thomson and Cengage, for their Professional Chef and Food & Beverage Services range of books and online videos. I have also taught photography and darkroom skills to others, running courses that demystify photography and simplifying the developing process to all ages and abilities.

      Janet Rich 

      Paintings – Mosaics – Workshops 

      Janet takes her inspiration from the natural world. Her abstract paintings are a reflection of this. Each one unique, they pulse to a rhythmic, intuitive and felt sense. She aims to cultivate this energy and spirit in her workshops and groups, where process and fun are more important than the finished object.

      Original brightly coloured, hand painted images in gouache on paper in wooden frame. Mosaic tiles decorated with buttons, beads and various colourful, interesting bits and pieces.

      Other works include A4 framed prints of charcoal, ink, pastel drawings and photos. As well as producing her own work Janet is an artist/therapist supporting individuals and groups to find their creativity using a variety of media and techniques.

        Crochet & Knitted Accessories
          I’m Elizabeth and I make crocheted and knitted accessories.

          I’ve been crocheting for about 10 years and my excitement is the same as when I first started because there are so many possibilities and always something new to learn. I love the act of using a simple hook to transform lengths of thread into something that is usable, wearable, or a piece of art.

          My background is in Geography and Statistics and whilst studying and working in these fields, crochet always came along with me. Whilst on the surface these subjects may seem far apart from textile work, there are connections: exploration forms a large part of both Geography and the creative process; and calculations are critical to Statistics and to the ability to produce a piece to a specific size.

          My aim when making is to create something fun and functional, with an edge.

           

          Bill – Bill Hull Photography will be bringing a range of photographic prints, framed, unframed, of various sizes as well as greeting cards
