Peering through the gaps in the trunks, the sunset is gently cascading into the enchanted woodland. The trees are surrounded by a carpet of bluebells, creating more of a fairytale than a forest.Mike Shepherd's beautiful photography aims to achieve a clear description of natural design and elemental simplicity in the landscape. He explores inner light, essence and ideal form. His images are simultaneously realistic and impressionistic. Born in London in 1964, Shepherd took up photography on his sixteenth birthday. A Lancaster University graduate, he came out with a first-class honours degree in Eastern art and architecture, going on to teach photography, digital imaging and digital art at the same university. After this, he embarked on his now full-time career as a landscape photographer, where he is strongly influenced by the American landscape monochrome tradition.Have you thought about wall hooks and fittings?
