Helen Llewelyn | Founder

Helen’s photography journey began when she was given a point and shoot instant Polaroid camera in the 80’s. It never really hit the mark though, when trying to take photographs of the natural world. Her dad let her use his 35mm film SLR Pentax to experiment with but not very often and her interest in photography wained. It wasn’t until she went to Art College to study Graphic Design she became connected again with the world of photography. Setting up the photography studio with lights, models, products to go with the design briefs her lecturers set and then taking the unprocessed film into the dark room to generate the final image to use in the design mockup was a highlight of her time there.

The early part of Helen’s career in the Design industry was working mainly on the other side of the lens producing design layouts and getting images ready for print using the latest scanning and processing software. Her career then took her to the forefront of the emerging digital world and image manipulation became easier with the continual enhancement and development of the Adobe products including Photoshop.

So, life took its course with a family, she setup her own design business and again photography took a backseat. It wasn’t until her children grew older, she found she had more time on her hands and was given a present of a low budget DSLR camera. She got her photography buzz back and started again to look at the natural world in a different way through the camera lens.

Capturing on camera amazing wildlife encounters has become part of a life long passion that Helen has had with wildlife from a young age. Being able to identify the different species of birds, animals and watching their behaviour has helped in getting that image. If you are ever out walking in the wonderful Wiltshire countryside you might spot her with her camera not too far away.
