Warren Millar Photography

http://warrenmillarphotographyFrom the day in the mid 1970’s when Warren first picked up a camera he has been amazed and inspired by the whole world of Photography. It was fun to Warren then and still is to this very day. His photographic career has been varied and wide spread.

After taking pictures mainly for fun and friends during the 70s, in 1986 Warren saw an ad in the local paper for a new civilian post as a Police photographer and Scenes of Crime officer with the Cheshire Constabulary which he applied for and due to the fact that he bored the interviewers silly with his then expanding portfolio he got the job. He was trained as a Police Photographer and Scenes of Crime officer at the then centre of excellence in Crook (apt name!!) Co Durham.

He worked six years with the Cheshire Constabulary photographing and collecting evidence from all types of crime scenes from Murders to thefts. In 1992 with his wife Patsy he moved to Gloucestershire Constabulary where he worked In Cheltenham for 8 years. He was with the force during the Fred West investigation and did have a small involvement in that case. In 2001 he moved back up north and worked at both the Lancashire Constabulary and British Transport Police.

2006 was a big turning point as he had to give up police photography to look after his wife who had been ill with M.S. since the 1980s but had now got a lot worse. He always tried to keep up to date with photography but during the years from 2006 to 2008 he didn’t do that much work.

In September 2009 Patsy his wife was diagnosed with ovarian cancer and sadly passed away In October that same year. Since that date Warren has gone head first into his love for Studio photography and lighting and now has his own studio in his home town of Widnes Cheshire where he specialises in high quality studio portraits, model portfolios, product photography and commercial work. He is a perfectionist when it comes to lighting (studio or natural outdoors) and this he puts down to his training as a police photographer all those years ago were the photographs that were taken, were at the end of the day, like any other evidence and had to be right.

His work has been published worldwide thanks to his ever increasing portfolio with some of the biggest Micro stock libraries.
His studio is professionally equipped with the latest Bowens lighting and Warren uses Nikon Full Frame cameras and lenses in order to deliver the best possible results from any job he has to undertake.

Photography by Gerald Hill

Photography by Gerald HillGerald Hill has been involved in photography for over 30 years.

Gerald Hill grew up in a time when photography was a science that demanded an in depth understanding of the relationship between light, shutter speed, and their resulting harmony on the exposed film. He spent many hours in a darkroom trying to bring about results that expressed a moment of time in a way that brought enjoyment to the viewer.

Even though technology has changed the way his darkroom looks, the commitment to challenge and inspire people who look at his work still remains paramount.

Some of his work is on permanent display in the "Art of Emprise Collection", a bank owed accumulation of investment art that is one of the finest corporate owned collections in the country.

500px

500px500px is a photographic community powered by creative people from all over the world that lets you share and discover inspiring photographs.

Being an artist has never been easy, especially in today's fast-paced digital age. Photographers can't just be artists anymore; they have to be managers, accountants, marketers, assistants, web developers, and their own mean, lean, shutter-clicking machines. Too many things to handle? 500px sure think so! 500px was started to help photographers get greater exposure, reduce some of the marketing headaches, and let creatives concentrate on what they do best. We all love seeing amazing work and equally love promoting it! A sense of inspired community is also important. 500px believe that the way forward is through presenting, discussing, supporting, and socializing with like-minded people.
