An emerging landscape photographer based in Totnes, South Devon, UK – Phil Hemsley (a.k.a. ‘Morpheus71’ – from his graffiti days) is incredibly lucky to live between stunning beaches and fantastic moorland – he loves walking in the moors, climbing the cliffs and catching waves.

He is passionate about using visual imagery to capture the emotions, atmosphere and action of his subjects. His highly detailed work reflects his passion for rich light, colour and contrasting textures.

    Oh wow, I would too! Love those patterns and colours, and the leaves add the icing on the cake!

  • Thanks very much Mel for your generous thoughts and comments :) I have got my preview afternoon on Sunday for my first solo exhibition… all pretty much sorted, been a heck of a lot more to the planning than deciding on what pictures to put where, learnt lots and rather exhausted already! Looking forward to it opening now :)

    Congratulations! Yes it is exhausting! Best of luck!

  • Cheers Mel – it was exhausting building up to it with all the behind the scenes stuff! Had a great preview afternoon with about 60 people turning up and about a thousand visitors over the rest of the week…crazy but brilliant and touching to hear lots of positive feedback. Sold quite a few mounted prints and framed ones too :) Got three requests to do lectures/ slideshows and people interested in my landscape workshops for beginners… so I reckon I have ‘got my name out there’ a bit more now! Yay!
