Natural Light

Photography
Artist / Practitioner

Natural Light is the photographic work of the Cambridge landscape photographer and printer, Gary Holliday. Born in Northern Ireland, I was originally trained in advertising photography, but my passion for my surroundings and culture led me to some of the most beautiful and fascinating landscapes of the British Isles.

Much of my photography work has centred around the community, working on social projects and documenting the historical and news-worthy events of my native city during a troubled period in history. I’ve worked as a lecturer in further education colleges, teaching photography and developing the skills of young adults and special needs students which was very rewarding, igniting and nurturing hidden talents.

Now resident in Cambridge, I continue my work in landscape photography creating awareness of the often ignored natural environment around us. My photography is crafted in a traditional darkroom, working primarily in black and white which has an evocative timeless quality. The subtle tones of light and shadow printed onto my favoured textured art papers create a very soft pencil drawing look.

Selected negatives can be found on a range of unique jewellery pieces and homeware. In contrast to the darkroom work, creative use of colour allows experimental freedom touching on my love of psychedelia. The product range can be found online and in a growing number of gallery and craft boutiques around the United Kingdom.
