Portrait of a Photographer: Shirley Brigden

Photographers Story:

"I am a Windsor based photographer with a passion for travel, photography and for participating in art shows. I love to travel and photograph around the world, accompanied by my husband Michel. We are always looking for new locations to introduce to our shows, in fact three of our new locations were suggested by clients, Sicily, Puglia and Abruzze.

We have been selling photographs at shows for 13 years now. With our British and French heritage, we both have a love for Europe, in particular the old walled towns, with the ancient architecture and the old cobblestone alleys.

The colour and texture of the old stone and stucco inspires me, and when you look at the images, you are drawn into the scene. Another of our loves is Africa, we have travelled 5 times to Namibia, South Africa and Botswana, countries we have fallen in love with. The American Southwest was added to the list as it reminds us very much of Africa, with the red rock, the colours of the desert, and the wide open spaces with fresh air."
