Ian Short Photography
Hello and welcome to my website. I have lived in the north of England all my life and in Richmond, North Yorkshire for the last twenty years. As a geographer and photographer I have happily walked many miles across dales and glens, hills, mountains and fells. Exploring the British landscape, both the natural environment and the ways in which people have lived in and shaped the landscape over time, has been my abiding interest. It is this engagement with the natural world which has been the greatest influence on my creative development as a photographer.
I have exhibited in several galleries in North Yorkshire and Scotland. As well as commissions for a highland estate, I have run photographic holidays in the Highlands of Scotland. I run courses for individuals and small groups and founded and lead The Green Photography Group in Richmond, North Yorkshire.
My latest project has resulted in “Seasons on the Hill Farm”, a book that captures the essence of the year of a hill farming family in the wild and beautiful Birkdale the most northerly dale in the Yorkshire Dales National Park.
Up to date I have sold over 8oo copies and many have been purchased by overseas customers who love the dales of northern England.
All images in the galleries are for sale as professionally printed photographs, double mounted, titled and signed by the photographer. Print sizes and prices are shown on the gallerys.
