Artist of the Week: Philippa Gedge

We're very pleased to celebrate Philippa Gedge, London based photographer, as our Artist of the Week this week!
Philippa Gedge
Philippa's passion is portraits, and from this stems her commissioned work: weddings, events, PR & commercial photography. Her passion and ability is evident in all her work, and this can be seen in her Shed profile images, which have the feel and insight of portraits - of animals, birds, objects, & landscapes. The images allow us a brief moment of voyeurism into the life of something - and in that moment we are closer to their reality than we have ever been.

Of her own work, Philippa says: "As long as there is life in the images I am happy. Life isn't just about the sitter's face but light and emotion too".

Her most recent project has been as one of 6 photographers for ITV's Britain's Best Dish, currently being screened on ITV, weekdays at 5pm. We'll be bearing more about her experience of this project later in the week, which has unearthed a desire in Philippa to explore the world of food photography.

She has a fantastic blog, and a website (new website in production and coming soon!), so make sure you have a look at both, they are well worth it. You can also see more of her non-commercial work on her Shed Profile, where you can order and buy prints. Philippa will be guest blogging this week, and as usual we'll also be showcasing her work and celebrating her as a very talented Shed Creative!
