My name is Rachel Cheer. I am based in Newbury, in Berkshire, and have worked here for 30 years. I specialize in Fine Art photography, black and white film photography and wedding/events. I am a member of The Royal Photographic Society, and have gained my LRPS. I also hold a BA Hons in Fine Art, specializing in photography. I have just recently gained 'Qualified Status' with The Guild of Professional Photographers.
I consider myself an artist first, using a camera as a painter would use their brush. I hold onto the true meaning of photography, capturing an image as it is, not creating and changing it in a computer. I can though, if required, use the computer to create images.
My main camera is an old Pentax K1000. Other cameras I use are : Samsung GX20, Pentax *ist, Bronica medium format, Holga, Zorki Range Finder.
