About Colleen Slater
Colleen Slater is a professional, freelance nature and portrait photographer.
‘With a background in Fine Art painting, I have lived in Brighton since 1978 and been working as a photographer since 2006. I have a particular interest in macro photography and through my images, hope to draw attention to the ordinary, often unnoticed things in the everyday world which appear extraordinary and sometimes unworldly when seen through a macro lens’.
Colleen lectures on macro photography and tutors digital imaging software, including Lightroom and Photoshop, tailoring lessons to individual requirements and also accepts commissions for event photography and portraiture. She is an Associate of the Royal Photographic Society whose work is regularly shown in International exhibitions and used in various publications.
‘My passion for wildlife developed during my childhood in Monmouthshire, where I spent much of my time outdoors, wandering the countryside and exploring with my brother. We dammed streams to make small lakes, investigated ponds teeming with life, fished for sticklebacks and caught grasshoppers in our hands. I was aware of all the nuances of the changing seasons as life came and went through the year and was fascinated by it all. I have a deep concern for environment issues and through my photographs I enjoy sharing my love of the natural world. I hope to bring attention to the many fascinating aspects of the natural world that are all around us but which often go unnoticed.
