About PhotoStroud


In October 2007 PhotoStroud presented a festival of world class photography in the market town of Stroud in Gloucestershire UK.

Since then it has been active in staging one off exhibitions ranging from works made by local photographers to images by Don McCullin and Andy Goldsworthy.

This site had been constructed to encourage people who have been enthusiastic about PhotoStroud to continue sharing their work, see the work of other photographers and, perhaps, try out new styles of photography, get a little feedback and develop their work.

Living in or near to Stroud is not a requirement. We enjoy seeing high quality, innovative photography wherever it comes from.

This month PhotoStroud is featuring photographs from Fred Chance and Kel Portman.

Kel and Fred are managing the process of featuring photographers on the PhotoStroud site and have started off with a selection of their own work just to make sure the system works and to kick start a series of on line exhibition features.

Kel and Fred have an interest in Landscape Photography in common but their approach to it is very different. Kel's photography is inextricably linked to his love of land and his experiences of walking and paying close attention to the detail of the landscape he passes through. Fred's work usually involves people and his landscape photography tends to concentrate on the relationships between people and their environment. Together they are showing some work which reflects those styles and you can see it through the "Featured Photographers" page.
