The Photographer’s Studio opened its doors to the public last week with a unique show of ground-breaking work by Isle of Wight photographer, Julian Winslow.
The noted Island photographer – who came to public attention with his commercial and editorial work – has turned his attention to time, memory and the moment with his personal output.
Drive by Shooting
The series entitled “Drive by Shooting” is a response to the childhood memory of driving to Compton Bay with his family and noticing that how at a particular speed you could “see through” the hedges to the veiled landscape beyond.
Truly original images of the Island
This has culminated as a series of landscape images where subtle tones and vivid colours blend across huge prints to reveal a hidden Island with impressionistic energy. There is a tremendous sense of space and time captured within these truly original images of the Island.
The show opened on Thursday 8th December and runs until the end of the year.
Open Tuesday – Saturday each week. Doors open at 10am until 5pm and entry is free.

You can find The Photographer’s Studio above the E-bike store ‘Powerbike World’ in the Island’s less-fashionable quarters of Lake.
The Photographer’s Studio (TPS) provides space to those interested in this popular art form to indulge their passion and interest.
Work at your own pace

Helping you set up for a studio portrait or still life shoot. Provide tips for improving your digital image processing techniques to printing out your final picture on a large format printer.
Just call up and book yourself in for an evening. It’s open to everyone.
A factory for creativity
Owner Simon Wells said,
“Instead of handing a file over to a printer and hoping the results are what you imagined, TPS see the process through from start to finish, learning along the way.
“We already have individuals coming each week to develop their ideas. Taking photographs in our huge studio space, developing their skills and producing products from prints to wallpaper.
“It’s become a factory for creativity. Our facilities, space and equipment – that are beyond the practical reach of most – gives them that ability to experiment and the chance to develop a new, and potentially, professional direction. We have done our best to keep the prices low so individuals can free themselves from budget concerns and concentrate on getting their work completed without braking a piggy bank or two.”
After closing at 5pm for an hours break for dinner. TPS opens its doors again at 6pm until 9pm to individuals for projects and training. Prices and booking details available by contacting TPS directly.
