Robert Broughton

FINE ART PHOTOGRAPHER

Biography

Robert Broughton (b. 1966) is more than just a professional photographer; he is a passionate storyteller of avian life, interlacing the essence of the British landscape into his narrative.

Early childhood experiences forged an intimate bond with the land, nurturing his intrinsic appreciation for the delicate balance of the natural world. This reverence for the earth’s equilibrium is the heartbeat of his artistic journey, infusing his photographic work with a profound sense of place and purpose.

Robert’s love affair with photography began in his teenage years when he diligently learned the craft of film, black-and-white processing, and printing. From 1993 to 1997, he pursued this further by establishing and operating a photography business. However, as life’s demands grew, he transitioned into business management and then formed his own company in 2009, teaching mindfulness. Throughout this period, his camera remained a constant companion, a silent witness to his unwavering dedication to the art form.

In 2015, a new chapter unfolded as Robert re-embraced photography professionally. Immersing himself in the advancements of digital technology, he embarked on extensive travels across North England, Scotland, and the majestic landscapes of the Nepalese Himalayas. These journeys were not just about capturing beautiful images but about immersing himself in the landscapes, the cultures, and the stories they held. They rejuvenated his spirit and refined his artistic vision, allowing him to fully commit to his lifelong passion.

With his renewed focus on photography, Robert has actively engaged with the art community, participating in open studio events and showcasing his work in a solo exhibition titled ‘Presence’ at The Station Art Gallery in Richmond, Yorkshire, in 2021. His images have garnered individual sales, private commissions, and an ongoing private residency project.

Residing near York, Robert continues to explore the intersection of art, the natural world and spirituality through his lens. His work captures the ethereal spirit of birds set against the immutable beauty of the land. The vast, open skies, a signature element in his photography, echo the depth and complexity of his vision. Each image is not just a picture but a profound meditation on nature’s splendour, inviting viewers to step into a world where art and the natural world merge seamlessly.
