Adrian Beasley

Adrian’s passion is landscape photography, coming from years of walking in the mountains of Snowdonia, but as an engineer Adrian also has a soft spot for photographing modern architecture, especially in black and white.

Adrian started photography seriously in 1995 working through the City & Guilds courses with much of his early work created in the darkroom. In 2000, with the arrival of his daughter, the bathroom darkroom was closed for good. However, being a software engineer by trade, he decided to embrace software completely and sold all his darkroom equipment in exchange for Photoshop and a large format scanner and printer. In 2002 Adrian started teaching C&G photography courses. Within a few years he progressed to hosting intensive Photoshop and Lightroom courses for Light and Land and on a one-to-one basis.

In 2016 Adrian left his "proper job" to take up photography full time. He achieved Adobe Certified Expert (ACE) status and now offers an extensive range of online and face to face training modules in photography, editing and printing. Adrian supplies training for many respected photographers and photo tour companies.

Adrian has achieved success in national competitions, often winning building and architecture rounds. He has exhibited and sold limited edition prints. In 2016 one of his pictures was selected for the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, selling out the limited edition.

Over the past few years Adrian's images have been getting darker as he explores the dark side of B&W photography. You can see more of Adrian’s work here
