Rich Gresswell – local landscape and nature photography.”You can buy my pictures as art greetings cards for all occasions. Instagram link:

Ian Lightfoot – “My birds of prey pictures form a series called “Harvest Moon”. Paintings depict wildfowl that roam our countryside – a tradition pre-dating Thomas Bewick that satisfied the demand for adorning walls of stately homes. Contemporary eyes see differently; the fox, for instance, or the badger – formed by pastoral politics. “Harvest Moon” is a series of nocturnes for sale that celebrate these wonderful creatures.
