Kirkbymorside CC: Glenys Garnett – ‘Get Creative…’, Thursday 17th March 2022, 7:30pm

Glenys Garnett is a visual artist who uses photography as her primary medium to express creative ideas around nature and the natural environment.  She employs a variety of in-camera techniques such as ICM, multiple exposure and the use of characterful vintage lenses, to achieve a wide range of visual effects. 

‘…I am not a purist about photography, it is simply a medium. I use the camera as a tool, the first part of the process of producing an image, often with an artistic intent rather than a documentary capture…’

Glenys will begin with an introduction to her work and creative influences, before moving on to provide practical instruction in the use of composites – both in-camera, and via photoshop – plus alternative techniques like scanning and the use of wet processes such as cyantope.  A passionate educator, Glenys is happy to share the detail of how she achieves particular effects, and will reference the work of other photographers, videos and books that people may find helpful.

Glenys started her own business in 2011 after obtaining a First Class BA (Hons) Degree in Graphic Communication at Leeds Metropolitan University and Batley School of Art & Design.  She lives and works in Wakefield as a full-time freelance Photographer, Artist and Graphic Designer working mostly in the digital medium.  Glenys can’t remember a time when she wasn’t interested in Photography or Art: 

…I am fortunate to have owned a camera for most of my life and have always documented my walks and travels around the UK and abroad…
