Speaker: Neil Hulme - “Moments in Mono’ @ Wilmslow Guild

Neil is a precision engineer by trade who lives near to Warrington and took up photography about ten years ago when he reluctantly decided that it was time to ‘hang up his boots’ from playing rugby union which he had done into his mid – forties.

He attended a night school photography course and was immediately hooked and went on to develop his exceptional style of long exposure, minimalist, black and white photography. Neil’s work has gained him an international reputation and is featured in several national and international magazines and one of his images appeared on the front cover of the Long Exposure Photography Masters 2018 book.
