About the photographer

I have always had a love for photography, travelling to Mediterranean cities and wanting to capture their essence is what started it. I have an urge to photograph practically everything that I see and I am constantly tracking new locations that I want to photograph.

I am influenced by the past, particularly the victorian era, the 1920’s, 1940’s and the 1950’s. Before I start a project or a shoot I research extensively and create mood boards, this is to help me reminisce and then translate my imagination. I am profoundly inspired by Romanticism, music, old masters in painting, various fine art, documentary and fashion photographers. I am constantly seeking new practices and processes to improve my style of photography, helping me to confine my own personal direction. 

In 2011, I began studying towards my BA in photography at the University of Kent, currently I am in my third and final year. I have been lucky enough to work with other professional photographers, to shoot weddings for the first two summers of my degree and to now have the chance to exhibit my fine art photography in London this May. 

I hope you enjoy looking at my blog

Kind Regards,

Rachel Stonestreet.

  1. As one of my beloved followers, I would like to extend my sincere thanks and gratitude by sharing with you my exciting news of becoming a newly published author! And, of course, I wanted you to be among the very first to get a chance to read the rest of my debut novel, The Legacy of Blood, now available in e-book format.

    (No worries if you don’t have a Kindle or other e-reader device, they have free ones to download on your computer. I went on Amazon and downloaded their “Kindle for PC” absolutely free! Love it! Here’s the link if you need it: http://www.amazon.com/gp/kindle/pc/download .)

    Again, I want to thank you kindly for all the support. And you never know, as some of my followers have told me, you could say you’ve had a big hand in helping make Shelby Westland a household name! 😛
