About my work

Although I can turn my hand to most areas of photographic work I specialise in a few specific areas of imaging to ensure I produce my best work at all times without compromise.

Project & Personal I am inextricably drawn to trees which frequently feature in my personal and commercial work.  No matter what I am photographing - inevitably a tree will appear at some point.

I frequently exhibit my work and all images are limited editions, available to purchase framed or mounted.

I am happy to be consulted to find a suitable print that works with your home and decor or business/offices and I  supply several local customers and those who require a bespoke piece of work.

Framed or Mounted prints from my website can be purchased from £30 (inc VAT)  Pleae e-mail me on rachel@markjwallace.com if you wish to purchase a print.

 

Lifestyle & Equine Portraits is an area where I can indulge my passion for working with people and horses to produce beautiful pictures that capture the unique relationship between horse and owner.

Working with my client and their horse (or other animal friend) I spend up to 2 hours photographing in a variety of locations using available light and backgrounds in the clients home, yard or field. The images are viewed on a password encrypted website on line and can be purchased either as one-off prints framed or mounted and professionally printed by myself, or as digital images to be printed off and/or shared with friends, family and others.

Prices start at £65 for a Photoshoot lasting around 2 hours with 2 changes of clothing and a complimentary framed photograph 12 x 10"

 

 

Farewell Photography I was one of the first UK photographers to offer the service as a speciality rather than an add on. I believe that photographs of a funeral are an immense help to the immediately bereaved and a touching tribute to and memory of the deceased and their life.  

I featured in an Episode of "Dead Good Job" a BBC2 production on the different aspects of the funeral industry and I have also written several articles for magazines within the funeral industry.

I work with discretion, sensitivity and with my heart to offer positive and uplifting images of an emotional day. The images are then chosen by myself and made into a beautiful, modest sized Memory Book which is personally delivered by myself as a keepsake to be looked at and talked through, thus enabling and assisting in the grieiving process and providing a great comfort to the bereaved.

Prices for photographing a service and producing a beautiful Memory/Celebration Book  -  that can also be shared on-line - start at £595 for service and burial/cremation including a beautiful album of images and a private on-line album to share with friends and family.

I also offer training days for photographers aspiring to go into this sensitive and specialised area of photography.
