Gareth Thornley Photography
Welcome to my photographic website
As a student I studied Photographic Technology at Manchester Polytechnic and still remember discussing digital imagery - "that'll never catch on" we all said! My main photographic interest has always been for the wild places, the less people the better! So after leaving Manchester Polytechnic finding a job as a landscape photographer was not possible. For many years I repaired camera equipment for a living, before making a life changing move to run a pub in the Lake District.
I have been priveliged to live in Eskdale for the last 10 years, so it is no suprise that many of the pictures on the site feature views around this wonderful valley and of the fells which tower over it.
As the chef at Brook House Inn I have spent many an evening glancing up at Scafell, watching it turn red in the evening sun, wishing I could get out with the camera, but like everyone in this hectic age, time is always limited.
I have been a keen photographer for over 20 years and have amassed a large collection of images, many bring back happy memories, some are nostalgic, and of a very few I am truly proud. On these pages some of my images are displayed for sale, please click on the area of interest on the menu above.
My photographs are professionally printed by Farnell Colour Laboratories in Lancaster on quality photographic paper. The prints are supplied unframed but can be framed upon request. Framed panoramic prints are collection only.
