Finding the Real Magic

As a professional photographer, Simon Whalley pushes the boundaries to produce magical images of the natural world. His atmospheric photographs capture the essence of a landscape or place. By taking the road less travelled, Simon has an independent approach, seeing the beauty in difference.

His photographs fire the imagination and leave room for the viewer’s own interpretation. He seeks to reconnect people with nature. Simon questions the over-curated practices of the hierarchical art world. His approach to his art mirrors his approach to Leadership; he is collaborative, curious and questioning.
