About Sue Butler
I’m a self taught amateur photographer & have always been interested in art and photography. My first art competition was won at the age of ten with a nature diary based on the book “Diary of an Edwardian Lady” by Edith Holden.
Over the years my love of art and photography increased when I bought my Olympus Epl-5 after much deliberation & more recently Olympus OMD 5 MKII
My style of photography is very personal to me with macro being my favourite way to capture the beauty of nature. I am always looking for the small intricate details that people just seem to pass by and focus on their individual beauty and colours.
I love taking pictures of the different seasons but in Yorkshire we very rarely get any snow in the winter so each year I yearn for snow or sharp frosts! To satisfy the loss of colour in winter, I bought a light box in 2016 and have been experimenting with different ways of photography. My experimentation has lead me to taking a selection of photographs entitled Light & Ice, using flowers encased in ice to preserve everlasting beauty and stunning textures and colours.
