Creative Eye

We look for personal expression in which the photographer seeks to stimulate the imagination and arouse the emotions of the viewer.

About the Creative Eye Group

Originally conceived in 1991 the Creative group (as it was known then) was formed to give members more freedom in their photographic visions.

Our aim is to encourage the development of photography as a means of expression and as a vehicle for the author to make a personal photographic statement. The medium can be print or projected image, monochrome or colour, for it is the personal input of the photographer which makes the description of creative appropriate. We think imagination is the key to creative photography and is surely unique to each of us. It is often said that two photographers standing side by side will not see the same picture. The creative photographer will think that bit differently; see that bit differently and consequently end up with a more unusual, interesting or thought provoking interpretation. The creative process can be in-camera or processing in the digital or analogue darkroom.
