Introducing Rob. Local photographer and thoroughly nice bloke. FROM is delighted to offer a range of his beautiful imagery and here’re a few words from the man himself…
“In the 1990s, I left corporate life to set up a small, water cooler business, which thrived. When I finally sold that business seven years ago, I decided it was time to devote my effort to the thing that I really loved – and Rob Wheal Photography was born.
Since then, I’ve developed a successful photography business that encompasses weddings, family portraits and commercial photography. Along the way I’ve met some wonderful people. That’s got to be one of the best aspects of the job.
I grew up in West London, and loved doing so, but I feel that Thame, and the surrounding villages, are a very special part of the country. We’re privileged to live in a beautiful landscape. It’s under threat at the moment from the prospect of over development in housing and supermarkets, and I feel very protective about the High Street, which I feel is almost unique in its concentration of high quality, independently owned businesses, such as FROM.
I’ve been delighted at the response to my photographs currently on sale in FROM. These are selected from the images that I take just for sheer pleasure. Many are taken locally, and reflect my love of woodland and architecture (although rarely together!). Others are taken around the world, but especially in southern France; another great love. I hope that you get as much enjoyment from sharing them, as I had when taking them. If you haven’t yet seen them – then please go and have a browse. They’re all printed on sumptuous, very heavyweight, archival quality paper for you to enjoy for many years to come.”
Rob has a passion for capturing the great outdoors, both locally and around the world. As well as wider landscape shots, he likes to get up close to the detail in his subjects, so close that in his cow picture, he had to stop to wipe the lens when the cow licked it. ‘These images reflect the things I love to do, and I hope that you find them beautiful too’.
Oh we do Rob. We do.
