Photography has been a passion of mine for more years than I care to remember!  Whether its getting up early (never easy!) on a cold November morning to capture the mists over the landscape, exploring a city for it's architecture and street shots or going in close with some macro work.  My favourite genre of photography has to be landscapes and to be outdoors surrounded by nature and the elements is so rewarding and good for the soul!   My favourite locations are the Highlands and Islands of Scotland, particularly in the winter when the harsh weather can often present many challenges but also some fantastic lighting and atmosphere.

  

All my images are taken as raw files and then processed using Adobe Photoshop CC, either as colour files or by converting them to black and white.  I moved to digital 15 years ago and have been using a Nikon D850, D500, a D90 converted to infrared.  However I have recently moved over to the mirrorless system with a Nikon Z6 and Z7ii which I am enjoying immensely.  Nikon Z lenses include 14-30, 24-120mm, 24-200mm and 100-400mm, plus a few others. 

 

I print all photographs myself; there is nothing more satisfying than seeing the final image emerge from the printer, the whole process is then complete!   I use A2 Professional Epson inkjet printers, Epson inks and archival photographic paper, particularly fine art baryta for black and white and cotton rag or textured museum paper for some of my colour work.  

I joined my first photographic club in the West Midlands in the 1980s and later, on moving to Worcestershire, I joined Kempsey Camera Club and have now been a member for 30 years!  I have had photographs accepted into many national and international exhibitions.  I was very honoured to have been invited to join Eyecon, a small group of experienced photographers, who regularly meet throughout the year to present and discuss their work. 

 

I am delighted to say I was awarded a Fellowship of the Royal Photographic Society for submitting a panel of 21 prints in the Landscape genre.  This project was undertaken and completed during the pandemic of 2020/21.  The pinnacle of the RPS awards and one that I always hoped I would achieve!  Prior to this I gained my Licentiateship of the Royal Photographic Society in 2006 with a selection of colour slides and I achieved an Associateship of the RPS in 2008 with a panel of fifteen macro flower photographic prints.  

 

I was shortlisted in the 2020, 2021 and 2022 Scottish Nature Photography Awards, and I have had photographs published in Outdoor Photography magazine.  As a result of my recent RPS Fellowship award I have had a 7-page feature in the magazine of the RPS Landscape Group.  I have had commissions from a local hospital to supply canvasses for their corridors and patient rooms and my photographs have appeared in calendars, diaries and magazines and in many private collections both in the UK and abroad.  I provided the front cover images for our local newspaper "The Pershore Times" for the last five years but have now stepped aside to enable me to concentrate on other projects.

Along with my husband, David, we sold images of our local area for many years under the name of Images of Worcestershire through the website and, until Covid arrived, through our shop in Pershore. However, in March 2023 we decided it was time to close the Images of Worcestershire website to allow us the time to devote to other interests and projects that we have become involved with.  We thank the many hundreds of customers who have bought our work over the years and hope they still enjoy looking at the imagery on their walls.


Jayne Winter Photography gives me the opportunity to showcase the much broader spread of my personal work. I hope you enjoy looking through my galleries. All images are available to purchase.
