Richard Freestone is a fine art photographer and printmaker specialising in C19th printing processes particularly the Platinum/Palladium process, which he also teaches. It is the return to the hand crafted element of photographic printing from digital, that interests him as well as the archival stability of the prints. The Platinum/Palladium print is still the only process that will outlast the paper it is printed on. His choice of botanical subjects brings together two interests, Gardening and Photography.
As well as printing his own artwork, he prints for an international clientele including The National Portrait Gallery, Magnum Photos as well as individual photographers and artists.
