A Collective Experience

GreySkies, a photography collective based in Edinburgh, I’ve been hinting at this for a number of months now but we’ve only just decided to go live.

Our manifesto reads:

GreySkies is a small group of Edinburgh-based photographers with a diverse approach to photography.

Our aim is to collectively develop our photography over time, work together on themes, sharing our work with a wide audience via the internet, exhibitions and other mediums.

Note that although our base theme is street photography we don’t outrightly declare the collective as just about street photography, we all have other photographic pursuits we want to follow. We were also keen to have everyone in the collective living local, the world is large but lets talk about one place and see how it looks.

Although we came together through a common interest we do have our different ways.

Our approaches to the genre are quite different as well, we can be up close and personal or distant and contemplative and also quite surreal.

A couple of us are still film enthusiasts spending time developing film using traditional processes and printing techniques.

In the next few months we will be adding additional portfolios and projects with an aim to blog about exhibitions or events we attend so watch this space ….

Anyone revisiting this blog may notice something a little different, the collectives name. We decided after a few days of chatter that we should change the name and felt that ‘GreySkies‘ describes our Edinburgh quite well and helps explains our use of flash.
