STEVE VARMAN LRPS

Photography

For nearly 15 years, I have been creatively exploring different genres of photography, always with a drive to create images that are unique and interesting (that’s the aim, at least!).

My work has earned distinctions and awards, including being a Finalist and twice Commended in the International Garden Photographer of the Year competition, as well as receiving a commendation from Pink Lady Food Photographer of the Year. I have also been honoured to have my images represent The Royal British Legion.

As a member of the Royal Photographic Society, I have been involved with editing and designing the RPS Creative Eye magazine since 2018. I have also served as Guest Design Editor for RPS Digital Imaging magazine.

I have been a camera club lecturer, and occasional judge, for several years. If you would like to book me for your club, please get in touch.

In addition to my backgrounds in nature, food, and editorial photography, I am excited to add Dog Portraiture to my portfolio. Please visit mt dedicated website, photopups.com for information, prices and booking.
