Pauline Rook Photography

Pauline Rook is a professionally qualified photographer, living and working in Somerset. She specialises in portraiture but is equally well known for her rural documentary work.

Working on a dairy farm, brought out her passion for black and white photography as she sought to document the rapidly changing world around her. She studied at an advanced level  and learned the skills needed to take photographs in dark and difficult circumstances and to produce top level monochrome prints.

For her portrait work she has small studio in Lopen, but prefers to work on location using the beauty of Somerset to bring a unique look to every commission .

Her professional work started in the black and white darkroom and this experience is still a major influence on her work.

She has won many professional awards within the region, her work has been published in books and magazines. Pauline’s photographs can be seen at the Courthouse Gallery of the Somerset Guild of Craftsmen in Somerton and at the Shakspeare Glass Riverside Gallery in Taunton.

Exhibition now on at Museum of Somerset Taunton where my images of the excavations and landscapes of  Hinkley Point are on show.
