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.

Pauline has embraced the change to digital photography and enjoys the many creative  advantages it has .  She is currently working on a commission from the Rural Life Museum in Glastonbury which is undergoing a major renewal and will reopen in the spring of 2017.

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 Gallery of the Somerset Guild of Craftsmen in Broad St, Wells
