This year, we’re thrilled to be joined by a relatively new frequent face at Art On the Exchange: Kersten Howard.
Kersten spent most of his childhood in Lamphey, Pembrokeshire, and was introduced to the area’s beauty by his grandparents during their weekly Sunday afternoon walks along the coastal path. He discovered photography some time later, when the pressures of work kept him away from his scenic home for over two decades. He eventually decided to quit his job and become a professional photographer.
In early 2014, Kersten became an Associate of The Societies of International Nature and Wildlife Photographers – ASINWP. He’s had images placed highly in the International Photography Salon’s photography competition, the Fine Art Photography Awards and the Epson International Pano Awards, among others. You can also find his work in a number of different photography magazines published across the UK.
Kersten has dabbled in most forms of photography going, but his main focus has always been on seascapes and landscapes. He moved back to Pembrokeshire and remained there for just over 13 years, before deciding that it was time for yet another change of scenery.
In February 2018, after almost a year of planning, Kersten moved to the south shores of Loch Lomond in Scotland. He planned to spend the first 6-8 months getting settled in and learning the area, but decided that by Autumn he needed to get to work photographing the new scenes that surrounded him.
Kersten will be at Art On the Exchange on The Royal Exchange in Glasgow on the 6th and 7th April, selling prints of his fine art landscape photography.
Why not come down and say hello?
