Multi-award winning photographer David Lloyd came to London from New Zealand in 1989 for a six-month trip and is still resident some twenty years later. Some of David's favourite places are Kenya, Rwanda, Uganda, Namibia, Botswana and Richmond Park near his home in London.
David became interested in photography at a young age and has owned a camera since the age of seven. He spent many years developing pictures in darkrooms before the advent of digital, and black and white photography became one of his early passions; a strong interest in natural history and design led to the photographic imagery he enjoys creating today. Although he has a preference towards black and white, colour also features strongly in his work.
David's images have been published widely in the press and photographic monthlies, including a recent issue of Black & White Photography Magazine. He has also enjoyed success in major competitions: he has been a finalist in the BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year on nine occasions, European Wildlife Photographer of the Year, Natures Best, and a highly commended in the British Wildlife Photographic Awards in its inaugural year.
In 2011, David gained a specially commended award in the Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition with A Flick of the Tail, a black and white image of a giraffe which was also chosen for that year's annual portfolio cover.
David has more than twenty years of knowledge in digital processing, using both Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Lightroom; the latter is his predominant processing tool today. His pictures are crafted over many days, even months, and in the manner of a portrait artist, he likes to spend as long as possible with his subject. These are photographs to give lasting pleasure, to be seen on walls in frames, rather than speedy recollections of a moment.
Acclaimed wildlife sculptor, Rosamond Lloyd (no relation), has been a gifted artist from childhood, inspired by her surroundings and her artist grandmother. After attaining a BA Honours degree from London University, she pursued a career in radio and studied for a Diploma in Law before returning to her first love of art and a sculpture apprenticeship. Her work rapidly attracted interest from both private collectors and galleries and she now works exclusively as a sculptor from her Oxfordshire studio. Her pieces are held in private collections both in the UK and abroad.
Sculpting in clay or wax and casting predominantly in bronze, Rosamond draws her inspiration from the natural world and particularly the relationship between parent and offspring. A vivid sense of attention to detail defines her sculptures, helping to capture the spirit and sense of her subject matter with accuracy and empathy. Her pieces are always very limited editions, cast using the ancient lost wax process. She also undertakes private commissions.
Rosamond was shortlisted for the David Shepherd Wildlife Artist of the Year Award and exhibited at the Mall Galleries, London. She is regularly invited to demonstrate and show her work at the prestigious Art in Action, the UK’s largest festival of master craftsmanship.
Rosamond has been spending time this year in Zambia, collecting material for a new body of sculpture and is delighted to be collaborating with David Lloyd in Bronze, Black & White. The show will present some of Rosamond's new pieces, together with a special commission by the Cotswold Wildlife Park, commemorating the birth of their first white rhino calf, which will also make its public debut at this show. Rosamond passionate about conservation and a donation of a percentage of the sale price on this piece will go to popular conservation charity Tusk.
