Simon Bruntnell has been shooting contemporary glass art since 1993 and in that time he has developed an understanding of this difficult meduim.
The photographic image of a work of art reaches a much wider audience than the physical piece itself. The relationship between the artist, the photographer, and their respective media is therefore a crucial one; doubly so when the artefact is formed from glass. The problems inherent in this most challenging of materials are many, the precise balance between reflected and transmitted light to name one.
Simon Bruntnell has during his career to date, developed into the specialist in this field bar none. The quality of his images is the result of an ability to work with the artist in developing an understanding of and approach to each object that has resulted in images that have been reproduced and deservedly appreciated worldwide.
His reputation has been established by word of mouth to the point where he is the simply the glass artist's photographer of choice.
