Rachael Talibart is a professional photographer with a particular interest in the sea and the coast it carves. Her critically acclaimed photographs have been featured in the press all over the world. Rachael is represented by galleries in Europe and the USA, her work is frequently exhibited and her limited edition prints are collected internationally. She is the author of three monographs, including Sirens and, most recently, Tides and Tempests, and she writes for photography magazines.
Rachael grew up on the south coast of England. Her first career was as a solicitor in the City of London. During the City years, Rachael’s friends and colleagues were used to seeing her return from trips with bags full of exposed film; the developing sometimes cost more than the trip! In 2008, she converted to digital and she says that is when the obsession really set in. In 2000, Rachael left her City career and, after obtaining two more degrees, she now works full-time on her photography.
Much of Rachael’s early childhood was spent at sea. This has left her with a fascination for the ocean in all its forms, but especially in stormy weather. Rachael travels widely for her photographs but retains a special fondness for the South of England and many of her images are created there. For Rachael, nothing beats a day on an empty shore, the wilder the weather the better, and this is reflected in her work.
Rachael owns f11 Workshops, providing location and online photography training and she leads international photography tours for Ocean Capture. An experienced teacher and lecturer, Rachael is particularly interested in the creative aspects of photography. Rachael no longer enters competitions but has won numerous awards for her photography over many years, including Black and White Photographer of the Year and The Sunday Times Magazine Award, Landscape Photographer of the Year.
