Announcement   London's first and only professional park landscape photographer. Max is a large format photographer dedicated to capturing the beauty of London parks, gardens and nature reserves through the seasons. With an in-depth understanding of light and weather he aims to show familiar places as never seen before, atmospheric, evocative and surprisingly wild.
He currently works with a wooden field camera on 5x4" and 6x12cm film, a slow and exacting process which produces unrivaled image quality.

His London park images have been represented in the Landscape Photographer of the Year exhibition, and in the International Garden Photographer of the Year for three years running.

These photographs are a selection from some of his landscape projects in south London, including Brockwell Park, One Tree Hill and Dulwich Wood. Also included are wild upland landscapes from the Elan Valley, mid Wales which he frequently visits and images from one-off trips to Scotland and Norway.

With many year's experience in printing from film, his original reproductions are beautiful artworks, carefully prepared and mounted with unique hand-written calligraphic titles and signatures.

Most of the prints are made to order and are available in many other sizes. For further information, please visit www.maxarush.com

About

London's secret pastoral beauty

I've been exhibiting my London park photographs for almost as long as I've been photographing London parks. I’ve been lucky enough to get a little commissioned work from London councils, park authorities and magazines, but I love making and showing real prints on walls, and want to make my work available to as many fellow park and landscape enthusiasts as possible.

I began with markets and fairs near my first location, Brockwell Park in Lambeth, and had a stall at the famous Lambeth Country Show.
I then worked on two large exhibitions of the Brockwell Park landscapes, which were quite successful, before slowly starting to work outwards and feature other south London beauty spots. I’ve had a parallel project running in mid Wales, where I also had a one-man landscape exhibition, although unfortunately I don’t get as many opportunities to go there and run smaller events.

Since my first show I've studied the art of printing in some depth and now control every part of the process, from scanning the original film to mounting and framing the print. It's a complicated process but vital to give a sense of the depth and brilliance of film photography.

Initially I was sceptical about producing cards or other inexpensive reproductions, but realising that there weren't any professionally produced park greetings cards around, I had a go at making some one Christmas and found they were very well received. I've since refined the design and production process a lot and now distribute them to local shops along with south London calendars.

I've had my own website since the beginning, but as it was designed to be more of a portfolio than a shop, I decided to open an Etsy shop this year and make the process of choosing and paying for prints and cards easier for customers. I'm also keen to make links with other artists and craftspeople and find new opportunities to promote my locations internationally. I’m only weeks into this at the moment, but I’m already really happy with the way Etsy works and how well-designed the site is. For once I feel like I can completely control and adjust my shop in real, immediate ways to make it more attractive and easier to find.
