UK portrait photographer, Bella West's work draws the viewer in to create an emotive response through her use of location, light, style and timeless, yet current, nostalgia, providing a definitive and unique quality to her images.
To truly appreciate light and space, Bella’s portraits are all shot on location, using the elements, seasons, tone and colour. Her flair for quiet observation enables her to compose images within her camera with little intrusion. Introducing fresh ideas and concepts to each assignment – from weddings to portraiture and fine art commissions – Bella’s style of photography is driven by her ethos of producing current imagery that retains a strong classical edge.
The result is beautifully observed, bespoke, individual and to be cherished. Bella’s work is exhibited extensively and published in print and online, and her work takes her around the world as an image maker, lecturer and judge. Bella holds a Fellowship with the British Institute of Professional Photography with a collection of natural light portraits of children.
