Location Photography - Marion Sidebottom

Marion Sidebottom

Photographer & Artist

My location photography embraces the concept of ‘Topophilia’ which comes from the Greek word topos "place" and -philia, "love of" and means a strong sense of place. Through careful research and spending time on location I create images which aim to capture the essence of a place and make connections with the viewer. These connections could be cultural, historical, environmental, aesthetic or emotional. I hope that my images can evoke a sense of well-being, a desire to visit or a need to protect a place. I am commissioned for many different purposes such as promoting a tourist destination, help conservation of a beautiful landscape or habitat, to record a location at a point in time or to promote the sale of land or property. I aim to create a unique viewpoint or perspective to emphasise the features that makes a place special. This is achieved through sound knowledge of technical and compositional techniques, using natural light to the best effect and creative post production.

Visual images are a powerful tool to tell your story on a personal or organisational level. My clients include local authorities, tourist offices, the National Trust, Heritage sites, Environmental charities and the City of London Epping Forest. Awards include finalist and highly commended in the International Garden Photographer of the Year 9, Commended in IGPOTY 10 and winner of the Forest Stewardships Photography competition in 2015. My work has been featured in the East Anglian Daily Times, Essex Life Magazines, Pro Arb magazine amongst other publications.
