RICHARD GEMMELL

Where you can find me

I don’t have a studio but can arrange to meet or to have photos printed on request. Over the past ten years I have successfully exhibited at the annual OSPA Art Exhibition in Onewhero and also for the past three years at the Raglan Arts Weekend during Anniversary Weekend in Raglan.

About

My name is Richard Gemmell. I am a retired hill country sheep-farmer who now lives beside the harbour in Raglan. Having worked outdoors for my working life I have developed an affinity for, and love of, the land.

I enjoy all photography but most of my images are of the landscape. I especially like an image which manages to tell a story… which captures the feeling or mood of a place, or of a moment in time. Transient images are special because they are temporary and will not be seen again. The camera is special because it can record these precious moments.
