Profile

Beata Moore is a professional photographer and author. Her work is diverse, from wider views to smaller details and abstract images, both in colour and black & white. She attained a postgraduate degree in botany and her photographs show a strong affinity towards the woodlands and the sea, but also a fascination with human ingenuity in creating architectural masterpieces. Commissions by publishers and advertising agencies helped to establish her reputation as a landscape and urban photographer.

Beata is particularly drawn to the subtleties of smaller details of landscape and architecture providing her with endless patterns, shapes, textures and colours. Strong composition and colour harmonies enable her to perfectly encapsulate the spirit of the places. When photographing the sea, she successfully interprets its ever changing moods and often abstracts away from the literal subject matter. While photographing land and forests, Beata explores the shadows and light trying to find interesting shapes, rhythm and forms. In urban landscapes she seeks a visual tension; high drama of noir approach allows her to reveal the best qualities of the buildings and other man made objects. In her impressionistic works her love of colour influenced by the paintings of Turner and Monet is visible.

Beata travels widely on both personal and commissioned projects for commercial, editorial and magazine related clientele. She has written seven books and a number of articles. Her photographs have been published in numerous magazines and books and her work has been exhibited at galleries across the UK. Beata lives in Kingston-upon-Thames, Surrey with her husband John.
