Beata Moore is a professional photographer and author. Commissions by publishers and advertising agencies helped to establish her reputation as a landscape and architectural photographer. Beata is an author of five coffee table books and two visitor guidebooks.
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.
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. Her photographs and articles have been published in numerous publications and used by multiple organisations. She undertakes commissions for a wide range of clients and supplies images to stock agencies. Beata’s images have been widely exhibited at galleries across the UK, including the Photographers’ Gallery and OXO Gallery in London, and are held in private collections in the USA, UK and Europe. She is also regularly asked to judge many prestigious photo competitions, such as the UK Landscape Photographer of the Year.
Having learned her craft with film cameras, both 35mm and medium format, she now works exclusively with digital cameras. Currently her equipment list comprises of Canon DSLRs and mirrorless bodies, Canon and Tamron lenses from wide angle to a 300mm, Lee and Hoya filters, Lowepro backpacks, as well as Manfrotto and Gitzo tripods.
Varsovian by birth, a self-confessed Anglophile, Beata lives in Kingston-upon-Thames, England with her husband John. When she is not working, she likes to swim, snorkel and be near the sea to witness and experience its immense power. She is very passionate about creative freedom; freedom to evolve as a result of pushing photographic boundaries, underpinned by her endless enthusiasm and curiosity.
