Ipswich based professional photographer

Owens is based in central Ipswich and is able to cover most of East Anglia and forays into London for commission work. He employs whatever cameras and equipment are required to get the best for his clients ranging from large format, medium format and 35mm film plus digital.

He has been making images since 1968 and after 11 years of embracing digital photography stepped back into using film for major arts assignments. The use of large and medium format film for significant bodies of work is reflected in the care he applies when using digital equipment on relevant assignments.

He made the initial archive of the East Contemporary Art collection held by University of Suffolk, and has made archive records of rare collections of art acquisitions held by Colchester & Ipswich Museum Service and of room settings in Christchurch Mansion.

He is a member of a local collaborative group of contemporary amateur and professional artists working on long term documentary projects and actively supports the East Anglian Arts communities.

Owens is a member of the Royal Photographic Society and holds an ARPS Distinction. He is the East Anglia regional organiser of the RPS Contemporary special interest group.

He graduated with a BA(Hons) Photography from University Campus Suffolk in 2014. In 2013 he was awarded Student of the Year.

He delivers ad-hoc technical services to the University of Suffolk as the operator of their Chromograph S3400 drum scanner and delivers lectures on scanning to students on the BA(Hons) Photography course.
