Stuart Marlin is an award-winning landscape, portrait, architecture, long exposure and travel photographer
who is becoming known for his giant sky astrophotography.
With over thirty years studying visual perception and neuroscience, his approach to photography often has an experimental scientific methodology. He sets a goal for his artistic vision and then through repeated experiments he works out the best methods for achieving those outcomes. Generously, Stuart is not afraid to share the results and his methods. You can always see a strong influence of his perception background in his work, with the play of light, colour and contrast. Many of his fine-art architectural images utilise unique, nonaccidental viewpoints.
Stuart carefully positions and angles his camera to achieve a photograph of the landscape that might be viewed by someone who happened to stop at that exact position and look up at just the right angle. You will also notice a symmetry in many of his images where elements are balanced to achieve a sense of harmony with objects and the landscape.
Stuart’s portrait work shows a love of the control of light that is achieved in studio photography, but he also brings experimental methods to his portraiture.
