'Short Eared Parliament' (Photoshoot with Gary Peters) by Shane Wilson

‘Short Eared Parliament’ is a large sculpture with several perpendicular planes which exacerbate the high contrast nature of the medium and make photographing the whole extremely difficult.

I turned to Gary Peters Photography with the challenge and he delivered admirably.

'Self Portrait' - Photography Session with Gary Wildman

Following the completion of any sculpture, it is important to have it photographed professionally.

Gary Wildman photographed 'Rest and Sing' a number of years ago and I called upon him again to photograph both 'Gaia' and 'Self Portrait.'

Gary took the utmost care, spending hours getting the lighting and exposures just right, to perfectly capture the sculptures as digital images - not an easy thing to do!

He is a true professional and a joy to work with! Visit his website at
