About

All work created by Harry Peckover unless stated otherwise

Hello and thank you for visiting my website. My name is Harry Peckover and I am a photographer.

I believe appreciating the everyday details is an important skill and I try to utilise this in both my images and the shooting philosophy behind them. Many of my shots are a catalogue of me attempting this by examining subjects often considered mundane from a differing perspective.

As a kid I always enjoyed being creative whether it was in the form of dreaming up characters, worlds or simply toying with ideas. Though I did (and still do) enjoy drawing, I have a condition which makes holding a pen over a long period of time painful. This setback also prevented me from taking up a musical instrument. Luckily one day I discovered photography and was instantly ensnared in capturing what I saw around me. In many ways I haven't changed much since then. Photography combined my passions for visual art, technical understanding but most importantly of all it wasn't painful. Finally I had a way of expressing myself. I am grateful I was able to harness this passion and use it to create what you see here on my website. I hope you enjoy browsing my pictures as much as I enjoyed taking them.
