Michael Glenister has taken a career break in order to make art and write.

Formerly he had a successful career as corporate, lifestyle and architectural photographer.

Michael still pursues his favourite art form of analogue photography in his spare time. The mindfulness associated with making a photograph, from visualization to selecting the correct equipment, film and processing to finally hanging the print to dry has enabled Michael to rediscover the joy of being in control of the whole process.

“The final print produced needs to be a reflection of how a particular scene spoke to my soul.”

Michael has travelled extensively and has found in the desert of the UAE (the place he now calls home) a love for the textures and complexity of the Arabian sands.
