Adam Bruderer AdvDip (Photography)
Photographer. Manchester, UK.
Although raised in London, Adam's base for many years has been Manchester, a city which is the location for many of his photographs.
Having developed a long standing interest in photography into a daily passion, Adam has recently developed a keen interest in photographing wildlife including our feathered friends. Seaside and landscape shots are also featured due to a love of coastal and countryside walks.
In 2018, Adam successfully completed an Advanced Diploma in Photography from the Institute of Photography.
Developing his passion for photography has led to Adam's work being including in a number of exhibitions and publications in recent years. This includes the Open Up North exhibition (Kendal Brewery Arts Centre) in 2011; the Open Contemporary Exhibition (Stockport Art Gallery) in 2012 and 2013, Stockport Open Exhibition (Stockport Art Gallery) in 2016, 2017 and 2018; the Altrincham In Bloom, H2O and Birds, Bees & Butterflies exhibitions (Art with a Heart Gallery) in 2013 and 2015; and the Waterside Open Art Exhibition (Waterside Arts Centre) in 2014.
Adam was also proud to be selected for inclusion in the 'Hour Manchester' book in 2012 which raised funds for the Prince's Trust.
Combining his interest in real ale and photography, Adam has an ongoing project to photograph the UK's public houses, leading to work being published in the Good Beer Guide, CAMRA magazines, and in a commission for a book on the life and times of London hotels.
Opportunities to be the official photographer for conferences through his day job have also enhanced Adam's style in a different area of work.
Since 2008, Adam has been using a Pentax K10d and in 2015 Adam upgraded to a Pentax K3 and is a strong believer in continuing to improve his technical skills, and so prefers to keep post-processing to a minimum - better to be out there taking shots than sitting in front of a computer!
What's in Adam's Kitbag?
