Evocation Images is the business name for photographs by Peter Walmsley.

Peter takes a variety of subjects but always aims to create a reaction with the viewer. So not just a plain seascape, but a dramatic sunrise. Not just a woodland scene but a carpet of bluebells. Says Peter: "Some photos are opportunistic - you just happen upon them. But most are preconceived. You know the picture you want; you just need the patience and tenacity to get it."

Peter also undertakes assignments on request such as music events for Farnborough Sixth Form College and a Supplier Conference for the Home Office which required a record of all the supplier companies receiving an award as well as informal shots of the participants. Said Ian Forster, Home Office Commercial Director: "Peter covered the annual Home Office Supplier Conference in July 2011. It was a packed room with difficult down lighting but he produced some great pictures which capture the participation of the attendees. We are very pleased with the photographs."

Gaining his LRPS in 2012, Peter has had work accepted in the 2015 RPS Biennial Competition which tours the UK into 2016. He has been awarded gold and silver medals in international salons and several photographs have been published on the prestigious 1x site - "the best photos on the web" which carries out stringent screening. Peter provides images to the microstock market through Shutterstock and has had work taken in in Costa Rica and Iceland published by the online travel magazine Travelbite.


Peter is a level 2 judge in the Southern Counties Photographic Federation, carrying out regular competition judgings around the southern UK camera clubs and occasional interclub competitions. He also undertakes speaking events on the microstock industry amongst other topics and is a Community Leader for Shutterstock. For further information, please use the e-mail address below.
