Guildford resident, Anna Saverimuttu, has been a professional photographer for over 25 years, working across genres including corporate portraiture, families, events and PR. She also runs beginners’ photography workshops, helping students to easily master their cameras.
When engaged in personal work, Anna’s inspiration comes from photographing the natural world, especially flowers and plants. Her approach involves creatively capturing their shapes, colours and textures through the precise use of light and composition, combined with an understanding of the camera controls that will yield the best results.
For Anna, her camera is a means of connecting with nature on a more meaningful level by conveying mood and atmosphere and what Aristotle described as “inward significance” rather than merely showing “the outward appearance of things.”
She believes that photography should be taught simply and clearly so students can get past the technical barriers and fully immerse themselves in the creative process.
