Katie Johnston: Resident Photographer for Beneath The Boughs

“I am a dedicated photography student based in Carlisle studying at the University of Cumbria. I am a colourful individual with a lot of passion in what I do. Whether I am planning a fine-art shoot on location, taking photos for an event or doing head-shots in the studio I will always perform to the best of my ability and produce beautiful photographs.”

‘Beneath The Boughs’: Inspiration Gallery

Fancy writing for ‘Beneath The Boughs‘ – our summer exhibition in the beautiful historic setting of Lowther Castle Gardens? We’re looking for poems inspired by the gardens, or that fit in with the feel of the gardens.

It doesn’t matter if you can’t get yourself there to write in situ. We’re bringing the gardens to you, with the gallery below. Have a browse, and let something spark your imagination!

(Don’t forget – although many of these photos feature a snowy landscape, the exhibition itself will take place over the summer, from July 19th – September 9th 2013.)

Still stuck for something to write? Check out our current monthly prompt to spark some more ideas here.

We have all the pictures up online, in our Launch Gallery, so you can catch up on all the excitement there. And if you were at the launch, head on over to check out the photos and relive the event!
