“Tides and Tempests”
Rachael Talibart will be making a very welcome return to Midhurst on 14th March with another watery presentation entitled “Tides and Tempests”.
Rachael Talibart grew up on the South Coast and studied at Southampton University. Much of her early childhood was spent at sea which has left her with a life-long fascination for the ocean in all its forms, but especially in stormy weather.
However, her first career was as a solicitor in the City of London. After practising law for several years, she started training other lawyers and for seven years worked as a professional trainer. Since leaving the City, she has supplemented her LLB with a BA in English and an MA in Victorian literature and art.
During the City years, Rachael’s friends and colleagues were used to seeing her return from trips with bags full of exposed film; the developing sometimes cost more than the trip! In 2008, she converted to digital and she says that is when the obsession really set in.
Although Rachael travels widely, she retains a special fondness for the South of England and many of her images are created there. For Rachael, nothing beats a day on an empty shore, the wilder the weather the better, and this is reflected in her work.
Rachael is a judge for the Surrey Photographic Association, a Licentiate of the Royal Photographic Association and a proud member of Landscapes by Women.
