Bertram Park (1883-1972), Photographer

Sitter in 11 portraits
Artist associated with 95 portraits
Having started in the family firm, manufacturers of artist's materials, Park developed an interest in photography and became a professional portraitist. He was a founder member of the London Salon of Photography in 1910. Park set up studios on Dover Street, London with Marcus Adams and his wife Yvonne Gregory in 1919. He was successful, being obliged to have up to five sittings a day to satisfy the demand. He photographed the British Royal Family, and his reputation was such that various European crowned heads would come annually to his studio to be photographed. His stylish and beautifully composed portrait studies more often relied on dramatic lighting than on elaborate backgrounds.
