See the world through our eyes

About Us

“Wandering the planet we strive to interpret and photograph our vision of the world that surrounds us”

IT’S THE JOURNEY, NOT THE DESTINATION!

River Dart Gallery is the culmination of its two founding photographers, Kirsty Gilbert-Browning & Jason Browning.

Upon meeting, we united as a photographic couple equally obsessed with the discovery of the photographic image.

• The Beginning: From 2004 to 2010 this photographic couple was running Gilbertbrowning Studios, a successful commercial studio in Philadelphia, USA

• A Decisive Change: In 2010 they returned to the village in which Kirsty was raised. Refocusing their attention to Fine Art they traded in the city life for the rolling hills of the South West of England

• A New Start: Offering Fine Art and Commercial photography services, River Dart Gallery was established in 2011

• Our Journey Around The World: In 2013 they took a break for two years to travel around the world. Travelling to over 30 countries along the way they had the adventures of a lifetime whilst capturing our view of the world

• River Dart Gallery Opens: In late 2015 they returned to Stoke Gabriel and opened River Dart Gallery as an art gallery, framing shop and commercial photography studio

Wanderlust Adventures

When they are not working at River Dart Gallery you will find them living on their boat on the River Dart and always with cameras in hand.

SEE THE WORLD THROUGH OUR EYES

We continue to discover the world around us through our photography, with a quiet style we capture a unique view of the world that surrounds us.

Our Gallery

Our gallery is located in the heart of the village of Stoke Gabriel. 

The village is located on the historic River Dart, in the Southwest of the UK. 

Located next to the village shop and bus stop, there is free parking on the main street. 

Travelling too many beautiful places and photographing them for the last decade we have created collections of images from all over the world. 

Our artwork is available for purchase direct by contacting the gallery or from our online store. 

Nothing makes us happier than when our artwork speaks to a person and becomes a part of your life.

Come and explore the world through our eyes and see if you find that special image that can become a part of yours.

• Must have peanut butter sandwiches

• Loves the freedom of the water

• Likes to drive with the window down at all times

From an early age, I only had one dream and that was to travel the world with a camera in hand.

Starting my travels in the United States my life was put on pause when I was in a very serious car accident.

Learning to walk again this time with the aid of a prosthesis meant putting my dreams on hold and was the hardest 5 years of my life.

I received a scholarship to attend the University of the Arts, in Philadelphia to study photography. It was here that I not only nurtured my artistic talents and managed to completely ditch all walking aides and I graduated with honours.

Upon leaving college I was in the process of starting up a photo business when I met my neighbour (Jason) and my life would change forever. It was a partnership meant to be.

• Would rather be on a boat than dry land

• Would rather camp than be inside

• Would rather be with camera in hand

Started his career at a professional print house, where he obtained a working knowledge of professional labs, digital workflow and colour management.

Having established a solid reputation as a digital technician he refocused his concentration from print to the camera.

He decided to rent a studio loft to build his own darkroom and it turned out his neighbour was an aspiring photographer herself. (Kirsty)

He founded GilbertBrowning Studios with Kirsty in 2004 – 2010. Giving up his city life he made a life changing decision to move over to Devon in the UK.

He is currently either working or living on their boat on the River Dart as much as possible.
