We stumbled on this studio during our trip and I'm so glad we did. Really stunning photography and Glen is more than happy to chat about his work which I found fascinating. Wish we could have stayed longer.

This small studio at the top of the stairs leading to the roundhouse transports you into the under water world...thanks to a very talented and humble photographer and artist. If you are after a souvenir of your trip to Australia- don't forget to drop by and get one of his really affordable art pieces.

Thank you Allison for taking the time to review our gallery. So delighted that you enjoy my work. If we chatted yesterday? I hope I was coherent enough as I had just been traveling for over 24 hours without sleep before opening up the Gallery ;-) More

This artist has an uncanny ability to capture extraordinary images within images that are already special. His underwater close-ups give a insight into the underwater world that is rarely equaled. About 10 years ago I purchased some of Glens earlier prints and they have pride of place in the hallway of my house. Although they are some of his first... More

Glens' Studio is full of colour and would brighten any day on entry. The underwater scenes that are captured by his photography are amazing and the perspective is wonderful.

Hi, I always pop in when I'm down in Freo to see the studio. The studio is a lovely adjunct to visiting the Round House. The photos are spectacular.

I've followed Glen's work since falling in love with it at a Fremantle Markets stall back in 2009. Back then it was hard to track him down. I was so excited to discover he had a permanent gallery, but even more impressed by how beautiful it is. So glad he has the gallery as I can tell all my local... More

What a great surprise to find Glen Cowan’s lovely studio while visiting the Round House. It was so much fun wandering from room to room finding a new favorite photo each time I turned a corner! I love the close ups of fish that look more like modern art than a fish. And I really love the photos of shadows... More
