Inside this issue
At its very core, On Landscape is a subscription based bi-weekly magazine dedicated to landscape photography. But it’s not just this because most magazines don’t have video content and interactive 360 degree location guides. Most magazines don’t have instant interactivity and community feedback either. And most magazines are only part landscape, usually mixed with the very different genre of wildlife photography.
On Landscape was an idea brought to life by engineer turned photographer Tim Parkin and world renowned professional landscape photographer Joe Cornish. Our original goal was to create something dedicated to the people we both meet on a fairly regular basis. The amateurs who spend all of their spare time in the field, the semi-professionals trying to make a living from this misunderstood occupation and the full timers who have managed to build themselves a niche in a challenging business field.
We didn’t want to just reproduce the current status quo though – it was important that the magazine had a guiding principle and after some thought we can probably summarise it as follows:
- Raise awareness of great community of landscape photographers around the world
- Inform about the history of our chosen genre
- Build bridges between the contemporary and the romantic, the purist and the experimental
- Showcase amazing work
- Adapt to the desires of the community without diluting principles
Since we started on this path, we have had some brilliant submissions from our readers and colleagues and have been joined by Andrew Nadolski (who has also designed this website and the PDF issues) and also David Ward and Jenny Ward with fantastic assistance from Dav Thomas, Rob Hudson, Richard Childs and Julian Barkway.
We have great plans for the future which include more interactive content and expanded community features plus more regular landscape photography. We’re hoping to make On Landscape a one stop shop for everything to do with landscape photography and with your help I’m sure that will happen.
Don’t forget we’re also looking for contributors and stringers (people who tell us about interesting snippets of news to feature in our news section) and also just feedback on what it is you want to see and how you want to see it.
