Inside this issue
Thanks for your patience in waiting for Issue Two – it’s been a great few weeks for the magazine and we’ve been talking to quite a few photographers about articles, interviews and just general suggestions for content. In the meantime, it’s just me and Joe generating content and so we’re a little behind on this issue. The good news is that we have some content ready for Issue Three already.
The format for the location guides is settling down (working out an efficient way of geocoding photographs and the generation and placement of 360 panos has absorbed a lot of time) and we’re including iphone compatible video for our screencasts and interviews.
We also have a few more general features. The first is a combination biography/review of master photographers, our landscape photography peers, and also of contemporary British photographers. The first of these features Eliot Porter, the first great colour landscape photographer, and Neil Bryce, one of my personal favourite photographers and someone who deserves, and rewards, more attention.
So thanks for everyone for helping support the magazine – we’re trying to make this about the landscape photography community to your support, help, ideas, contributions will all be appreciated.

First of all – a caveat. This research was done on a Canon 5D Mk II. If there is enough interest in the article, I am happy to continue by looking at Nikon cameras or other Canon cameras where possible. [ read ]
For every ‘famous’ photographer that you may hear about through our esteemed photographic press or via ‘exploring’ the photo sharing websites, there are many more who just go about their photographic business with little attention. It should therefore come as [ read ]
Our Hindsight series continues on with a series of pictures from Scotland’s Coast. As you can imagine, Joe took many more pictures than were included in the book and we’re talking about two of them here. We’re also featuring what [ read ]
Antony is a deserving winner of Take a View 2010, his capture of Corfe is original and well seen and his other commended images are, in my opinion, even better (especially the lavendar sunrise shot which is mentioned here). We [ read ]
