Inside this issue
Subscribers 4×4 Portfolios
Allan Harris, Cameran Ashraf, Chris Wilson & John Barton
I’ve been taking photographs for over fifty years but since retirement it has become an even more intriguing and important part of my life and interests. Landscape photography is a constant fascination but I’ll turn my hand to any subject.
I am a university professor originally from Los Angeles, California. I enjoy photography as a medium through which I "grow down" into a greater depth of soul in my life. For me, photography is a way to connect with my intuitive and feeling self. I started photographing seriously when I discovered astrophotography in 2004, and my work has broadened beyond the stars over the years.
I have been taking photographs for more than 50 years, but I have only been doing so on a serious basis since 2017; I still have a lot to learn. Most of the images I have made fall somewhere in the overlap of travel and landscape photography. However, I suspect that many aficionados in either genre would regard me with some scepticism. I never use a tripod, which is anathema to plenty of landscape photographers, and I never photograph people, which a true travel photographer would surely find suspicious.
John is a retired Teacher who spends his time creating images from a wide variety of subjects, but with particular concentration on Landscape and Architecture as the main themes. He is as comfortable in the urban jungle as the great outdoors where no buildings exist!
Our 4x4 feature is a set of four mini landscape photography portfolios from our subscribers, each consisting of four images related in some way. Perhaps a project, a theme, a narrative, a day out photographing, a holiday - it's up to you to choose. You can view previous 4x4 portfolios here.
We're always on the lookout for new portfolios, so please do get in touch! If you would like to submit your 4x4 portfolio, please visit this page for submission information.
