It’s been a busy January so far. Having lost a bit of time from flu/covid/plague, I was quickly knee deep in prepping the NLPA awards book for printing. Fortunately, all of our entrants were speedy with supplying the content and so it was only me that wasn’t finished while on press. Writing content and having a few minutes left before the plate is being made to go on press keeps you on your toes! Hopefully, the end result will be satisfying for people.
The printing this time has been an absolute pleasure, Johnson’s of Nantwich have overhauled their ripping process and upgraded to a new printing standard and I have to say the results from press were looking better than the inkjet proofs and I made no changes on press at all! The book should be bound and ready by the end of February but if you would like to preorder a copy, we have a 15% discount for readers with the code “onlandscape315” which you can use here. Now that’s done, I’m working on our extended PDF (stories from each photographer about the images included in the book).
Finally, I’d like a say a big thank you for the feedback we’ve had from the podcast. We’re still learning how to get everything working well but from your comments, we seem to have done an OK job. We have Lizzie Shepherd lined up for the second episode so please send in your questions as before to email@example.com before 12th February.

I have wanted to try platinum palladium contact printing some of my negatives. It's been on my mind ever since I started shooting 8x10 and it's another reason why I started to shoot more black and white film. more
Most of my projects usually imply very long periods of waiting, and this one was no exception. I am lucky enough to live in a house with a magnificent view over the Portofino promontory. more
I’m extremely fortunate that nature photography found me and that I’m in a place that allows me to pursue it extensively. Most of my thoughts could just as easily apply to any creative endeavour or even just as advice on how to improve my life. more
