We've been hearing lots of good things about Iain Sarjeant's Exhibiton "Among Trees" and we're featuring an interview with him in this issue as well as a review of the exhibition by one of the first visitors. Exhibitions are undoubtedly the best way of seeing photographs but for most people it is books that become the best compromise between availability and quality. And Andris Apse's "Light and Landscape" is the sort of beautiful book that does it so well. We're also talking about social media, featured photographer Fran Halsall, Glen Orchy location guide and we're also welcoming a couple of new members of the On Landscape team - Andrew Nadolski and Jenny Ward.
Ok, that title may be a little outrageous, however on the right day, in the right conditions, this part of the world is truly remarkable for us photographers. Based on the A82 at the Southern edge of the Scottish Highlands, the bridge acts as a junction for two particular points of photograph interest. To the right of the bridge is Loch Tulla. A sweeping loch near to Black Mount, popular for its access by road and beautiful forest to more

Following the opening of my solo exhibition ‘Among Trees’ near Inverness in the Scottish Highlands last week, Tim asked me to write a small piece about my exhibition experiences. Although I have exhibited many times in group shows over the years, this is my first experience of mounting a solo show, and presenting a body of work. I have always been drawn to photograph trees, and ‘Among Trees’ was the first series that I worked on, changing the way I more
I first read Joe Cornish’s First Light about 7 years ago and it had a dramatic effect on my photography. First Light is not - as you might think - about the light first thing in the morning but about the light coming first. This could be first thing in the morning or the evening or infact any time of the day, but what is important is the quality of the light. The book is split into 7 chapters more
Andris Apse originally came to my attention through his inclusion in the seminal ‘World’s Top Landscape Photographers’ (a pivotal book for me, despite it’s weak points). His image of Breaksea Sound, Fiordland being of particular dramatic note. Since then I had not heard much about him but it was when Alex Nail mentioned him in our Featured Photographer section and then more recently Phil Malpas that I thought I should try to get hold of a book or two.
