Inside this issue
It's a great thing when people put themselves out to organise something for the landscape photography community and so we're dedicating this issue to Pete Bridgwood and his ongoing exhibition "Masters of Vision". We spent a great couple of days in the company of a variety of pilgrims who had come to support the event and interviewed all of the exhibitors which we've transcribed for your delectation.
We'd also like to introduce a new writer for On Landscape, Tim Ashley. Tim has written for his own blog for some time which you should check out here but he's agreed to write the occasional article for us. His first article is a bit of a special where we get to see what the cutting edge cameras from Phase One are capable of. Tim took an IQ260 and an IQ260 Achromatic (the one without the colour filters) and run them through their paces for us. Tim is also an ambassador for Photo Voice, a charity helping give communities and individuals a voice through photography.
Finally we've got Susan Brown as our featured photographer. Susan's 'Salt Water Tidal Pools' series has got quite a bit of attention but we were interested in hearing about all of her work and we think you'll enjoy reading about it.

Tim: Hi Steve, I believe this is your second Masters of Vision? Steve: That’s correct, the last exhibition – two years ago now – was my first. It’s very interesting to see how things have progressed. I think the perception of a photograph is very fundamentally changed by where you view the picture. I was mentioning to one of the other exhibitors that if you put these images in a more

Padley Gorge Tim: Can you tell us about your involvement from the exhibition as you’ve been involved from the start? Mark: It’s four years now. I was one of the people that Pete invited originally to do the exhibition and when we first started we didn’t even know how we were going to do it so Dav designed the display boards and stuff like that and spent more

It’s all Pete’s more
Last Light after Storm Can you tell me a little about your education, childhood passions, early exposure to photography and vocation? A father serving in the Royal Navy meant a somewhat haphazard education. I was given the choice of being left at boarding school or travelling; I chose to travel. My education was far from artistic; in fact my passion was for Sciences and more
