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.

In 2009 Pete Bridgwood put on an exhibition at Southwell Minster which showcased the work of a Master photographer as well as a few of his colleagues work. The first Master was Charlie Waite with a supporting role by Amateur Photographer editor Damien Demolder. Alongside Pete Bridwood's work was that of Dav Thomas, Mark Gould, Chris Upton and Jonathan Horrocks. The exhibition and location were a great success and two more
I would probably choose to talk about would be the stone sequence at Gruinard bay which has become a favourite. more
They are from all over – some from the States, a couple from the South West of England, local to me, a few from Iceland, and the Landscape Photographer of the Year photo. more
I think one of my favourite places from the travels that I’ve been on was definitely Yellowstone national park in the US. more
The first time I went to the Hebrides in 2008, inspired by Tristan Campbell. He was a photoblogger with wonderful pictures and I thought, “I’ve got to go there”. more
I think that when I did the first exhibition I was finding my ‘voice’ as a photographer so it was more varied and I did do more obvious seaside photos. more
There is one called ‘passing cloud’ which a shot I made down in Talybont in Wales but could have been made anywhere really. more
quite like the picture of Burbage Brook in Padley Gorge because it’s something I don’t normally do, trees. It’s a fantastic location and I normally go for bigger views as you can see. more
At the northern tip, there is a place called O’Ia and probably some of the best sunsets in the world can be seen from this place. more
To pick two is quite tricky as they’re always for different reasons. Northumberland features quite heavily because that’s my home county when I get the chance I do go back home so some of those places. So I go to Dunstaburgh and Hadrians Wall. 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
