Inside this issue
We’ve got a couple of new contributors who have written articles for this issue. First we have Hans Strand, a wonderful photographer and one of the premiere international landscape photographers during the peak of the 1980s colour publishing boom and who still creates photographs with a unique and beautiful look. Hans writes about the difference between impressing and making an impression with examples from his own work.
We also have Doug Chinnery writing about his work with in-camera multiple exposures and who interviews Chris Friel and Valda Bailey about their own work using the technique.
We also visited Mark Littlejohn and spent a wonderful day in Ullswater followed by the chance to interview him about his work - an opportunity we’ve been waiting for for over a year.
We finally have an article on Slovenian photographer Luka Esenko, an intriguing project on the M62 - a major motorway in the North of England, a followup review about the Arca Swiss D4 tripod head and our featured photographer David Moorhouse.
Conference in 2014 Announced
And we mentioned in our last email update we had a bit of news and we’d like to announce that we’ve booked a location for a landscape photography conference at the end of November of next year (21-23 November 2014). We’ve already confirmed a couple of international speakers and we’ll be asking questions about what sort of talks you’d like to see in the next couple of months.

I am writing this first short article to try to put some perspective on how viewers are evaluating landscape photography. In my mind the majority of landscape photographs shown on the internet are made to impress rather than to make an impression on the viewer. With that statement I mean that way too much focus is spent on sensation rather than on subtlety. The classic approach is to use early morning or late evening sunlight to boost the image. more
Multiple exposure photography is nothing new. Examples can be traced back to the very beginnings of photography more
This interview was in 2013. Since then Mark Littlejohn has won the Landscape Photographer of the Year 2014. You can read his latest interview here and his video interview in the run up to the Meeting of Minds Conference. We've been hassling Mark Littlejohn since 2011 for an interview after seeing some of his wonderful Lake District photography and persistence as finally paid off when we more
These are part of the first trickle of images from one of my ongoing personal projects started in November 2012. This particular one revolves around the M62. The trans-Pennine motorway. The M62 had been on my mind long before this project started, and I've been photographing it as part of the make-up of the landscape on and off for years. In fact my current best selling framed image is a more
We received a short biography of Luka Esenko by Julie Renahan recently and would like to share it with you. Like so many Slovenes, Luka Esenko was born with the ability to run up mountains effortlessly and with grace. Add to this that he is a talented landscape and nature photographer and you have a winning combination and an impressive portfolio of stunning images. Born at a time when Slovenia, a more
A while back, Dave Tolcher reviewed the then quite new Arca Swiss d4 geared head. This report picks up where he left off and rounds out his observations with some solid experience gleaned over the past 18 months of using the Arca d4 in the field and compares it to the cheaper Manfrotto 410 Junior Geared Head with which some readers may be familiar (and which I also own). more
This issue we've talked to David Moorhouse, a photographer who I noticed when he showed some amazing pictures of Glencoe on Flickr which you'll see included. Can you tell me a little about your education, childhood passions, early exposure to photography and vocation? I was born in Huddersfield Yorkshire, typically of the West Riding, my mother worked in a woollen mill & my father was involved in Industrial Engineering. My father was a farmer’s son & I think he missed the rural more
