Blue sky days. The definition of purity, happiness and peace - apart from for we landscape photographers that is. For a landscape photographer, a midsummer blue sky means uninteresting, tedious and challenging and images that are more likely to exist on your computer as a desktop background than a five-star prize winner. And so, as we approach midsummer the UK is experiencing a spell of beautiful weather that means foreground interest is more likely a burnt burger than a rotund rock and the only thing less desirable than going outside for photography is being told what a great day for photography it must be.

However, it shouldn’t all be desperation - the hedgerows are full, the canals have rushes and grasses aplenty, and the fields are filling with wildflowers. A change of focus is all that’s needed - or you could just enjoy the sunshine without a camera (perish the thought!).

Endframe: “Maple and Birch Trunk & Oak Leaves” by Eliot Porter

Almost all the other photographs were obvious subjects – mountains, rivers, etc – photographed in more or less bombastic style. This was a more subtle shot; small trees in a dense woodland arranged all on top of each other in the middle of the frame. Continue reading → more

Black & White

If I did not have to make my living from photography, I would only stick to black & white. There is so much more freedom in black & white than in colour. Continue reading → more

The History of Moonlight

I have never understood anybody who seems disinterested in the night sky and this fascination to photograph it began on Dartmoor, right at the start of my love for photography. Continue reading → more

The Unknown Room

Asked about adventure, Messner said you need an unknown environment to really experience it, an unknown room as he calls it. That, I think, brings into play the authentic side of photography. The moving on towards the unknown. Something you experience for the first time. Something you photograph for the first time. Continue reading → more
