Time, for the landscape photographer, is often the enemy. We never seem to spend enough time taking photos; there is never enough time to find the composition before the light disappears; it’s too early to get up; we got up too late; our readers say they frequently have problems finding time to read all the articles or books that they own. However, time is also our greatest friend. As time passes we tend to understand more, our preconceptions can be vanquished and our motivations more clearly understood.

My own time constraints (and geographical location) often preclude going out and taking pictures regularly but when I do I find I have still benefited from the time away because of my study of all parts of the photographic process. This Autumn we’ll be running the Meeting of Minds landscape photography conference and this week we’ve finalised our plans for a pre-conference workshop where Mark Littlejohn, Len Metcalf and I will be teaming up to offer the benefits of our experience (well - at least Mark’s and Len’s) to a handful of photographers. Autumn the highlight of many people’s photographic year and I can’t think of a better way to spend it than in the company of other photographers in Borrowdale, arguably England’s most magical valley.

So if you can make the time we’d love to have you join us and hopefully attend the photography conference afterwards.

The Unseen Photographer

Joe Cornish talked at the Meeting of Minds Conference 2014. He talked about and shared some unseen work that is essentially personal. This work goes back a long way into by archive since he has been making such images since he first picked up a camera. more

Birch Article – Call for Photos

Just like our Heather article in a previous issue, we would like to include some of your best photographs of the Birch, either as part of the landscape, as a subject in its own right or as part of an abstract, detail or macro. more

Pre Conference Workshop

When I was talking to Len Metcalf about coming from Australia to talk at our conference in November, he expressed an interest in offering a small workshop the week before. As a full-time photography teacher (at the aptly named “Len’s School”), I pointed out that this was a bit of a busman’s holiday but Len was still keen to see if the Antipodean school of tuition would be of interest to a Limey audience. Knowing Len more

Michael Gibbs

Trees and woods are a perennial favourite for many photographers, offering plenty of scope for personal interpretations. Michael’s images hint at their mystery but also tease with paint like flecks of colour and light. more

Organising a Photo Laundry

Visually resembling the print-drying lines that were strung across traditional photo labs, it’s part community event, part print-exchange and part pop-up exhibition. more

Going it Alone on Harris

I was happy to return for the third time when Adam suggested the possibility of a trip, and I felt he would also be a kindred spirit when it came to searching out dereliction! more

Towards a radical perspective

This summer I headed back into the woods, this time, the Moroccan variety; a little scruffy, not too grand, small scale, motivated once again to employ the self-imposed rules of 30 years ago more
