Inside this issue
It may be two years until the next conference, but I’m sitting here in the midst of a move to Scotland and pondering on who we should approach as speakers. Many of my favourite photographers have excluded themselves from our short list by dint of being dead (Josef Sudek, Eliot Porter, Peter Dombrovskis, Bill Brandt). Many other photographers who have excellent and inspiring work don’t make the best speakers (not giving names). We have a short list of a few photographers that we would like to see already but, again, I’d like to open the decision-making up to some of our readers. If you’ve seen an inspiring talk by a landscape photographer, from anywhere in the world, please let us know, and we’ll add it to our list of choices.
In the meantime, we’ve already visited On Landscape’s new base and are very pleased that we can get five times faster internet over our mobile phones than we currently have through BT’s physical network and we’ve been told we should get access to Fibre broadband as soon as we’re in. After spending five minutes loading a single page on Flickr this week (which I’m presuming isn’t normal Flickr load times) we are all itching to finish moving as fast as possible!

I found some consolation in the knowledge that some well respected artists and thinkers also did not consider happiness as particularly important. more
It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say that spending time in the mountains whether walking, climbing or taking photographs is my life. It’s been that way for the last 15 years and aside from family and friends they are my greatest source of joy, solace and inspiration. more
Across the reserve there were areas of short cropped grasses and layers of limestone pavement. I’d been to limestone pavements in the Yorkshire Dales but this was unreal. more
Have you felt it? That feeling of being of being in the right place… at the wrong time? Arriving for a much anticipated session making images at long dreamed of location only to realise that the elements have conspired against you (again) and the hoped for conditions are not to be? more
