The Photography Show is running again at the moment and for the first year in a long time we haven’t attended. It’s probably a good thing as we’ve travelled back and forth from our new base in Scotland a lot in the last few weeks including setting up the new On Landscape exhibition at the Joe Cornish gallery where we also hosted a discussion of Joe’s First Light book and the role of influence and inspiration in photography (the exhibition is running for the next few months so try and visit if you can!). Although I miss the social side of the Photography Show, I don’t particularly miss the overt sales agenda. Every stand under pressure to part you from your money (and I don’t need much pressure to be honest). There are a few interesting things that could part you from your cash though - the new Fuji GFX 50S with the Sony medium format sensor looks very interesting (plus the Hasselblad X1D if they manage to show one off). What I really miss is the chance to browse some photography books. Putting you hands on the paper and feeling the quality is so much better than ordering online and hoping for the best. To make up for it, I plan on visiting Neil McIlwraith of the online book seller “Beyond Words” to see if he’ll let me browse his storeroom instead and hopefully we’ll bring a few books back for review!

You may have your own methods, for your own purpose. For each of us, these might be very different. I hope these thoughts might add something to your own thinking and workflow. more
This was my first proper introduction to the world of landscape photography and it was these landscape interpretations that tugged on my imagination and emotions unlike my own snap happy creations. more
