We moved to the Scottish Highlands in late winter of this year and were blessed with a glorious spring with consistently warm weather, sunny days and snow capped hills. As such it was a bit of a shock to experience the Highland summer, a damp and dreary affair made worse by the June heatwave stuck over southern parts of the UK. We’ve had nearly a whole month of rain and overcast broken by only a day or two of clear skies. It’s very easy when the weather is disagreeable and the landscape turns green to just stay in, waiting for the light (26 days - beat that Mr Noton) and in the end I figured something must be done. As such, starting from midsummer I’ve committed myself to a 365 project, at least one photograph a day, every day for the foreseeable future. This should do a few things, 1) it will get me out of the house (and I’m a confirmed hermit so that is a win) 2) it hones my camera skills (10,000 hours and all that) 3) It makes me look for pictures regardless of circumstance. All of this should help me in many ways, but most importantly it should stop me taking this glorious part of the world for granted (something, I’m told, is a problem however magical your surroundings). I’ll write a half way point article about this at Christmas, but for now, if you want to watch my progress, you can take a look at http://www.lochaber365.com.

The plan was to photograph, with a large plate camera, 63 Y points which correlate to precisely 100 kilometre points along the Yangtze River, making up an epic journey of 6.320 km across China Continue reading → more

Endframe: ‘A view of Bossington Beach looking west, taken in the early morning’ by Joe Cornish

It was a moment that struck me immediately, a deeply visceral study of light, form, flow, textures, and gravitas. Here was a photograph that seemed to be about a time and place, not merely a documentary. Continue reading → more

Thomas Peck’s Critiques

I make no apologies for focussing on Marc Adamus in this article. A photographer who, in every sense of the word (awe, majesty, grandeur, fear etc), makes Sublime images. Continue reading → more

A Change of Format

Apparently, film photography is making a comeback. Actually, it never went away, but in the same way that vinyl record sales are booming again, there is definitely a resurgent interest in film photography. Continue reading → more
