It’s June the sixteenth and nearly midsummer. As I look out of the window I remember a couple of months earlier in the year when I was a landscape photographer. The rich greenery outside and the weather flip-flopping between blazing alpine sunshine and typical Highland dreich ‘air bathing’ is doing little to engage my creative mind. Walking, DIY, climbing and reading are my spare time activities. What happened? Well I was taking a photograph every day at one point but a trip to Torridon disturbed the flow and once you’ve stopped something like this it becomes much harder to start again. I’ve also sold some camera equipment in order to upgrade and haven’t quite managed to do so yet. “I’ll start again once I’ve got the equipment”, I tell myself, knowing a blatant excuse when I hear it.

I could get down about the situation. I’m such a lazy arse, I have no commitment, I’m no good anyway, but I know I will start again at some point and the embers of my passion will flare once more. No point in trying to push things, but I also know that things need a jump start occasionally. Then Joe Cornish pays us a visit and we both go on a long walk around the Three Sisters and up to Bidean, talking photography, politics and geology along the way and as I use Charlotte’s camera and a couple of prime lenses I start to get that familiar buzz back. Nothing major, and certainly nothing really to show for it apart from a few postcard moments but it’s a step in the right direction.

End frame: The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, Alaska (2009) ~ Sebastiao Salgado

You can feel the depth and breadth of the valley, its old age as if it were from time immemorial as if we were looking at the moment of the birth of our planet. more

Permanence and mutations of the landscape

These photo series consist of these juxtaposed elements, may they are physical (the landscape, the habitat), time-related (ancient, new) or symbolic (sacred, profane). more

Shona Grant

There’s been a resurgence in interest in artists’ books among landscape photographers recently. There is too the possibility that the book itself can become a thing of beauty and it’s been a pleasure to see the images that Shona Grant has been sharing of her creations. more

The Humanless Condition

For an introvert, it is likely that the quality and experience of photography may be impeded by the not-uncommon tendency to practice photography in groups, or in places where escaping the presence, chatter, and behaviour of others is difficult. more

From Realism to Abstraction

Once we’ve got to grips with some techniques we might start to look for own individual style. Many photographers are content to hone their skills and search for the elusive moments of light and conditions that will produce a new interpretation of a classic location. more
