It’s been conference planning madness in the On Landscape offices over the last few weeks. We’ve got most of the speakers booked and in this issue, we’ve announced the first four and opened ticket sales.

Thanks to everyone for making the most of the early bird price! We also noticed that the date of the conference is quite close to the 10th anniversary of On Landscape magazine (doesn’t time fly) so we’ll be celebrating that at the conference as well. Who said cake? If you can’t make it, don’t worry as we’ll be recording all of the sessions as usual but the experience of being there is so much more as anybody who has been will tell you.

As you probably know, On Landscape isn’t the normal ‘reviews, adverts, competitions and special offers’ website. Although, we have done the occasional review where there has been a gap in the available information (ND filters, Grads, etc) we generally try to avoid them. However, we did notice that there was a big gap in the market for reviews of high-end 8x10 pictorial lenses so we figured we could probably add at least one new reader if we could get more
I’m delighted to have come across Alan Henriksen’s detailed explorations of the natural and the man-made on Lensculture recently. As well as sharing his images with you, he has some rather special anecdotes too. more

In today's global photography community, the temptation of an extra few megapixels here, and a slightly sharper lens there, or any modicum of additional functionality is hard to avoid with gear chat being one of the core currencies of conversation among fellow 'togs more
The conference will be held from 13th - 15th November 2020 at the Rheged Centre in the edge of the Lake District, just above Ullswater. more
It is then that we start to interpret the world around us, making it visible to others under an appearance strongly tinted by our own perception. When this happens, we stop being mere performers and we become composers. more
