Until the day when there is an equal need for a Men’s Day as there is for a Women’s Day, we will continue to make every effort to include as many women in On Landscape as possible. "Why the extra effort?", some of you might ask. Well, from our experience in business and also in organising the On Landscape conference, women tend not to be as self-promoting as men and are less likely to put themselves in the editorial firing line. Anecdotally for every male speaker invited to our conference, we had no rejections. However, we have had multiple women turn us down, some because they didn’t feel they had anything to say and some because they just wanted to get on with photography.
We realised we have to make more than an equal effort to find and promote women photographers in both our magazine and our conference. There is also the inarguable fact that more men partake in landscape photography than women. Is it possibly because we have more free time (we’d be interested in any thoughts people have)? Anyway, I’d like to take a moment to celebrate all of the women who we’ve included in On Landscape over the last year and we hope to increase that number next year.

Despite so many challenges related to the COVID-19 pandemic, the requirement for social distancing also created opportunities for me to spend more time doing virtual presentations for camera clubs and other photography groups, answering photographers’ questions on a variety of topics. To my surprise, topics related to psychology seem to have been a recurring theme. more
I do not think that nature and landscape photography always need to evoke positive emotions and I love the fact that Joel’s work can evoke both positive and negative emotions and feelings. more
Several photographers with well-subscribed social media outlets, have openly lamented the arrival of AI and have expressed scepticism about its use in landscape photography. more
My affinity with Scotland is deep, and I feel that relationship is important. There is something powerful about photographing a place that means something to you. more
While recently reading a monograph on a Harry Callahan exhibit the writer mentioned the process of making an image with an 8 x 10 view camera. I thought of how much photography has changed over the decades and began to wonder how those changes have impacted the photographs we make today, for better or for worse. more
