The Meeting of Minds conference has been a big part of the On Landscape calendar for a few years now but with so many hurdles to overcome recently, it is with regret that we are cancelling the November conference. Furthermore, the Rheged Centre, where we host the conference, has confirmed that once they open up in May that will not be hosting large events such as our conference. The Limes Bed and Breakfast which has been a key accommodation for our speakers has also ceased trading. Until we find an alternative venue and accommodation we are unable to plan any future Meeting of Minds gatherings.
Over the past 3 conferences, we have really enjoyed creating a special event to celebrate the craft of landscape photography and the community. We would like to thank everyone who has been involved over the years - the delegates, speakers, exhibitors, video crew and stewards.
We are working on what we can do instead, but we feel that the big strength of the conference was the real-world space to meet and have conversations with your photography colleagues and we’ll be aiming for something like this in the future once the current situations are resolved in some way. We will be looking into hosting something online later this year and we’ll let you all know if this comes to fruition.
Again, thanks to everybody who has supported us in these conferences and we look forward to working with you all again sometime in the future.

In all other respects the 100S is great news, a smaller packable camera backed up with a good well fleshed out lens system and with a modern and malleable sensor. more
We must be unapologetic and explicit in our aim to show viewers things they almost certainly would not see on their own, to inspire in our viewers experiences they would never have if it were not for our subjective sensibilities and feelings, our creative and expressive skills, and not just our technical abilities. more
It was probably over a decade ago, more like 15 years I imagine, when I first saw Dan's photographs. I think it may have been on Fred Miranda or possibly via a blog circle. more
I decided to focus on the artwork of a photographer who has long inspired me, not only because her photographs are powerful, evocative, and unique, but because she is one heck of an amazing person and a fabulous steward of the natural places we all cherish. more
Many photographers believe that repeatedly visiting a location not only gives them that familiarity with the area to more easily get better photographs of subjects they know well, but crucially they also find it easier to make more incisive new images, showing the character of a location and how it changes with light, weather, seasons and indeed the photographer’s own mood. more
Back in January one of our readers, Anna McNay, got in touch to see if we'd be interested in an interview with Toby Deveson. He uses his old Nikkormat and the same 24mm lens that he ‘borrowed’ from your father more than 20 years ago. He finalises each frame in-camera and doesn't crop images in the darkroom. I more
