It would be this time of year when we would usually be running the On Landscape conference. With ‘normal’ looking like it might be in sight for next year we’ve started looking again at where we might be able to host the event. The Rheged centre was a brilliant location for many reasons and we hope that they may change their mind about larger events (they stopped all events when Covid happened) but if not, we have a couple of possible locations in mind. If we get things planned next year we would host our next On Landscape conference in 2023. That seems like a long way away but, as we’ve found with many things, it creeps up fast! The alternative location we’re currently looking at is in Aviemore, set in the Cairngorm National Park. Transport is excellent and the conference facility is part of a large hotel. If any of you have any other suggestions on where we could host the event, please let us know. It has to be somewhere people would like to go for photography and it’s in Autumn so woodland colour is always good. A large screen in a facility that will hold up to around 200 would be great. We’re pretty hopeful something can be arranged though and we’ll obviously let people know via the mailing list.

I’ve tried to keep news about the Natural Landscape Photography Awards to a minimum as, although it has taken up a lot of my bandwidth, continuous updates would soon get boring I imagine. However, it’s over! (well the “awards” part of it anyway). Just over a week ago, we announced the winners and runners up of all of the categories and also a few extra awards, which I’ll come onto in a bit. We are all incredibly happy with more
Not necessarily my best pictures of the year, they are nevertheless ones that I am fond of, or intrigued by…and which haven’t yet appeared in On Landscape! The captions aim to provide a little background to their origins, and why I chose them. more
Has the craft of photography lessened over the years? Has digital imagery removed the getting it right in camera, in favour of Photoshop and Lightroom, in which case is it digital art rather than photography, in the strictest sense? more
This became a project about crossing boundaries, both geographic and linguistic. It weaves a story through world cultural history in an accessible way, from a personal point of view. It illuminates a universal human story. more
The images we’ve chosen for our interview draw very much on his predilection for pattern; even the birds sit within complexities of shape and form. more
