“Nature is always filling chinks and veins in mountains with curious treasures” John Ruskin
Angie and David Unsworth are traditional film photographers working in the English Lake District. They make contemporary photographs with 10x8 and 5x4 large format field cameras from their Grasmere studio. Their lecture, which is more akin to a photographic story, expands on the theme of Terry Abraham's ‘Life of a Mountain, Scafell Pike,’ responding to the mountain as a landscape of personal pilgrimage.
Capturing the moment with Mark Littlejohn

"I was a police officer for 30 years, spending 25 years in the CID. The last ten years were spent working as a Computer Forensics Analyst. During this time I began to spend more and more time pursuing photography as a serious pastime. My interests were mainly in landscape photography and in particular "capturing the moment". Over the last four years my work has been featured in a variety of magazines and national newspapers. I have also been interviewed for a variety of publications. During the last three years I have received five judges commendations in the UK Landscape Photographer of the Year Awards with my images being displayed in the National Theatre in London. Another of my images received a third place in the International Photography Awards in Los Angeles in 2012 and also in 2012 Pentax exhibited a number of my images in the Salon de la Photo Exhibition in Paris. I don't normally enter competitions but sometimes they can help a wee bit." Mark Littlejohn
