Janet Tavener

I was drawn to Janet’s images by their fluid beauty but they may challenge you to think about your own definition of photographic genre, for all that we do is interconnected and our path into revelation may be our own life experiences. more

Isabel Díez

Water has been present in my photographic work from the beginning, but it is becoming increasingly important. Fluidity gives me peace. more

The Lightness Of Being

Astrid Preisz

Nothing in this world is the same twice, and I began to realise that my images could be what they needed to be, and that they followed who I was at a particular moment in a particular place and time. Inwardly, I stopped more and more calling myself a landscape photographer or a nature photographer or even a photographer or an artist. more

No Smoke Without Fire | Joe Cornish

End Frame: No Smoke Without Fire by Joe Cornish

Starting with the broad elements, we seem to have a sort of paradise in the background, full of light, leaves, green, and ephemeral light and, seemingly, some sort of hell archetype in the front, scorched earth, scattered debris and all the evidence of the fire. more

Rumsunrise Joe Cornish

End frame: Rùm Sunrise, Inner Hebrides by Joe Cornish

Rùm’s soaring profile catching the warm light just after sunrise was crying out to be photographed, and I assume Joe knew about this particular wave-cut platform on the Isle of Eigg and that it would one day make a useful foreground. more


Woodland Sanctuary – Book Review

Alongside the exhibition by Joe Cornish and Simon Baxter detailed elsewhere in this issue, the two photographers also collaborated on a book to work alongside it (and as a showcase for those unable to visit the exhibition). more

Seaworks Paul Kenny 4

10 Years of Seaworks

The exhibition is entitled ‘Ten Years of Seaworks’ and the pictures on display were made between 2008 to 2018. more


Natural Landscape Photography Awards Book

My last few weeks of 2021 were spent immersed in the world of photography books. And, for a change, I wasn’t looking at other people’s books but designing one of my own. more

Joe Cornish Submergence

End frame: Submergence by Joe Cornish

I have spent so many hours photographing abstracts on the English coast and the print of Submergence evokes many memories. more


Arctic Tundra

In the early autumn of 2019, I was privileged to be one of twelve photographers, led by Anthony Spencer and Joe Cornish on a photographic “expedition” to the North East Greenland Coast. more


End frame: Gateway to the Moors II, North York Moors by Joe Cornish

The golden light on the weathered, wooden finger-post sign, the positioning of the very top of the post against a darker background, the angles of the ‘fingers’ themselves and the intriguing, yet to be discovered, places with unknown names etched in timber and only a few miles away, by pleasant foot, in various directions. more


7 Principles to Reduce the Individual & Collective Impact of Nature Photography on Wild Places

Being part of the team that created the 7 Principles encouraged me to rethink my own behaviours and I have made some changes in response. more


End frame: Lochan Na Staigne, Clach Leathad, Meall a Bhuiridh by Joe Cornish

This is a piece of art that opens up so many emotions. it uplifts whilst creating a sense of pathos, and is restful and energising at the same time as well as being dramatic and simple. more


Five Days in Glencoe

With Spring well and truly Sprung and summer on its way, we've taken the opportunity to reflect on some of the highlights of Winter. more


Endframe: ‘A view of Bossington Beach looking west, taken in the early morning’ by Joe Cornish

It was a moment that struck me immediately, a deeply visceral study of light, form, flow, textures, and gravitas. Here was a photograph that seemed to be about a time and place, not merely a documentary. more


Endframe: Upper Torridon, Winter Dawn by Joe Cornish

The midground provides a delicate connection between the upper and lower regions of the frame, with the two crops of land almost ‘reaching out’ to each other. more


This Land – Book Review

When I visited Joe at the start of last year, he told me about a book project he was just starting. We chatted a little bit about it but I didn’t want to know too much as one of my joys is to sit down with a good photography book and take in the whole thing in one glorious session. Over the next twelve months, I saw the product of various of Joe’s photo shoots with Roly Smith but I more


Endframe: Contours in Blue by Joe Cornish

The picture is primarily wave-worn undulating grey limestone rock, with some pebbles and small pools of sea water that are in the process of drying out. And yet what we see is definitely not it what it says on the tin’s list of contents. more


A Return to Iceland

I think it’s fair to say that Iceland has become a bit of a cliche for photographers. No matter where you look online there seems to be someone returning with pictures of clear ice on black sand, moss covered boulders and, in winter at least, swathes of “green shit in the sky”. Even two years ago when I visited with Joe Cornish to shoot the promotional videos for Phase One (one, two and three) I felt more


The Saltwick Challenge

Around midsummer Joe Cornish, David Tolcher, Andrew Nadolski and I decided we'd set ourselves a little challenge to turn up at the same location with a bunch of cameras and see what happened. As David Tolcher has a house in Robin Hood Bay we chose Saltwick Nab as a great location as the sun sets off to sea in the North at this time of year (well - North West obviously but that's up the coast in these parts). Each more


First Light – Joe Cornish

I first read Joe Cornish’s First Light about 7 years ago and it had a dramatic effect on my photography. First Light is not - as you might think - about the light first thing in the morning but about the light coming first. This could be first thing in the morning or the evening or infact any time of the day, but what is important is the quality of the light. The book is split into 7 chapters more


Photography and the World of Books – a Talk by Joe Cornish

Joe Cornish spoke of his early influences including Ansel Adams, Edward Weston and John Blakemore, important for their photography and their way of thinking. more


With Landscape in Mind

Last week my wife and I accompanied Joe Cornish to a small cinema in Hyde Park, Leeds. Despite the strong temptation, we weren't going to see 'Kung Fu Panda 3D' and definitely not 'Hangover 2'. This was 'Joe Cornish 1' in a leading role in 'With Landscape in Mind', a production by Environment Films. Joe is only credited as 'presenter' but this is 'about' Joe Cornish and covers a more


A Photographer at Work – Eddie Ephraums & Joe Cornish

I don't think there are many UK based landscapers who don't list Joe as an influence or inspiration in their work. Over the last 20 years or so, Joe has emerged, following in the footsteps of Charlie Waite, as one of our finest landscape photographers. more


Hindsight – Lairig Ghru

Joe Cornish spent some time talking about a set of pictures taken on one of his trips from the Scotland's Mountains work. more


Hindsight – Etive and Orchy

We're taking a little detour in our Hindsight series with a video covering two complementary images from Joe's Scotland's Mountains book more


Hindsight – Cairngorms

In this Hindsight Joe Cornish talks about three pictures taken in the Cairngorms for Scotland's Mountains. more


Aspect Ratios – Part 1

For photographers of a certain (ahem) age, the aspect ratio of 35mm film, 24mm x 36mm (ie 2x3), was fed to us like mother’s milk. more


Hindsight – Scotland’s Coast

Our Hindsight series continues on with a series of pictures from Scotland's Coast. more


Hindsight – Hardcastle Crags

‘Hindsight’ screencasts - we review a picture that works well, a picture from the same session that didn’t quite make the grade and a shot that was archived. more


Borders Sunset

We will be concentrating on how to make pictures work better; How to balance light, emphasise structure and guide the eye. more
