Sketching Landscapes

Hi guys, 

i've just returned from my recent travels over to the UK and realised that I haven't yet posted my most recent article from Light and Landscape Magazine. The article is called 'Sketching Landscapes' and can be seen below. The article discusses how you come to reach your desired composition and a little bit about learning from your mistakes. You can still see it in the magazine by checking out my previous blog post and following the links there. For now here's the article.

Light and Landscape Magazine - Issue 6

I'd just like to point you in the direction of Light and Landscape magazine where an article of mine has just been published in the latest issue (issue 6). Light and landscape magazine is a free to download, iPad only magazine for all things related to landscape photography and more. 

I was recently invited to submit an article by Matt (the editor). The article is called 'Slow Down' and it discusses the topic of slowing down and shooting less frames. The idea being that you consider your subject or scene and produce more higher quality frames by taking the time to get it right first time.

The magazine is still in its infancy but the standard of work, both photography and written pieces is very good, so if you like photography and you like landscapes then I urge you to have a look at it. Here's a handy link.

Take care and enjoy the article, 

James

It's been a little while since my last post!

Hi,

I hope you're all well?

It has been a little while since my last post but that's a good thing, for me anyway. I've been pretty busy, pretty hectic working on some new things and balancing some other work at the same time. This is just a little catch up and a chance for you guys to see what I'm doing and what's coming up.

So first of all, my previous blog post with the review of the paper from Permajet was a resounding success. I've had a lot of very positive feedback from different people, including some nice comments from Permajet's Managing Director, over in the UK. They have since sent me a stack more paper (I mean a stack too! Check out the photo on my facebook page) so that I can get a better feel for their products and review some more of their paper. This is coming up probably towards the end of the next week.

I was recently asked to submit some work to 'In Focus' magazine. In Focus is a digital magazine produced exclusively for the iPad and features a variety of work, reviews and news from the professional photography industry. Unfortunately due to some timing constraints it didn't make this month's edition but I'm hopeful it will be in next month's issue.

I've been creating some new work and I'm currently figuring out a way for it to fit into a nice, coherent project. At the moment it's a collection of separate photographs but I've got some ideas on linking them together so it's just a case of deciding where I want to go with that work.

Next up I'm heading over to New Zealand at the end of the year where I intend to create a new personal project, the details of which I'll let you know a little closer the time. It will be a landscape/nature based project but I have to do a bit more research before I have a direction and intention for where I'm going with it.

Slightly further away I'm hoping to finalise a booking for a gallery exhibition next year, probably around May and it will be held locally in the Sandgate/Shorncliffe area. There's one or two little things I have to tie up with the gallery before it's finalised but it's an exciting prospect that I'm very much looking forward to. Of course there will be invites for each and every one of you that are able to come and view my work. I'll be sure to let you know once we're set for dates.

Right now I'm busy with other work and jobs that are keeping me from posting a little more than I'd like to but I'm hoping that you won't begrudge me that!

The next few posts are likely to be reviews as I've had some in the pipeline for a while and I'm keen to get them finished. I'll show you some more new work soon too. In fact I'll share a little something from my current working project at the bottom of this blog post.

That's really all I have time for now. I'll be in touch soon.

Take care, 

Best wishes,

James
